207-1549 Kitchener Street – Great value condo in Commercial Drive
With such little inventory in the condo market these days, it has become rare to see an entry level apartment listing that offers truly good value for the money. Enter suite 207-1549 Kitchener Street!
Our new ‘Dharma Digs’ 1 bedroom condo listing this week for $349,000.
Here are the attributes I see in this condo listing as a local Buyer’s Specialist Realtor:
- Location location location! – just 2 blocks to the heart of Commercial Drive & Little Italy, far enough away to feel quiet but a short stroll to market groceries, nightlife, and the best coffee in the city!
- Solid building – It has been well managed with many capital projects done.
- Space – the interior of the suite is well laid out with an open plan and big rooms
- Storage – suite boasts an in suite den or office & a huge kitchen pantry
- Outlook – this unit faces the beautiful craftsman character homes Commercial Drive is celebrated for
- Outdoor space – Big south-facing covered balcony is a serene place to enjoy the outlook
- Choice block – Quiet & tree-lined Kitchener Street
- Move in ready – updated in 2005
- Access – VCC, Emily Carr, Mount Pleasant, Grandview Park, Victoria Park, Britannia community center, Trout Lake community center, the skytrain, shopping, eateries, cafes, antiques, clothing, records, skate shops, groceries, banks, wine & beer stores, bars, concert halls, bakeries & Italian everything right around the corner
- Pets & rentals allowed
- Shared laundry in the building
As an Accredited First Time Home Buyer’s Specialist, I see this as a great place to call your first home. A nice blend of price – meets lifestyle – meets bright future. As part of “Generation Squeeze” I really value having a toehold in the city going forward, getting on the property ladder to build equity. Rents have climbed so high and rental stock is dishearteningly limited right now; so this is where buying something affordable, yet solid, is most crucial.
Come see me for a tour of 207-1549 Kitchener Street at my open houses this Friday October 14th 5-6pm & Sunday October 16th 1-3pm. Or call us for a private showing anytime!
