Owners’ comments

After 12 years of tremendous enjoyment we are selling our family home!  

It's one of those rare houses that immediately feels good and right when you walk through the front door. Its very unique to the neighbourhood and is kind of a grand old dame.  When we bought, we were told that it was built by the Editor of Le Droit and you can feel the pride that went into it.  The house was built in 1949 and still has all the original moldings, high ceilings and an extra large living room and master bedroom. The house is surrounded by large mature trees. Here you can live centrally and still have lots of green space and privacy.


Some details

Located a 5 minute drive from downtown Ottawa (you can see Parliament Hill from the upstairs balcony) and walking distance from all services, this home is adjacent to Parc Larocque and one block from the business district of St. Joseph Boulevard. The park has a supervised inground pool in summer, basketball court, four tennis courts, a playground and a hockey rink in winter. We are located a 10 minute walk from the Gatineau Park, and the extensive bike trail network of the National Capital Region.

The house is relatively large for the neighborhood with three bedrooms on the top floor and a fourth in the finished basement, as well as 2.5 bathrooms. Recent upgrades include finished basement, a gorgeous new kitchen, new windows and doors, UV sauna, gas fireplace and a top-of-the-line heat pump (heats up to -30 Celsius).

The large, fenced backyard has mature trees and gardens and is a quiet oasis from the city.  It is not necessary to own a car, because in addition to being walking distance from all services, and being a block from public transit, there are also two Communauto cars parked in front of the house for ride-sharing. 

Inclusions:

UV sauna, washer and dryer, gas fireplace, all light fixtures.

The steps involved in buying a property

Could this property be “the one”? Here’s an overview of the steps involved in becoming the owner. These steps and the legal implications remain the same whether the property is purchased from an individual or through a broker.

1
Financing

One of the first things to do when looking for a property is to get a mortgage preapproval from a financial institution. The goal is to determine borrowing capacity, and as a result, the price range to be looking in.

2
Offer to purchase

The property suits the budget and needs? Time to submit an offer to purchase! This document sets out the price, the elements included in the sale, the possession date, the conditions of purchase and all other information relevant to the sale.

3
Conditions of purchase

The offer to purchase generally includes conditions. The most common are the property passing an inspection, the buyer providing proof of financing and the buyer selling their own property. Once the listed conditions are met, the property is considered sold.

4
Property transfer

The last step is to see a notary, who is generally chosen by the buyer. This real estate professional drafts the deed of sale and ensures that the interests of all parties involved are respected.

Once the deed of sale is notarized, the new owner gets the keys to the home. All that’s left is to move in!
