Default Delays

Has everyone been delayed recently? I'm hearing more and more that people are being delayed due to labour shortages and, in some cases, supply shortages.

I bought Minto in Barrhaven, and they have been providing buyers with monthly email updates. As far as their concern, they said their on schedule to have houses build by closing date. Then again, they are only required to let buyers know 90 days in advance.

Which buyer/location are you with?

My house in RSS (Urbandale) has been delayed from June to September. I have a friend who bought in FC (Phoenix) and he's delayed to October...

For your Urbandale home, do you know when they started construction? (I.e. when the foundation was poured?) Just wondering how long it takes to build a home from start to finish... I have a fall closing date, so trying to figure out if I might be delayed or not. Thanks!

I am not sure when construction started as I haven't been visiting the site regularly. When I went there the end of February, the foundation was already there and it was one of the first few houses that had a foundation. I went back two weeks ago and not only is my house framed, but all the other houses on the street are framed too.

Once they get started, they are really quick. However, if the issue is labour shortage and supply shortage...its hard to gage if we can close on time. I am still optimistic though.
