Owners’ comments

  • The house, at 15 Brown Road, is an orange-brick bungalow. This 1.1-acre property is set in a quiet rural area (Kirk's Ferry sector of Chelsea), surrounded by a variety of mostly deciduous trees such as maple, birch, hop hornbeam, ash, and elm. The front and side yards of the house are defined by stone retaining walls, separating the yards from the lane and parking area. A forested hill behind the house provides shade and privacy, at the same time serving as a windbreak. This is a great place to raise kids.
  • The focus of attention in the living room is a masterfully built pink-stone fireplace. The living room faces east, overlooking the sloped front yard, Brown Road, and the Gatineau River/Hills a few hundred meters away. Sunrises seen from the living room are wonderful. The poured-concrete basement is equipped with a stone fireplace nearly identical to the one in the living room.
  • Two bedrooms face the forested hill behind the house. The third room (which was our office) has a view of the front yard and the 270-sq. ft geodesic dome that we have used as a workshop and summer office.
  • Much of the front yard is a field with many wildflowers and shrubs (only a small portion is mowed), providing shelter for deer, which can be seen most days for much of the year, even in winter.
  • At the bottom of the lot, on Brown Road, detached from the house, is a single-vehicle garage with shelving for storage.
  • The geodesic dome, which has a small addition and cupola, was built in 2002-2003 by the owners.
  • The eastern boundary of the property, along Brown Road, is marked by a mature cedar hedge which provides excellent privacy and a nesting habitat for birds.

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!
