Condo living is all about making everyday life more straightforward, more enjoyable, and richer in convenience – but what if an Ottawa home builder were to go the extra mile and really make something really special? Enter a Valecraft condo flat, and you’ll see that’s exactly what we’ve done. We build homes that offer ample space, plenty of natural light and comfort. In addition, they include refined, elegant touches and a comfortable atmosphere that make them beautiful and inviting. This makes condo flat ownership not just about functionality and practicality, but also about making it clear that you’re a premium homeowner who didn’t – and shouldn’t – settle for less.
That’s the Valecraft difference, and we’re excited to share it with you.
When it came to designing our Ottawa condos, we knew we weren’t going to settle for just building anywhere – a sense of community is all about cohesiveness, accessibility and having great neighbours. We’re excited to have condo flats in Ottawa South and Deerfield Village 2, one of our largest and most stunning purpose-built communities in Canada’s Capital. In fact, we’ve been building in Ottawa South since 2006 with the first phase of Deerfield Village, and our teams are excited to continue our legacy in the area with this latest development. More residents than ever are looking to purchase a premium condo flat in the neighbourhood, and Valecraft is proud to offer the ideal solution with our newest properties.
Valecraft’s Deerfield Village is home to eco-friendly properties designed to help Ottawa cut down on its carbon footprint. Our ENERGY STAR certified homes are surrounded by the beauty of nature and wonderful outdoor retreats such as trails and parks, yet at the same time, they are created to respect the environment around us. Enjoy a convenient, premium living solution that’s not just luxurious to you but respectful to nature around you also.
Condo flats built by Valecraft are known for their conveniences and features. These include everything from balconies to ample storage space, open-concept layouts, an included parking space, your choice of finishes, and more! Enjoy easy access to local amenities such as spectacular trails, great shopping and entertainment, many amazing dining options and beautiful surrounding scenery. Combined with our Design Centre upgrades, there’s never been an easier way to find a conveniently designed and situated home that reflects your personality.
Also, we believe homeowners should be able to live in a property that accurately reflects their personal tastes from the get-go. That’s why we offer customizable aspects of your new condo flat, and it’s a great solution for those who want lavish, premium-quality finishes incorporated into the look of their new home. Cross the threshold into luxury, elegance and absolute comfort, the Valecraft way.
Valecraft communities don’t just offer a comfortable, inviting area to call home, but also one that doesn’t skip on convenience. Those seeking something new, familiar or a mix of the two will be happy in developments such as Deerfield Village 2, where we place the activities and amenities of Ottawa South right on your doorstep. Our new condos in Ottawa provide easy access to public transportation, excellent schools for kids of all ages, plenty of parks and recreational space, and plenty of great shopping. Some areas even offer unique perks such as access to local specialty shops, cinemas, and seasonal events. Simply put, we design our homes and communities to ensure homeowners enjoy new experiences and plenty of conveniences, all without sacrificing any of the amenities that they cherish.
Owning a condo in Ottawa can offer a whole new perspective – one that inspires you to see more of what Canada’s Capital has to offer and introduces new opportunities. Our open-concept, bright, luxurious home designs paired with conveniently located community developments give you the best of both worlds – in other words, the ultimate premium living experience, inside and out.
Timelines will differ per development, but our team will keep you up-to-date on the status of your condo through each of the development stages. It’s important to note that some upgrades can add to the lead time as it may be necessary to obtain certain parts. On the off chance that something is delayed, we will adjust the timelines to ensure your condo is delivered as agreed upon.
Yes! If you are a first-time homebuyer (or have not undergone a transaction in the last 4 years) you can use up to $25,000 from your RRSP to put towards your down payment, tax-free. You will, however, have to pay this amount back over the next 15 years in installments. To learn more about the Home Buyer’s Plan (HBP), visit the www.canada.ca website.
First time home buyers are eligible for a refund of all or part of the land transfer tax. To claim this refund, you must be at least 18 years of age and a new buyer. Also, your spouse cannot have previously owned a home anywhere else in the world. Speak to your mortgage broker for details.
If you are planning to buy the condo pre-construction to sell it at a later date in order to make a profit, you’ll need to hold the property as your primary residence and reside in it for one entire calendar year to avoid capital gains taxes. This means that the property cannot be used as an income property during this time, otherwise it would not be exempt. Also, only one family unit can designate one property per year as their primary residence. To learn more about capital gains taxes, please contact your mortgage broker.
There are a number of notable differences between buying a pre-construction condo vs. resale. This includes phased deposits, GST payments, and longer periods to secure the mortgage, just to name a few. There are many advantages to owning a pre-construction condo unit, such as choosing the layout, finishes, and owning a brand new property. To ensure it’s the right choice for you, our team will provide you with all the information needed so that you’ll know exactly what to expect.
To purchase a new Valecraft condo, you are required to give a $5,000 reservation deposit toward entering the buying process. Once the upgrades have been decided upon, a Purchase and Sale Agreement will be drafted and signed by the purchaser(s). The Agreement of Purchase and Sale is conditional until 10 days from the acceptance of the agreement from Valecraft Homes. During the conditional period, purchaser(s) are required to obtain lawyers approval. Within 14 days of the condition respecting financing is waived and written confirmation of approval of mortgage is required. The firm up process entails the purchaser to give a second deposit for the amount of $10,000. If you have any questions, please contact us for more information.
