Interested in Selling your loft?
Selling a loft is an exciting process but lofts are a unique beast in the real estate game, and thus it takes some extra knowledge to navigate their quirks (and benefits), that’s where a loft expert comes in. Here’s our list of top things a loft expert can help you with when selling your loft:
Unlike a regular condo, lofts are often subject to GST. If a loft is considered to be commercial property or the original owner has deferred their GST, then GST on the current market value may apply. A loft expert ensures whatever your situation this is properly disclosed for sale.
The zonings of lofts are complex, by knowing the ins and outs of all of them a loft expert can market your loft to the fullest potential on both residential and commercial platforms. Unauthorized Square Footage - most mezzanines are not considered authorized square footage. Unauthorized is technically a material latent defect as it’s not permitted by the city and this can run some serious risk. Understanding the FSR (Floor Space Ratio) and intricacies of each loft building is essential as is proper disclosure during sale to ensure you’re protected.
Lofts attract creative minds. With the vast openness and empty canvas feel, many people renovate. Often these renovations can be without permits or DIYs, if so these need to be properly disclosed during the sale of your loft.
Finding The Right Buyer Loft
There’s a wide variety of loft styles out there, in every different neighbourhood. From how they’re zoned, to what the building is like, from brick walls, to concrete industrial, and polished soft lofts. A loft expert knows how to navigate the market and find the perfect buyer for your loft.
