It’s a double episode today because yesterday was full and Annette was not feeling well.
A couple of today’s homes look like deals until you see they have electric baseboard heating. Although there are some advantages, the consensus is generally that baseboard heating is more expensive to run than natural gas. Find out which homes in the episode.
And this week seems to be the week of lower priced detached homes. There’s another two-bedroom today for $450,000, and this one is not in the flood plain like Commercial. By the way, I just did some numbers on Commercial as an investment property, and you end up losing somewhere between $300-500/month with 20% downpayment.
Robson only gave themselves a couple of days to generate traffic, and I’ve mentioned my thoughts about holding back on offers previously… the magic formula is 4 to 6 days, preferably spanning one weekend.
Oh, and here are some sneak previews of homes we have coming out, including a townhouse with a clear view of the Escarpment in the front and greenspace in the back, plus a bungalow in the heart of downtown with a super rare walk-out basement and separate living space. There’s a home in Dorset Park on a big lot with a pool and a renovated kitchen and washroom, and a semi-detached with a finished basement backing onto greenspace.
If you’re interested in any of them, just send me a note.
