One of the most exciting things about buying a new condominium is the opportunity to select the finishes that will make your home truly your own. There are a multitude of upgraded finishes that you can buy from the developer and have them installed at the construction stage. Doing so will allow these upgrades to be included in your Tarion warranty. Our research has shown that the following are the most popular upgrades people purchase for their condominiums in general:
