From my experience the only pros of dealing with the builder for upgrades is that the cost of them can be rolled up into the cost of the house.

From my experience I would only do with the builder what I cannot do after taking possession, or do not want to deal with after possession.

The builders prices are almost always overpriced and...

Corbeil was a good experience for us until things went badly. Our fridge died in a few months and the delivery people caused a lot of damage, but they won't do anything about it. Our second fridge is...

I would never buy a house backing onto a school or a corner lot based on past experience of noise, auto and pedestrian traffic. Parks and green space are also a risk if they become a hang out area,...

I don't think the neighbour is contesting just where it drains but that the downspout is on his side of the property line. From his point of view, I can understand it. If he says nothing, he's...

Kain has some good points there which I was going to suggest you consider. I think the only reason to by in that particular development is if you need to be in that location for a good reason.
