Another New Listing

Ok, so I haven’t been blogging too much about our new listings but since I have been on the internet band wagon, I thought I should.  So you will see a few posts about our guelph real estate listings.  The first is the most recent: 45 Moss place.

45 Moss Place is a fantastic opportunity to own a well kept investment property or starter home.  The current owner is not a renter and has put a lot of love into the upkeep and maintenance of this property.  This home is ideal for a young couple looking to start out and not break the bank on a home. Townhouses are selling for more than this plus additional condo fees, making this detached home a bargain.

New flooring has been put in all through the home, starting with the ceramic entrance way.  The hardwood laminate flows nicely into the living room area, and transitions back into a large tiled ceramic in the kitchen.  Upstairs you will find new neutral coloured carpet.

The backyard is large and the green grass is very desirable for your family activities.  Being completely fenced for your beloved pets and young children.  The house is also located on the curve of the street which makes the yard a pie shape for more room.

In the basement you will find a finished rec room that is also suitable for a 4th bedroom.  The rough in for the extra bath is conveniently located for a quick and painless new bath room installation.  The laundry area is large and exceptionally clean.

Guelph University Housing and Investment Property

Every year starting in January there is a sudden demand for student housing in Guelph Ontario.  This when students know that they have to start looking for the best accommodations for the following school year. Although this annual ritual may seem strange to the average citizen who assumes that August is when most students should be looking for a place to call home for the semester starting in September, it is not strange to the average student.

Many first year students were stuck single handedly trying to find mediocre accommodation the previous semester, and many settled for student residence with high costs and a lot of chaos! They are determined to avoid this mistake for the second year.  After all they are now veterans and are no longer timid, new freshmen.  They now know the ropes, and the secrets of university life, in addition have aquired a group of friends who all experienced the same crappy living arrangements.  They now, together, hand in hand, flood the Guelph real estate rental market ready to snatch up the best and most affordable living space! they will beat out the unaware new freshmen, many whom in January do not even know what university they will attend never mind where they will live!! Survival of the fittest in action.

So why am I concerned with this annual migration? Quite simple actually!  I am a real estate agent in Guelph, and work with investors who buy and sell rental properties, where these students will live.  I also have the honour of meeting these young aspiring university graduates in my quest to fill the properties I have sold to landlords.

On January first I will set out with the handfull of current clients to buy townhouses, detached houses, or condos, with the intention of providing a place for students to live.  These are the best type of investments in my opinion.  The reason is because students will always be there, I know they will pay the rent, if there are 4 students in a property, there are 4 sources of income, mommy and daddy usually foot the bill, and I know that if there is a problem they will leave.

How can you profit from student rentals? Look for information in my next post, I will tell you!
