Over the past few years, newly completed apartments have rarely been available for sale as most properties were sold off the plan. However as the rate of sale for new property in Sydney is slowly cooling, we are starting to see more and more new properties available for sale upon completion.
While "off the plan" buyers rely on computer generated images and plans (we call them 'cartoons and dreams'), there is nothing quite like the touch and feel of a newly minted apartment. Aside from the obvious benefit of being able to move in straight away, you can clearly see the finishes and appliances, and work out where your furniture will go. And with the banks making lending increasingly difficult, it is nice to know that you can organise a valuation and finance approval before making the commitment to purchase.
We have a small selection of ready to move in apartments in Strathfield and St Ives, and in one month Drummoyne and Hornsby will also be completed. For people not quite ready to move in, we also have a number of projects at various stages of construction - there is something for everyone!
