A very special portion of the real estate market exists in the area of development, or Pre-Construction, condos. These are units that are purchased based on the projected plans for a building that is not yet built. A buyer may visit a temporary showroom, located near to the proposed location of the building to see models and floor plans of the various units the seller hopes to construct, or simply receive a package with this information electronically. Purchasing at this stage allows the buyer to have greater control in the outcome of their unit. They can make a different type of investment and purchase at a lower price per square foot than what is typically available post-construction. If you want to be able to choose your floors, finishes and appliances, at less than the cost to purchase someone else's choices from the past, Pre-Construction condos for sale might appeal to you.
