Quick possession homes are an exciting type of property to say the least. Nowadays, many new home buyers in Calgary are choosing to go with quick possession because:

* They are built with the latest and greatest floor plans, design and style

* Time-consuming design and upgrade choices are minimized or eliminated entirely

* There is little or no waiting time for the home to be built

Some quick possession homes are available immediately after purchase or within 90 days, while others may take three to six months to complete. Regardless, there are a handful of reasons why a quick possession home in Calgary may be for you.

Here are 6 reasons why you should consider buying a quick possession property the next time around.

You may have just moved to Calgary and need a place now with no time to wait. Or, you may just prefer not playing the waiting game as your new home gets built.

Whatever the reason, buying a quick possession home means that there is little or no waiting involved before moving in.

As mentioned above, some are immediately available while others take anywhere from one, two or even six months before they are ready.

A first-hand look

Do you happen to have a hard time visualizing what a room looks like from only the blueprint?

Do you feel like the 3D renderings that some home developers may have don’t give you the up close and personal experience you need to make a decision?

Quick possession homes eliminate the issues that can arise from buying from a floor plan by giving you a first-hand look at the home, allowing you to determine if this is the right one (or not) for you.

Simply take a detailed tour, sign on the dotted line and your well on your way!

Buying a Home Calgary


The convenience offered by quick possession homes is a key factor in their popularity on today’s market.

As a buyer, you do not have to spend time making decisions on design and upgrade options, providing much convenience by giving you more time of the day to focus on other things in life.

A level of trust is given to the developer to build a home for a contemporary lifestyle and family. If anyone knows what consumers want, it is the home builders!

Pre-determined prices

Resale properties sometimes need renovations to get them into a condition that you like. While there is nothing wrong with this, it ends up in you just spending more money on top of the purchase price.

On the other hand, building a new home from scratch requires making many decisions about various features and upgrades that are easy to get caught up in. Next thing you know you have upgraded everything in your house for the cost of a small fortune!

Buying a quick possession home in Calgary eliminates any grey area there might be when it comes to pricing as it is typically pre-set by the home builder.

Brand new

Quick possession homes in Calgary are built with only the latest building materials and follow a strict code set forth by government.

This means that you don’t have to be worried about how old the roofing is or if the attic is properly insulated.

It means that the caulking along window sills has not been worn down over the years and the carpet not stretched from use.

And if an issue does arise, you can rely on the new Alberta Home Buyer Protection Act introduced just last year.

Ready to move-in

There’s nothing that beats moving into a brand new quick possession home. Unlike some resale properties, you will be able to enjoy your home immediately upon moving in without the hassle of any pending renovations.

Another bonus is that you will not have to spend days cleaning every nook and cranny of your house to get it into a state you deem fit for living.

Quick possessions are already as clean as a whistle and ready for move-in – what’s not to like about that?!
