Insider Tip! Did you know that when you purchase something that is pre-construction you get a guilt-free 10 day rescission period? This means, once you sign the contract – you’ll have 10 days to have it vetoed by a lawyer (the contracts tend to be 30+ pages), ensure your financing lines up and – if you later feel your buy was on impulse – you’ve been given the gift of a ‘return policy’ on real estate (which is rare)!
