Owners’ comments

Live on the lake and commute to work!

Just 35 minutes from downtown Ottawa when traffic is light, this cozy West Coast red cedar bungalow is situated on a beautiful, wooded one-acre lot with more than three hundred feet of waterfront on lovely Lac Rheaume. The floor to ceiling front windows looks onto a four hundred square foot deck that overlooks the lake. A fully screened porch on the West side of the house provides the opportunity for sheltered outdoor living during three seasons of the year.

Originally built in 1989 as a fully winterized family cottage, additional living space was created by finishing the basement in 2005 when it was converted to a year-round residence. With three bedrooms, living room, kitchen and bathroom on the main floor and a family room, office space, dining area, laundry room and utility closet in the basement this compact family home/cottage will comfortably accommodate the average-sized family.

The following renovations have been made in recent years:

  • new roof in 2008 with a thirty-year warranty;
  • new windows in all bedrooms and the bathroom in 2016 with a 10-year transferable warranty;
  • aluminum fascias, soffits, and guttering in 2017;
  • new hot water tank in 2016 with a nine-year warranty;
  • new septic pump in 2016;
  • a new water pump in the laundry room in 2015.

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!
