Just do your research online wrt location, future developments around the area like Walmart, schools, grocery stores etc. You do not need an agent to buy a new home, but they would have a better idea of New homes in Phase 1

buzzbuzzhomes maps out some builders, some builders you need to deal with an agent those are listed on realtor.ca

Which areas are you looking for?

Do you still have both of your kidneys?

Selling one should be able to get you VIP access to a phase 1 release.... Or at the very least, a spot in line

I heard someone paid like $50k to get a VIP spot (for making purchase before it's available to the general public), not sure how true but it's insane.

Even a town home in that area is asking for 1 million.

Be prepared to camp outside if you really want the home. It's nuts right now, it's like a boxing day sale or something, but in reality they're close to a million bucks.

Unless the builder has a ticket system which is rare to see these days, you may have to camp out.

Chinese people love the restaurants and schools there. And of course, their fellow peers. Also, no high rises so less ghetto people around.

Location, schools, well off demographics, diverse population demographics(English, persians, Chinese,Koreans, Russians etc) and close enough to Toronto via car and transit but not too close

It's a lot better managed than other municipalities with good facilities, parks, and council is not run by corrupt politicians like in Vaughan
