How Canci Homes Operates
If you are thinking of
having a home built, there are a few questions we need
answered. Among them, we need to know what your budget is,
whether you own your building lot or not, the approximate size
and style of home you are contemplating, whether you have a
specific house plan in mind or not, your "must have" list,
your "would like" list and your "can do
without" items, as well as the time frame you are setting for
yourselves. Armed with this information, and assuming we feel
we can work within the parameters you have set, then we can
sit down and start discussing a basic house plan. So far
neither of us has committed to anything except spending a few
hours discussing your next house, and no money has changed
Now for the next step.
We'll draw up a basic house plan for your perusal, and we'll
wait for your feedback. You don't like the size of the family
room, or the kitchen isn't big enough, or the ensuite is too
luxurious? That's fine, we'll make the necessary adjustments.
And we are trying to work within your budget. Now if you
decide to take it one step further, to the point of having
blue prints drawn, there will be a charge. But don't
fret...the cost will be credited to you if we build your home!
So far, does that sound reasonable?
The question remains:
where do you want your house? Canci Homes Corporation Inc.
no longer has any lots available for immediate development, so you would first have to secure a building lot. In the event you find one that you believe suitable for the type of home you want, we would be happy to assist you in the design and construction stages. The only thing that will differ...
Let's assume for the
moment that you have fallen in love with the house plan, you
have had the blueprints drawn and you have picked the lot. You
would like to proceed to the next step, that is to the
Agreement of Purchase and Sale step. We will draw it up for
you, spelling out the exact obligations and privileges of both
parties, and the time frame within which it will take place.
You can then take it to your lawyer for his perusal and
comments. Once you are ready to proceed, we will ask for a
meeting to sign the Agreement of Purchase and Sale and a down
payment as a sign of your goodwill and commitment.
Essentially, if you buy a home in the $200,000. range, and we
own the lot, the average down payment we request is $20,000.
and that down payment is fully insured under the Tarion Warranty Corporation, which provides the new home warranty coverage that Ontario buyers are entitled to by law.
All through the construction phase, we will assist you in
making your sample choices, from the color of the roof
shingles to the kitchen cabinets, the bathroom vanities, the
countertops, the ceramic tiles and marble where applicable,
the cushion flooring and the carpets. We'll even go pick your
light fixtures together, if you so desire. After all, this is
your house: shouldn't you have your say?
When construction is
completed as per the terms of the Agreement, we proceed as
with any transaction... You pay us and we transfer title. For
the next seven years, your home is covered under the Tarion Warranty Corporation, which provides the new home warranty coverage that Ontario buyers are entitled to by law. And you are finally home...
In the event you own
your lot, then we follow the same steps except that instead of
dealing with an Agreement of Purchase and Sale, we sign a
Construction contract. Here again, all the terms are spelled
out, including the schedule of progress payments. Simple
process, wouldn't you agree?
