Owners’ comments

NEW PRICE!

Large duplexes with good incomes located in the Murdock district, close to UQAC, CEGEP, and all services (such as grocery stores, hospital, pharmacies, RBC ATM, convenience stores, restaurants, schools, and certain leisure activities such as the walking path). 
Part of the first floor (861 Murdock Street): large living room with cathedral ceiling, kitchen with cherry wood cabinets, large master bedroom (18' x 15') with two wardrobes, and three other bedrooms. 
 In the basement (771 rue Grandin): salon/dining room, kitchen, and four rooms for rental to students, allowing an increase in its profitability.  
The duplexes present several possibilities and considerable potential: 
- Owner occupying the first floor with excellent income in the basement;
- Rental of a large accommodation (6 ½) on the first floor, and 4 bedrooms in the basement;
- Rental of 8 rooms on both floors with excellent rentability;
- Bi-generations
Currently, the first floor is rented for 6 ½ apartment with the lease (electricity not included). Plus 4 bedrooms for students in the basement. Quiet tenants taking care of the place.
Over the years, many renovations have been carried out: The two floors are completely separated (electricity, plumbing, heating system, etc.); the windows are changed. Water inlet, sewage drain, and drain around the house are redone.
Included all appliances and furniture in the basement.
Outside, four parking places are available, the shed is accessible for tenants. 
A good opportunity for owner-occupiers or investors, because the rents have good potential when compared with the current market.

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!
