I'm not sure about pre dry wall inspection, since I've requested for a frame walk and they rejected my request. But to the point, it depends on what kind of internet you get, you will have your modem in your garage or your living room. Personally I went with Bell so my modem is mounted to the wall in my garage but I added ethernet cables from the garage leading to the 2nd floor and the 3rd floor, so I don't have much problem getting good internet. Also the Modem/Router combo nowadays should be plenty for the size of our units for Wifi, I think the router built in should be ac wireless(which should support a/b/g/n devices also). Do note that I don't get wireless signal in my Rec room on the first floor, it might be because of the wall and also the machine room with all the heater and such, but I have pod extenders so it helps a lot and now I have signal in there. Hope this helps.

Do you mean the one by the construction office where there's a T shape intersection? I don't think it's placed oddly, did you notice how fast sometimes people drive there? I do however feel like the the roads is angled oddly at that spot, especially because the dirts usually covers the curb by the office entrance so you would think you can go straight if you didn't realize there's a small curb.

The HST and land transfer tax should be the least of your worry considering you've probably calculated that within your budget from the beginning, I would look into how much is the ones that hits you hard and out of no such as things like the development fee and things like how Averton charges you a year of property tax(it's basically pre paid for your upcoming property tax for the first year). Most people usually will take the land transfer tax into consideration when purchasing but things like these can sneak up on you.

Thanks guys for your feedback...definitely helps to keep these things in mind. Another thing, do the homes come with a furnace and ventless water tank? Just trying to understand the process...do they have you an option to choose, or you have to go to a company to get it?

Yes to both, furnace and water heater. Your lawyer will receive all the info with regards to setup of these and various other things (specific companies are already in place based on the builder - Provident, Cricket Comfort, Enbridge, Veridian).
Specifically re: the water heater it is a setup through Cricket billed through on your Enbridge.

Hey Guys,

Were are coming up on our occupancy in June (allegedly), couple of questions if you are willing to share.

1) Is anyone using Internet from Teksavvy or similar?
2) What are the approximate rental costs for the HVAC and Water Heater unit are? If I recall the sales office estimated anywhere between $80 and $130. Are they in that ball park?
3) I can't recall, is water billed or is that included in our monthly maintenance?

Thanks,

Steve
