Arrow Minto - Kingmeadow North Oshawa

Hi All,

Just booked a home in Minto's Kingmeadow community which is coming at Winchester and Simcoe N in Oshawa N. They are offering townhomes and detached. Site is also next to 407 extension. I have booked a detached. Also there is a relatively new community of Tribute homes already built ..

Any inputs about the area ? .. Any1 else on here who purchased at this site ? When is your closing and what did u buy? We can use this for discussion.

Also if anyone is interested in booking, contact me as as I have already bought and have a lot of info on it..

Thanks..

Congrats. Which model did you buy? Can you tell me what the deposit structure is? What are their incentives. I know tribute is offering $10k in bonus upgrades. What about Minto? Oh, and when are the closing dates? Thanks!

Thanks rjr.

I have bought the Rosecroft model (3000 sq feet) > 43 Foot Lot

Standard deposit structure > $30K in 5 months (they may be flexible on the timeline of the payment if you can negotiate)

Current Incentives > $10K in upgrades & $2500 in upgrade bonus for referrals. (Both the involved parties in the referral get the bonus if the purchase goes through.. and hence my post here )

My closing date is 2014 Dec .. yes its a long time away but I prefer it that way as I am presently in a newer home and this will hopefully give me some time to build some much needed equity in my present home.

Most of the closings depending on the lot are from Summer 2013 to late 2014.

Homes definitely have a price advantage over the tribute site.. but main draw was the area being close to UoIT/Durham college, 407 extension and they have approved a commercial Rio Can center at the intersection of Winchester & Simcoe (Right next to the site)..

Did not find too much info about Minto low rise build quality but I am hoping it would be good. Let me know if any more info is required as I have done a lot of homework on it lol

I booked a Rosecroft with a closing of Dec 2014. I spoke to my sales person and she has confirmed we should be getting the upgrade pricing booklets by May/June. Construction on the site is slated to start late summer 2013. I will let you know if I find any other info

Default Congrats

Congrats on your new purchase. I know there were a few problems with student rental of houses in the tribute community just across from the college and a little south of you -Simcoe and Conlin, but other than that it is a nice area.
