Your Sales Process

Step 1: Assess your must have and nice to haves for your new home

Consider the items that are required in your new home. Start with the essentials such as where you want to live, how much space you need, how many bedrooms or bathrooms are needed, or how many parking spaces you require. Once this is determined, you can move to assessing how your new home will support the way you live: do you prefer open concept living or like smaller rooms? Do you need a home office? Will kids need separate space to work or play? Once you go through the process of determining your needs, you will have a better understanding of what type of home to be looking for and where.

Step 2: Set a home budget and get pre-approved by your bank of choice

When starting the home buying process, it is important to understand a realistic budget for your new home purchase. To streamline the purchasing process, visit your preferred bank to get a mortgage pre-approval. It’s important to note that we only accept mortgage pre-approvals from a tier one bank.

Step 3: Choose a community and book a sales appointment

When you have found your dream community, make an appointment with our respective Sales Team to learn more about availability, pricing and purchasing information.

Step 4: Purchase your new home

When you have decided on your dream home, make sure to bring your cheque book, government issued id and mortgage pre-approval when you come to sign your Agreement of Purchase and Sale (APS) with our Sales Teams. Once you have signed a copy of your APS, you will be given a copy to review with your lawyer during your conditional period. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your agreement, please reach out to our Sales Team for assistance. Once your conditional period is over, your deal is now firm and the sales process is complete.

Step 1: Visiting the Décor Studio

Our experienced team of Décor Consultants are here to guide you through the process of selecting colours, finishes and features. A Sorbara Décor Consultant will be in touch after your purchase to schedule your virtual or in person appointment(s) and review the finishing selection process with you.

Step 2: Your Framewalk Appointment

This is your first opportunity to tour your new home and get a feel for the space and layout prior to the installation of drywall and finishes. The primary purpose of the frame-walk is to allow you an opportunity to see and share in the excitement of construction on your home. Our team will reach out to you directly to schedule an appointment when your home is ready for a frame walk.

Step 3: Your Pre-Delivery Inspection

You will have the opportunity to inspect your home with a Sorbara representative prior to your closing date. This is a formal inspection where you will document any warrantable deficiencies and pose any questions you may have about the performance and maintenance of your home. A Sorbara representative will contact you directly to schedule your Pre-Delivery Inspection approximately 2 weeks before your closing.

Step 4: Preparing for your closing

Move-in day has almost arrived. In order to prepare for closing its important that you complete the following:
• Retain a lawyer and ensure that all closing documents are finalized 3-5 days before your closing date
• Contact your bank to arrange your mortgage for closing
• 2 weeks before your closing date contact all your utility companies to update your home address
• If required, notify Canada Post that you will be moving and set-up mail forwarding

Step 5: Your Home Closing

Move-in day has arrived. Once we have received all of the closing documents from your lawyer, we will contact you to arrange the pick-up of your keys. Congratulations and we are thrilled to ‘Welcome You Home’
