Why is 681 Moberly Such a Good Investment!

Space in abundance: just under  1400 sq.feet of living space is almost impossible to find in this part of Vancouver – but it’s here! Two double bedrooms, one single bedroom plus a spacious den off the master bedroom make this an ideal home for a young family who can also enjoy two patios (facing north and south), kitchen plus good sized dining area; large living room with gas fireplace; 1 full bathroom and 1 half bathroom combined with utility room; and heaps of storage space in the unit as well as in the basement.

Location: don’t they say in real estate “location, location, location!” Well this unit maxxes out on that score. First of all, you’d be living in one of the most sought after locations in one of the most livable cities of North America – the vibrant cosmopolitan City of Vancouver.

Better still, you’d be only a minute from the seawall that circles around False Creek and a leisurely stroll (20 mins max) to Granville Island,  with its market, resturants, galleries, coffee shops and educational facilities.

Vancouver’s new public transit system (the Canada Line)  is just two blocks away so no need to take the bus or taxi downtown or to the airport. You simply don’t need a car to enjoy this location but if you do have one, there’s secure parking below and access to Auto Rentals and ZipCar for those of you who think green.

Facilities & Amenities: Every facility you need to enjoy urban life is a few minutes walk away – a great range of shops at the foot of Cambie and Broadway (including Save On Food, Home Depot, Best Buy, Winners, Whole Foods); you’re no more than five blocks from Vancouver’s best hospital; and a bust stops outside your back door to link you with every other part of the city.  Just around the corner is a great choice of restaurants, pubs, coffee shops.

The Price is Right! The other reason I am really sad to part with what was to be retirement home  is the fact that I have just invested over $130,000 as my share of an extensive restoration. The scaffolding is down and it’s  like brand new – inside and out: new windows, stucco, walkways, fencing and roofing on the outside and freshly painted wall, new carpet and refinished hardwood floors on the inside.

I’m selling this home for $598,000 and that represents significantly less than what I paid for it in 2005 plus all the restoration expenses. Like many properties in the Creek, it’s leasehold with the City lease ending in 2036. Mortgages are available and there’s a list of brokers familiar with the property here.

Why This Price?
Work took me back to England and I can’t use two homes. My misfortune can be your good fortune. No hard feelings – life happens that way. The price is a fair one and reflects my desire to sell efficiently.
