I have sold a property at 206 3400 Quadra ST in VICTORIA.
One of the most popular buildings on Quadra. This lovely 2BR, 2 BA condo is located on the cool north side of the building and has a walk score of 72! Lots of shopping close by and its on a bus route. Current owners have tastefully upgraded their home - the common wall between kitchen and dining/living has been opened up, new engineered flooring in LR, DR, halls and bedroom; new kitchen floor, and new paint throughout. The kitchen is very large and has space for a breakfast nook. The master bedroom has a terrific walk-through closet and 4 piece ensuite. The living room & dining room are entertainment sized with a cosy corner gas fireplace, plus a french door to a private deck. The ensuite laundry and storage are a bonus. Pets under 40 lbs!

I have sold a property at 3287 Alder ST in VICTORIA.
Great Revenue Property which grosses $2515 each and every month. Even better, move into the large 2 BR main floor suite and keep the remaining $1265 gross revenue to help with the mortgage. Can you think of a better way to get into the market? This 2330 sqft solid house sits on a large lot, backing onto Rutledge Park and is close to shopping (the new "Uptown" mall is just a short drive away) and schools. There are fruit trees galore and with the big sky above, this yard is ideally suited for a gardener. The house has thermal windows and fir floors just waiting to be liberated from under the carpet. All appliances are included and we will even throw in the lawn mower. The tenants are happy, the revenue is great, the house is solid - call me!
