April 1, 2014 (or perhaps a few days sooner) we will have a 2-bedroom vacancy (rent and deposit are $960.)
We are Terry and Betty, retired professionals and we live in and own a very clean and quiet 18-suite adult (30 +) apartment building. But before you read further, all suites and property are rented as non-smoking and to non-smokers. Sorry, neither pets nor parties are permitted. We have two extra security features which we disclose during your viewing.
This 770 sq. ft. corner suite is recently renovated, on the top or third floor (only 1˝ levels up from the entrance) and faces south and east. The suite has a 4’ X 13’ balcony with new double-insulated patio doors, new patio surfacing and new glass railings as of September 2013. The suite has very large windows and modern vertical blinds. It will show like a new condo but without the on-suite washer & dryer and covered parking (comparable condo rentals run $1,200 to $1,300).
The appliances are newer and modern: fridge, range, dishwasher and air conditioner. All electrical fixtures have been upgraded: ceiling lights, kitchen fan, wall plug-ins, light switches, wall thermometer, intercom and smoke detector. All plumbing has been replaced with modern single Moen taps and the heating system upgraded. The kitchen cupboards are all renovated.
The bathroom has been totally renovated to include modern lighting and a medicine cabinet as well as an over-john for those with lots of personal hygiene products. There is a newer 6-litre toilet, bathtub and tub-surround, sink, taps and flooring. Even the bathroom door has new hardware including stainless steel door hinges.
There is a large walk-in storage closet storage off the entrance and living room. The carpets are good quality Burber. There is an outside parking stall with power for one vehicle.
The upgraded laundry room on the lower level has 2 washers and 2 dryers and they are $2 per load. As well, the boiler and water heater were upgraded and are in excellent condition. Heat, water and garbage removal are included in the rent. Tenants pay for power (electricity, about $50 / mo.) and usually select either Shaw Cable or Telus for TV and internet services. We are centrally located, just far enough from the city downtown to be quiet, and yet have great access to major routes in all directions.
This suite will be limited to only 1 adult (sorry, no exceptions) who wishes to live in harmony with other nice adults. The damage deposit is the same as the rent except perhaps for the RCMP. Our initial lease is a 6-month, fixed term lease but thereafter it is monthly. The rent and security deposit are both $960 with $500 required with your application and the balance upon occupancy. “Thank you” for your interest and visiting our website.
