In the charming municipality of Melbourne, is located a beautiful ancestral house, bright with lots of woodworkgiving it all its character.

The dining room has a beautiful built-in wooden cupboard, while the entrance hall houses a beautiful wooden staircase to upstairs. In the middle of the double room, living/dining room, sits a slow-burning fireplace offering comfort and happiness to the occupants.

The front view of the house overlooks the Saint-François River, while the backyard view overlooks a pretty hill.

Several works have been done over the past year, including a new electric panel and the conversion of heating for electric skirting boards. Half of the fenestration has been changed, a new 60-gallon hot water tank has been installed, as well as 2 maximums on the roof, for better ventilation. The bathroom on the floor has been completely renovated. The garage, annexed to the house, was isolated and converted to add some rooms to the house. This appendix is ideal, among other things, for work at home.

The whole is located close to services, and near Highway 55. Just 30 minutes from the city of Sherbrooke and Drummondville.

A visit is worth it, a love at first sight for lovers of old houses.

The countryside in town!

Did you know?

Whether you purchase a property from a homeowner or from a broker, the steps involved and the legal implications are the same. You’ll see that buying without an intermediary has many advantages!

Can I afford to buy this property?

Prior to visiting a property, you should verify whether you have the means to purchase it by meeting with a financial advisor. Don’t forget, you must have enough money to cover both a down payment and the expenses related to the transaction (notary, property transfer duties, etc.).

Is this property right for me?

Consult the listing to determine whether the property features meet your needs. If necessary, communicate with the homeowner to obtain additional information. You may then make an appointment with the homeowner for a visit and prepare a list of questions to ask him.

Do I need to conduct a property inspection?

Verifying the condition of the property prior to purchasing it is a good precaution to take. In order to do so, you can hire a home inspector. He will intervene at a later date. Be prepared to add the inspection conditions to the offer to purchase.

How much should I offer?

Easily familiarize yourself with the market by visiting DuProprio.com and by verifying the price that comparable properties in the area have sold for. You’ll get a better idea of how much you should offer. You can also hire a licensed appraiser.

How do I proceed with an offer to purchase?

Have a discussion with the homeowner in order to come to an agreement on the price, the conditions of the sale and the possession date. You can then complete the offer to purchase form.

Thanks to DuProprio, the seller benefits from a legal assistance service and can ask their legal questions in order to properly complete the document.

The sale will be sealed with a notary, but until then, nothing prevents you from consulting a notary to write-up an offer to purchase. Once the deed of sale is drafted, you will be the new homeowner!
