Congratulations to M and J on the purchase of your first house, 597 Walker Avenue!
Like many first young first time buyers, the question of condo unit vs house was discussed and entertained. After looking at several options, and even after writing an offer on a condo unit, the choice became clear to them that a house was the right direction for them.
This beautiful character two storey house in Fort Rouge was the ticket. It is full of charm and function and it’s in a location that makes sense on many levels. On a lighter side, who wouldn’t want to be walking distance to the BDI (Bridge Drive-In) ice creme shop?! It is close to rapid transit, The Village, Churchill Park, and downtown Winnipeg. This house has room to grow and a few upgrades can be made if they so choose. This house has the potential for a custom modern kitchen, and additional living space with a future finished basement with a full bathroom. Best part, it has good bones and it’s move in ready.
The inspector was able to show my buyers the specifics about the build of this house, the maintenance, and the expected life expectancy of all of the components. We had a fun time during this journey and I’m excited for the future of my clients. This is a big next step in their lives and I’m honoured that I could help them.
