Buying a townhouse in Montreal is no mere achievement. It means having your place of residence in one of the most attractive and peaceful cities in the world. It also means that you must have some financial muscle to afford a decent property.
As such, you always want to make sure what you end up with is the real deal and that you won’t regret a thing after closing the transaction. In as much as there are a myriad of factors you need to consider, including consulting a professional real estate agent, here are some of the questions you must ask before you go ahead with the purchase-:
What is the privacy of the place like?
With a townhouse, you will have neighbors on either side of your house, but this should not compromise the privacy of the property to an extent that you will not have a good experience living there. Dig deep to find out about the privacy of the place and make sure that you can live with the current set up as far as privacy is concerned.
What is the insurance like?
You should know as much as you possibly can about the insurance situation in the area where you want to buy the townhouse. Consider the types of disastrous situations likely to occur in that area and if they are covered or if you will need to get a special cover for them. For example, if the area is prone to floods, will the insurance cover the damages should there be a flood?
How is the natural ambience?
When you are buying a townhouse in Montreal, you most likely want to live there for a number of years. It is unlike a rental, where you can pack up the second your lease is over. Consequently, you should think of the natural ambience and surroundings when buying a town house. It is important to think about the availability of outdoor spaces, a yard, a patio, natural light inside the property and if any views are being blocked by other structures.
