Owners’ comments

Rare on the market, no comparable:

  • Triplex converted into duplex: the first 2 floors are a sort of cottage.
  • The duplex is facing the Préfontaine metro station. Access to the city center in 15 minutes by public transport, 10 minutes by car.
  • A very large fenced backyard, with mature trees, as well as 2 outdoor parking spaces. 

The Neighborhood

You are at the crossroads of 4 interesting neighborhoods: Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, Rosement, Le Plateau, and Ville-Marie. All these neighborhoods are a few minutes by car, by public transport, by bike or on foot.

The duplex is located in a hip district. Several condominium buildings have been built, and buildings continue to rise in the vicinity. 

Berri-UQAM is 10 minutes by subway, by car or bike. Getting to downtown (McGill) will take you 7 more minutes. Commuting to work by bicycle is done in 15-20 minutes if you work in downtown.

Several primary and secondary schools are in the vicinity. Cégep Maisonneuve is a 15-minute walk away.

You will have super easy access to Ontario Promenade, Maisonneuve Market, Plateau Mont-Royal and Promenade Masson, all almost equidistant from the duplex. For the grocery store, you have access to a Maxi and a Provigo, as well as an SAQ Sélection in Angus Shops. There is also a Canadian Tire in the area.

You will be 2 metro stations (Metro Pie-IX) or 11 minutes by bike, from the Olympic Park: swimming pool, sports activities and events, etc. Next to the park there is a cinéplex (Métro Viau). In the Olympic Park there is also the botanical garden, the insectarium, the biodome, and the new planetarium. And of course there is the parc maisonneuve one of the largest and most beautiful parks in Montreal. You can have a picnic with friends or family, a BBQ, go for a walk or a run, roller blade or bicycle, or just walk around. In the winter you can go skating, sliding, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing. You will never get bored in the neighborhood.

The building

The duplex has undergone several renovations in the last 10 years. Front exterior aluminum staircase redone in 2008. The foundations were reinforced the same year by Bisson, and a moisture-proofing layer was installed in the crawl space. The latter is very clean and you can use it as a storage. 4 years ago, we installed a ventilation system that removes moisture by keeping it always at less than 50%.

Electricity and plumbing have been redone too.

Last year we re-painted the ground floor. We also re-enforced the backyard fence and installed a new exterior door that overlooks the parking space.

The apartment

The apartment is a 5 and 1/2 rented for 25 years to the same person. The tenant is a very kind person, she takes care of the small jobs in her apartment, and she never asks for anything. You can not come across a better tenant.

Remarks

The water heaters of the 2 dwellings will be changed at the expense of the seller before the sale.

The shed recently suffered damage due to the fall of a branch of an old tree. We will repair it before the sale. The tree in question (it was 80 years old) was cut this summer.

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!
