New Developments in Vancouver:
We have all read or heard the news about new development issues:
* due to costs being too high to make it finacially viable for the developer to proceed, they either cancel all the pre-sale contracts or you have to pay more money.
* Does it come with a parking stall - are you sure?? it could be a 99yrs lease!! 
* What happens when the project is delayed for 6 months or more??
Having an experienced professional realtor to help you with the details of your pre-sale purchase will be a huge benefit to you and it does not cost you anything!!
At the very least consult a lawyer and show them the developer's Sales contract!!
"First and foremost they should work with a realtor. A licensed realtor is knowledgeable in working with presales, looking at the contract, the clauses and developer's disclosure statement..." says Valouche."It doesn't cost anything to buy with a realtor and it allows buyers to be protected by a special emergency fund that agents pay into."
