To begin, these units usually very competitive during the pre-construction phase. Condos, like any home appreciate over time, however trends have shown that condos appreciate at a remarkably rapid rate. So once the building is complete, you can expect the prices of the units to skyrocket. This translates into a great investment for people who “get in on the ground level” of new developments. Another interesting aspect of this kind of purchase is the fact that many complexes sell the units as “designer ready.” Designer ready implies that it will be up to the owner of the unit to choose the interior design as the units are basically an empty shell without appliances, paint, fixtures, counters or cupboards.

Now, most developments will have struck deals with certain designers or firms that will offer owners a variety of interior packages. Typically this can involve any number of different materials for floors, countertops and cupboards with many options for fixtures and of course you can personalize the paint. If you are looking to create you ideal space; personalized in every way, then a designer ready condo is the ideal purchase.

Be aware if the unit you are looking to buy is really ready to be decorated because some units are drained and ready to go and some are not. Be sure to get in writing from any developer that is included in the purchase price and what not. There is no consultation with the design company you have chosen or recommended by the builder, make sure you see the artist rendering of everything to do on your empty list. You should never give any green light until you see what the image looks like and what the computer looks like. This is an important step in ensuring that your choice of colors and general design options work and create themes that you have imagined. This is your chance to create the condo of your dreams.
