Watch the Construction of Your Condo

by Nick Molnar on September 2, 2010

If you are buying an unfinished condo or townhouse near Notre Dame but don’t live in South Bend you can still keep an eye on the construction of your condo. A dozen photos of the interior taken once a week will let you watch your place come together. It may even help you catch any mistakes or wrong finishes before your final walk-through.

Here are the photos I took for one of my clients who bought an Irish Crossings townhouse:

As an example, here is the progress of the kitchen:

July 27th
Irish Crossings Construction: Kitchen July 27th

August 16th
Irish Crossings Construction: Kitchen on August 16th

August 27th
Irish Crossings Construction: Kitchen August 27th

This is pretty basic work. It took me about fifteen minutes per week  to take photos, upload them to Picasa and share a link with the couple buying this townhouse. But they were a five hour drive from South Bend, making it impractical for them to watch the work personally.

If you’re buying a condo that is under construction, shouldn’t you ask the person representing you to help you monitor its progress? Is anyone representing you?

I love the accountability and peace of mind that you provide for people who live away from the city. What a difference it must make for your clients.

I looked at Irish Crossings last year. A very nice development and the larger units around the pond are the best in the whole area. Last I saw they still had a few foundations to put in to complete the development. Have they completed all of the foundations yet? I’m sure once construction is done this will be a top development for decades.

Very nice. That’s a great service to provide.
