Owners’ comments

This chalet is located in Laterrière, 15 minutes from Chicoutimi and La Baie, two major cities of Saguenay. This proximity is a definite advantage for the new owners, since they have direct access to a flourishing nature while quickly benefiting from all the services offered by a large city: pharmacy, shopping center, garage, golf club, hardware store, ski resort, gas station, restaurant, primary and secondary schools, medical center, airport, highway, outdoor center, vegetable kiosks on the farm in summer, day camps for children, daycare, grocery store, etc. 

 

This chalet occupies the land of a former family estate which has delighted many families. It is surrounded by six other chalets inhabited year round or which serve as second homes for summer vacations. 

 

In 2014, the chalet was almost completely renovated and decoration work were made. Charming, comfortable with a small solarium, year-round habitable, no neighbors behind or ahead, privacy and tranquility await you. A small terrace, a grassy area fitted out for making fires or gardening are other assets that you can enjoy. In winter, the chalet is comfortable, the fireplace warms and illuminates hearts and evenings. The road is passable and the snowmobile, ski and snowshoe trails are not too far. 

 

The Girard Lake property comes with lake access and a dock shared between six owners for swimming and fishing. You should know that this lake is nourished by underground sources which give it unparalleled clarity. 

 

In the heart of a city forest, the song of frogs, starry skies, campfires, canoe or pedal boat rides, swimming, fishing, nature walks, meeting with small wild animals at dawn, all this could become your daily life in this little corner of paradise that is Lake Girard. A multitude of wild berries are also at your fingertips. 

 

On the outskirts of Lake Girard, municipal services are available at the end of the road and the town of Laterrière takes care of the maintenance and snow removal of the main road. An association of owners, of which you will be a part, meets each year to look after other maintenance needs, safety, the environment and the well-being of all. The lake is also stocked thanks to the good care of the association.

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!
