Extreme, unnecessary delays

As a first time home buyer, this has not been a pleasant experience. My condo that was supposed to be ready 3 years ago is still delayed, with no real explanation (excuse) other than COVID-19. The lack of communication is a joke - no updates other than the random occasional newsletter saying construction is on its way …
A friend of mine purchased a condo with a different builder one month prior to mine, and hers was supposed to be ready one year AFTER mine. Hers has been rented out with tenants for over 2 years now …
Not impressed at all.

Not recommended

More then 6 years delay and it probably will take another year to register this condo. High maintenance fees and pure quality. I wish I would never have bought that unit. Very disappointed. Such a wasting of time and money.

Would never recommend - never again

Purchased park avenue place almost 6 years ago, the amount of delays and lack of communication from builder is poor... I was once excited to move in, but after various delays in move in dates over the last 5 years, I now am no longer excited. As a first time home buyer, they are not only affecting my savings but my livelihood. I wish I bought with another developer that has better time management and professionalism. Do not recommend. Now they are using COVID-19 as an excuse why they are not done. Please explain to me what working outdoors has to do with COVID-19? There are 2 buildings and 22 floors on each, how much social distancing do they need that already is not there. Very disappointed.

I am very satisfied with my Solmar home

My new home built by Solmar in Niagara on the Lake is exactly as I expected. Solmar's construction team has proven that they are committed to providing after sales service to ensure that my expectations are met. From the overall design to the finishes I am pleased with the final product and the location is beautiful. Thank you Solmar!

Solmar Park Avenue Place

I purchased a condo unit and like many others have said, I am disgusted by their lack of customer service. Once you purchase they are annoyed if you ask ANY questions. My unit will be delayed and I first became aware of this on a third party website. I called to inquire and the salesperson was quite snippy. They’ve taken the joy out of purchasing and have left me in the dark about when construction will begin and when I can expect completion. They are very business minded - they’re out to sell and they don’t care about you once they have that signed contract. Beware!

Very disappointed

I would never recommend Solmar Homes to anyone looking to purchase.
Their customer service is terrible. They are untruthful and will honor anything that is not stated in the purchase contract. Even if it was in a flyer they gave you at their grand opening at their presentation center. Even if you can prove it in the flyer and on the sign. MAKE SURE IT IS IN YOUR CONTRACT!!!!
They made our first home buying experience very bad. We were delayed numerous times. We were notified 20 days before our firm closing date for another delay. Only plus side to that was the compensation payout which they did not make it easy for us to get. They do not return phone call or emails in a timely manor.
They will not honor any repairs to missing shingles a year and a half after owning they home even if their home owners manual states 2 years.
Their lack of empathy and lack of after purchase customer service is very poor to none.
All in all a very bad experience. Solmar took away from us the excitement and joy out of purchasing our first home. that we work so hard to purchase.
Buyer beware.
Read the rest of the comments. Wish we had before we bought with them

New home

After searching for a house and the perfect place to retire, I've finally found it. Solmar's homes in Niagara-on-the-Lake offer exactly what I'm looking for! The standard interior finishes are beyond what I expected and the location is perfect for me. I'm excited to live in a beautiful community of homes built by a company with a long history. From the start I felt comfortable entering the sales centre and the entire process has been great. Can't wait to move in!

The Cannery development

About 1.5 years ago we toured The Cannery model homes. Absolute garbage. You couldn't pay me to but one of these cheap, ugly homes. The finishes were the cheapest I have seen. What a disgrace to the area.
I truly feel sorry for anyone who has purchased one of these homes from Solmar.
