If you’re in the market for a Condo in the Miami area, you may be surprised to learn that they are usually described as “decorator ready”. Not sure what that actually means? Let me explain.
If you’re buying a condo, you’re allowed to completely customize it to the style that you’re looking for, which can be fun, but also a lot of work!
If you’re buying a “designer ready condo”, you would need to work with a design-build firm to complete the unit for you, as it’s not a DIY project by any stretch of the imagination.
Types of “Designer Ready” Condos
The term “designer ready” can describe two types of condos which are called white box and grey box units. White box units will usually have drywall, molding, doors, etc.
A grey box unit is very unfinished, with no drywall or fixtures at all, about as empty as it comes. Hence the name “grey box”, that’s all you’re really getting.
No matter which type of condo you’re buying, you need help, and expert help to be more specific. Remodeling and finishing a condo comes with a very specific set of challenges that should be dealt with by a team that has seen it all before, knows the rules, and regulations.
With most “designer ready” units being sold before the development is fully completed, your part in terms of the finishing usually adds several months to the timeline, so prepare for that.
