In the charming municipality of Melbourne, is located a beautiful ancestral house, bright with lots of woodworkgiving it all its character.

The dining room has a stunning built-in wooden cabinet, while the entrance hall hosts a beautiful wooden staircase to the upper floor. In the middle of the double room, living/dining room, sits a slow-burning fireplace offering comfort and happiness to the occupants.

The front view of the house overlooks the St. Francis River, while the backyard view overlooks a pretty hill. The ideal place for gardeningenthusiasts.

Several works have been carried out during the past year, including a new electrical panel and the conversion of heating to electric skirting boards. Half of the fenestration was changed, a new 60-gallon hot water tank was installed and 2 maximums on the roof for better ventilation. The bathroom on the upper floor has been renovated. The garage, attached to the house, was insulated and converted to add some rooms to the house. This annex is ideal, among other things, for work at home.

The whole is located close to services, and near Highway 55. Only 30 minutes from the city of Sherbrooke and Drummondville.

A visit is worth it, guaranteed at first sight for lovers of old houses.

The countryside in town!

The steps involved in buying a property

Could this property be “the one”? Here’s an overview of the steps involved in becoming the owner. These steps and the legal implications remain the same whether the property is purchased from an individual or through a broker.

1
Financing

One of the first things to do when looking for a property is to get a mortgage preapproval from a financial institution. The goal is to determine borrowing capacity, and as a result, the price range to be looking in.

2
Offer to purchase

The property suits the budget and needs? Time to submit an offer to purchase! This document sets out the price, the elements included in the sale, the possession date, the conditions of purchase and all other information relevant to the sale.

3
Conditions of purchase

The offer to purchase generally includes conditions. The most common are the property passing an inspection, the buyer providing proof of financing and the buyer selling their own property. Once the listed conditions are met, the property is considered sold.

4
Property transfer

The last step is to see a notary, who is generally chosen by the buyer. This real estate professional drafts the deed of sale and ensures that the interests of all parties involved are respected.

Once the deed of sale is notarized, the new owner gets the keys to the home. All that’s left is to move in!
