Best of both worlds
To all my first time home buyers and downsizers out there, today, I want to share some ideas about how to make the most out of your home search. This condo is such a great home for so many reasons, and I help so many people that don’t realize all the benefits of owning their home versus renting here in Victoria. I want to help everyone understand that buying their family home can be a crucial shift in the financial status of your family over time. It can be daunting but it’s a way that you can make small deposits in your future: that monthly mortgage payment may feel like a drop in the bucket now but the results are drastically compounded over time.
A well planned first purchase can serve your family in so many different ways over the years.
It’s a solid Investment - Although real estate moves in cycles throughout modern history, home prices have always increased in Victoria and you can invest with as little as 5% down of your own money
You’re building equity. With each mortgage payment part of that payment goes to your principal and every time that mortgage shrinks your equity rises.
Even before that mortgage is paid off, purchasing that first home is going to give you a pride of ownership that you cannot get when renting. Paint the walls, make friends with neighbours, this is your home now and you get to do what you want.
This home has been well-maintained and is was built at a time when people wanted space and room to move and grow. You’ve got 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms
but you have it in almost 1300 square feet of space!. That’s the size of a lot of houses. This home is perfect if you’re moving out of your family home and ready to try out a condo, or if you can’t stand renting a tiny apartment with your growing family. This home satisfies so many different needs but I still haven’t talked about the best part, the awesome location!
OPEN HOUSE Sunday, June 9th 11 am - 12 pm
Easy to view. Call 250-940-4765 for an appointment.
