Buying With ConfidenceMordialloc/chelsea Leader - Published May 2015
Buyer satisfaction is the key to a successful development, and buying off the plan allows first homebuyers like Meg Rayner to get into the market.
"Being a Bayside girl I knew I wanted to buy in the area, but I wanted to make sure I went with a developer that could deliver quality and in a reasonable amount of time," Ms Rayner says.
"Pace has a great reputation and I felt confident that the apartments would be a great fit for me as a young first homebuyer," she says.
Ms Rayner says Pace kept her reassured all the way by regularly updating her with the build.
"I honestly couldn't believe it when the apartments were completed early, and with no compromises."Buying an apartment off the plan requires trust in a developer's ability to deliver a quality build on time.

That sounds reasonable enough yet we've all heard the stories of rogue developers failing to meet buyers' basic expectations.
There are many facets of apartment development that can become complicated.
Pace Development Group Sales and Marketing Director, Cameron Yates says these projects usually involve dozens of companies collaborating to produce the promised product.
"It is here, in the pipelines of miscommunications, that some developments do not live up to their expectations,'' Mr Yates says.
"Developer and builder hybrids, such as Pace Development Group, give homebuyers and investors that personal guarantee that what you see is what you get - with no compromise in quality."
Mr Yates says the Pace team offers not only outstanding build quality, but also educates and engages with the buyer throughout the whole process.
From pre-purchase to post-settlement, Pace has built its reputation on having the in-house facilities and skills to not only develop, design and build apartments, but provide assistance to the buyer even after settlement.
"It is our reputation for quality finishes, sophisticated design, and top locations, that brings old and new buyers back to our developments, " Mr Yates says.
"For mixed-use developer specialists like Pace, reputation, attention to detail and securing prime real estate is why they are trusted as a community member, not just a developer."
