Yes. This makes me want to throw up a little bit. But it works out to almost the same because you don't need 10% deposit on the whole house (40k on 400k)... But it's still crap... LOL.

I think at the end of the day each builder gets enough deposit from you to make sure you don't even think about walking away from the house Cardel does 10% of entire home but only 10% of upgrades, Mattamy does $25K for lot and 35% on upgrades, Valecraft does 10K or 15K for lot and 50% for upgrades and so on...

Congrats Milad! We are in lot 117. I actually know one of your neighbours (she's a couple of lots away from you) and she is an extremely nice lady!

Have you been contacted by the design centre yet? We are expecting a call from them by the end of this week or early next week!

What do you think about Mr. "H"? Isn't he just awesome!!

Good luck!

cool!

I think we were told it will be Myra as well. we have some idea, but we haven't scoped it out yet. I will let you know if I have specific questions, thanks

I really hope they don't run into any issues with the city and permits and etc so that the development goes smooth...but we shall see
