We plan to sell our 3-level, nearly 2,200 sf townhouse, located a block from the ocean and Government Wharf in a quiet area of beautiful Sooke, BC (see www.ServingSooke.com) and about 2 minutes from the town centre, this spring. Built in 2008, it has 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and rec room, with 9’ ceilings on the first 2 levels. Comprehensive strata fees are just $286. Conservative selling price is $425,000 reflecting a need for update to the original flooring and paint. Realtor pricing estimates are closer to $450,000 (and rising).
We want to build or buy a similarly spacious home in the Creston area, either on a large lot in a modern neighbourhood or on serviceable acreage within 30 minutes of town. As to value, we’re targeting $50-60,000 for a serviced lot or $100,000 for a small acreage, and up to $420,000 for an existing modern home over 2,200 finished sf (or 3,000 finished sf with a usable suite).
We’re also looking for a qualified builder, should the lot option be chosen (everyone sounds pretty busy this year).
We are already monitoring the few MLS listings through our realtor at Creston Valley Realty. Being on a fairly tight budget we’re also hoping for a heads-up on a suitable opportunity that isn’t on MLS (where it would get many thousands of dollars in commission factored in). We're also checking PropertyGuys so don't need duplicate referrals from them.
If you are aware of a legitimate property meeting any of the criteria above (or you are the owner of such a property) please contact us asap. If you are the first recommendation, we will confirm that. In the event that your advice leads to a sale, we will pay you $2,000 cash (no tax) in appreciation of your help.
We will not be sharing any information provided with realtors…that is the decision of the owner alone.
Furthermore, if you are the owner of a suitable home coincidentally interested in exchanging the Kootenays for our home next to the Pacific Ocean, please contact us for more information. If we can arrange a trade (up or down in value), not only will you get the $2,000 incentive from the deal, but we will also provide a free truck-load transferring most of your belongings to secure storage in Sooke – saving you time and thousands of dollars in moving charges. This could all happen as early as the second week of April, 2020 (when we plan to bring our first load over in a 26’ truck).
