The First Time Home Buyer Blog: Summer Building Progress!

Hello again! It’s been awhile! I apologize for the delay, if you have been following along! It has been an extremely busy summer and I just never found the time! But now that fall is unfortunately here I will try and give updates more often.

If this is the first time you are checking in with me, here are the links to the previous blogs you have missed:

While I was off being busy with work and summer activities a lot has been happening with my new home! So I thought for this blog I would let you relive the summer of building activity in pictures!


I will be officially a First Time Home OWNER on Friday, February 6, 2015! I am super excited and can’t wait to start using all the fun home accessories I have been buying :)

Stay tuned for my next blog; I will be talking about my plan review!

Talk to you soon,
Alyssa :)

There Are Plenty of Reasons to Visit Harmony Condominiums This Fall!

In my role of Director of Sales and marketing for Parkview Homes, I have aligned my work schedule so that I share a similar schedule with my sales team so that I can support my team when needed.

My office is always located in a professionally decorated model home, which is quite a delight to work in such a pleasant environment. I often make a joke that my office is bigger than the Mayor’s.

Recently, I moved out of our Cornelius Court model home, (which by the way is now for sale) and moved into the Brand New Harmony Condominium (building # 3). It’s fantastic to meet people that are looking for a change in lifestyle (simplifying life, downsizing, freedom to travel) and reducing overall bills and freeing up money to enjoy those special moments in life.

Susan Fenn, from our professional design studio, has done an excellent job in selecting high end and elegant finishes which makes showing off the last 9 suites a real pleasure. In this third and final building, there are 10 suites per floor (30 total in the condominium).

The selection is still excellent and when people are visiting for the first time, I point out a variety of lifestyle decision points:

1)      What floor would you prefer to live on? First, second or third?
2)      Would you prefer a suite with Western or Eastern exposure?
3)      In your spacious bathroom, would you prefer a tiled walk-in shower with glass shower doors or a traditional bathtub?
4)      Each suite has been carefully appointed with different color themes (warm grey, traditional brown, Masculine, Earthtone, etc.)
5)      Respectfully, I also will ask about budget as we have condo suites now being offered at various price points; starting in the $190’s and going as high as $220,000.

The people who I meet like the fact that they have so much choice and by asking these questions, it helps to narrow down which suites to tour. Currently, I have an excellent selection of condo suites to suit all tastes and budgets.

I will also point out the amazing “Builders Incentive”, which is now running until the end of October 2014. The current incentive includes the following:

ü  FREE - 6 Piece Appliance Package (Fridge, Stove, Dishwasher, Over the Range Microwave & stackable Washer and Dryer)
ü  FREE – Air Conditioning
ü  FREE – Hardwood Flooring in the living room and hallway
ü  FREE – Cogeco package (TV, Internet and Phone for 3 months)
ü  FREE – Additional discount from the builder for $3000.00

The suites are all 2 bedrooms and one bath. The kitchen features a large pantry and is open to the dining and living areas. Each suite comes standard with its own laundry facilities, linen closet, and the master bedroom features a large walk-in closet. Each suite also has a large patio door with a walk out to a very large patio (main floor) or covered balcony (2nd and 3rd floor).

I’m excited and proud to offer such an amazing property, with a West-End location and of course, all Brand New. Our Harmony Condominium features assigned parking, security, tasteful interior hallways and elegant foyer with high ceilings and chandelier.

Location, Location, Location…

Harmony Condominiums is located less than one minute from highway #115 for easy commuting to the 401. Shopping and restaurants are minutes away. Enjoy meeting new friends at the Mapleridge Community Centre and the Peterborough Sport and Wellness Centre.

Looking for your first new home, thinking of downsizing or tired of paying rent, then plan to visit our condominium and tour through 9 well-appointed 2-bedroom suites. I’d be delighted to spend some time with you and your friends or family and highlight the many reasons why our final Harmony Condominium is a great place to call home.

To find out more about our Harmony Condo suites or to arrange a personal tour, please call me at 705-748-4663 (cell: 705-868-6441)

I know you will see the many advantages to an affordable condo lifestyle.
