It’s been some time since I have posted but I couldn’t resist writing about this house! So many buyers are looking for the perfect second home that they can dart off to on the weekends. I have been waiting for this foreclosure to surface on the market and all of a sudden it popped up this morning hotter than toast! The best part about this darling chalet is that it would make a GREAT rental property too! Why not supplement with some rentals and use that extra income to pay the utilities and POA dues for the year? A 2 bedroom, 2 bath house like this could rent for about $130 per night or $700/week.
Yes, you will need to put some work into it but this home is NOT a trainwreck in any way shape or form. The floors will need refinishing. The kitchen could use some love, including appliances and a facelift. Please note that I am not an inspector but you are allowed to have an inspection period while buying a foreclosure. An inspector will be able to tell you more about the house including info about the HVAC, electrical, plumbing, roof, and potential structural issues.
Why did I choose this house to blog about? I have been selling and renting here for years and know Big Canoe like the back of my hand. This home wears all four seasons well and has all the charm that a second home buyer/renter is looking for in a weekend retreat. The location is far enough away from the village to provide plenty of privacy, peace, and quiet. BUT the trip out the house from the village is not a treacherous one. The winding roads gently rock you into a the feeling that you are a million miles away. Sit out on the front deck at night and wish on the shooting stars. OR watch the snow fall in winter through the alpine style windows while sitting beside the fireplace. If you are willing to do a little work, you won’t regret snapping this home up for 145K. Enjoy the slide-show!
