Muskoka Meets Barrie

Unique home well constructed and good value.

It’s not very often that a home like this one comes along, in fact in our Real Estate career we haven’t ever seen one quite like it. The builder built the home for his own family and unfortunately a change in circumstances means you can now take advantage of this lovely home.  Built with ICF foundation, in floor heating in the basement, natural stone fireplace, granite kitchen, and the most amazing wood floors you are likely to see anywhere. With real estate one of the key questions is ‘location’, and in this case it doesn’t come much better at this price point. Across from Lake Simcoe and with deeded lake access this home is in an area of lakefront homes with many $1mil + homes across the road.

Huge 2 storey executive Barrie home for sale

We are delighted to present for sale a large executive style home in a popular south east sub division of Barrie. This home has been measured by us at over 3200 sqft above grade with the potential to add further space by finishing the walk out basement. It does require some TLC with probably new carpets or hardwood flooring. The home consists of 4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms and one 2 piece bathroom, family room, living room, dining room and an office. The rear yard faces south and because the home is slightly raised to the land behind it takes full advantage of the sun. Similar models to this one have sold along the same street for $30k or so more so there is potential to bring your own design talents and create value. The Barrie real estate market is very busy right now so don’t delay. If you would like to book a showing on this home call us asap.

Why don’t the banks just lend against Barrie investment real estate?

When you are looking for Barrie real estate for investment purposes, and you are having trouble borrowing money from the bank or other financial institutions, you may have to consider other options. For some, these options might include not getting their ideal house or investment property. For others, they may contact a private lender. Should the lender feel interested and believe that the venture is relatively safe, they may lend you the money. Why might the bank not lend you money, even if the investment is sound? Well it comes down to two main factors; INvesting in Real Estate

1. Traditional high street banks count ‘doors’. A door is literally how many units plus how many single family homes do you own, so if you owned a single family home that you didn’t occupy yourself and a 4 plex multi residential building that counts as a total of 5 doors (a 4 plex counts as 4 doors + the single family home). Most banks have a limit on how many doors they will lend you personally and that number can range between 5-10 for most of the major lenders. Irrespective of your own personal credit, hit the magical number of 10 and you may run into a road block. It’s possible that by gong to the commercial side of the bank that you may be able to work out some deal but if that fails then read on!
