"DO YOUR RESEARCH" OFF THE PLAN CHECKLIST
Apartment living offers a wonderful opportunity to live in a stunning new home with a rich array of amenity on your doorstep. However, before purchasing your apartment “Off-the-plan”, we recommend you do your research so you select the best project, developer and builder using the below checklist:
Does the company have a strong track record?
It is important to consider the builder and developer’s reputation. Hyecorp have been successfully developing and building quality apartments on Sydney’s Lower North Shore for over 25 years and have an enviable reputation for our reliability in delivery high quality, multi award winning projects.
Does the one company oversee the entire process of developing, building, selling and post completion in house?
Hyecorp offer an integrated approach, delivering the planning, design, development, marketing and sales, construction and post completion management “in house” so it is a seamless operation with the purchaser at the centre of everything we do.
Who is the builder?
It is important to select a builder with a strong reputation for delivering quality apartments over many years. Hyecorp have an uncompromising commitment to quality and have an enviable reputation for its quality apartments from over three decades of delivering premium apartments in Sydney.
Do they have local knowledge?
It is important to select a developer who understands the local area and delivers the best project design based on local knowledge. Over the past 5 years Hyecorp have taken an active interest in Lane Cove, a suburb we believe is the hidden gem of not only the North Shore but Sydney. The reasons for Hyecorps enthusiasm about Lane Cove are the reasons why you should consider Lane Cove as your new home.
What is their construction methodology?
A builder’s approach to their construction quality, is of paramount importance to the quality of the project that is completed. Hyecorp ensure each of our apartment projects are built on solid foundations. Unlike many suburbs of Sydney, Lane Cove sits on sandstone and we excavate down to that rock ensuring a stable foundation for our projects.
Are they an Australian company?
It is important to consider whether the developer and builder are an Australian company with a strong track record. Hyecorp are a diversified Australian property group with extensive experience over three decades in property development, construction and funds management.
Can you look at their past developments to see the quality?
It is important to look at the developer and builders past projects to see their long-standing quality. Hyecorp promote each of our past projects on our website and we suggest you drive by to look at the quality of these developments.
Is the apartment design, finish, layout designed for liveability?
It is important that an apartment is designed for liveability. Hyecorp are focused on liveability, flexibility and thoughtfully designed apartments which focus on quality, generous storage, private outlooks, which are embedded in each of our developments.
Is the apartment development pet friendly?
With so many people having pets it is important to check if a project is pet friendly? Hyecorp always ensure each of their projects is pet friendly?
How much are the strata levies?
It is important to check the estimated strata levies before you purchase your apartment. When you purchase an apartment there are areas of common ownership in the complex. This is controlled by the buildings body corporate. Strata levies are paid by all apartment owners for the upkeep of the apartment complex and for future major works. Strata levies are used to maintain common areas such as the pool, gym, cinema and relevant insurances such as building and public liability. Hyecorp ensure the appropriate strata levies are estimated to ensure the best coverage of your future home.
Do I get a car park?
It is important to enquire about parking as not all apartments will have allocated parking and in some Council areas on-street parking is largely restricted. You will need to check parking, make sure its on the apartment title and check the size and access to the allocated space. Hyecorp have very generous car parking allocation at Elena with all apartments … even the studio’s… having parking on title. With the three-bedroom apartments having two car spaces on title.
When selecting an apartment development, it is important to ensure you have generous storage. Hyecorp offer individual storage cages for all apartments.
