How can I express interest in purchasing a lot in Vista Hills on Raspberry Place?

On Friday, April 9th, a link to register and express interest in a purchasing appointment will be sent to the individuals on our Vista Hills email list. Not on our email list? Sign up here. The registration form will let our Sales Representatives know that you / your client(s) are interested in a single-detached home in Vista Hills.

Please note that due to the limited number of homes being sold, registration DOES NOT guarantee a purchasing appointment will be received. Submissions will be accepted until Sunday, April 11th at 11:59 PM. Only one Google form will be accepted per purchaser and per household. Duplicate or incomplete registrations will be removed.


What do I need to fill out the registration form?

Please prepare in advance for registration. You / your client(s) will require the following in order to submit a registration form: a Google account that can be linked to the form, a completed Buyers Agency Agreement form, and if working with a realtor we require their information as well (including name, phone number, email, brokerage, and photo of their business card).

If you / your client(s) are selected for a purchasing appointment, the primary buyer will be contacted by a representative of Activa in the coming weeks to schedule the appointment. Activa will schedule purchasing appointments until all lots are sold.


What information will I require to submit the form?

  • Primary purchaser info (name, email, phone number, street address)
  • If there is a secondary purchaser (name, email, phone number, street address)
  • Solicitor information (optional) (firm name, solicitor name, email, phone number, street address)
  • If you are an agent, or you are working with one (name, email, phone number, brokerage, photo of a business card)
  • Home preference details (personal/family/investment use, square footage, preferred lot size, preferred floorplan, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, family size)


How are you selecting individuals for a purchasing opportunity?

Submissions are NOT selected on a first-come, first-serve basis. All submissions will be evaluated by Activa. Please ensure you take your time filling out the form and submit all requested documentation.

NOTE: A mortgage pre-approval is mandatory to purchase a home in Vista Hills.


How will the appointment process work?

If selected, our Sales Representatives will email the primary buyer with an opportunity to purchase. Due to the status of COVID-19, purchasing appointments will take place virtually only unless there are extenuating circumstances. You will need to bring:

  • Valid Driver’s License
  • Mortgage Verification Letter
  • Deposit Cheque

At this appointment, you will select a model, and any structural upgrades, based on availability. Our Sales Representatives will take this information to produce an Agreement of Purchase and Sale (APS) for you to sign.
