Buying a new home in Ottawa can be stressful. There are so many builders and options to choose from. Each offering different value propositions and with varying degrees of quality. Our team can help you navigate all the difficult choices. We can help you choose your perfect lot and neighbourhood.  Most builders are happy to work with Realtors on the purchase. It never costs the buyer anything to have a professional guide them through the process.

One question I get all the time is what should we upgrade with the builder? Much depends on personal preference. We have surveyed over 100 people and asked them which upgrades they regretted not doing.

Here were the most popular answers.
  • Walkthrough shower (no cleaning of glass needed)
  • Finishing the stairs to the basement
  • Christmas light outlet outside with on/off switch inside
  • An outlet in the pantry for charging station
  • Wider front door
  • Larger windows in the basement
  • Floor matching vent covers
  • More jets/upgrading of shower
  • More pot lights in kitchen & basement
  • Upgrade the paint. Builder grade is too cheap
  • More drawers in the kitchen
  • Add conduits for tv cables
  • Electrical outlets in unfinished basements
