Owners’ comments

The chalet is located on the edge of the beautiful Rivière à Mars (salmon river). The announcement of a bike path from La Baie to Le Bec-Scie was made on June 12, 2019 and will give access to the city in less than 6 km. The neighbourhood is very peaceful and the trail residents are respectful of others and help each other as needed.

The terrain is very large and certainly one of the most beautiful in the area of the Sentier des Éboulis! Edge spruce have been added for privacy.

The wooden beams on the ceiling of the chalet come from the former family barn and are more than 100 years old, which adds character to the chalet. A closed bedroom can accommodate a double bed and the living room has two sofa beds.

A large shed whose roof was redone in 2016 allows a lot of storage. A washer and dryer are included in the shed with an extra sink and a second toilet.

A citizens' water system from a heritage water source that is more than 100 years old feeds the cottage. Residents of the area put it in operation in mid-May and it is closed around the beginning of October. Water is not safe for drinking. However, on the property of the cottage, a well has already been in operation and could be reactivated if you want drinking water all year round. The property has two artisanal septic tanks (cottage and shed). They are not compliant, but we provided a sketch to the municipality (at their request) 10 years ago and we did not receive any information requiring us to modify the current skeptical facilities.

Finally, for fishing enthusiasts, pit #24 is nearby, but the use of this pit does not affect the privacy and tranquility of the site.

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!
