    I like the second one, but I've always been partial to ranch-style houses. :shrug: Besides, number three is too close to the street and the neighbors.

    I like it too, but there's some question about the well. It's not on city water and sewer.

    I like the 3rd one. and prolly way more bang for the buck if you're planning on fixingupping anyway. And a decent neighbourhood of young families I'd wager.

    For move-in-ness, I betcha the first is in the best condition. The first...what's to the right of it? Not a car lot or a store or something? Oh, and the pool isn't fenced. No good.

    My French is extremely rusty, so I didn't read any of it. I just looked at the pictures.

    I like the second one quite a bit. What's the lot size?

    Oh, no! Don't ask him that! He'll give you the 'meter' size, and make you convert. :eek:

    the second one is kinda like what we are looking for only with a porch.

    Damn those are cheap.


    #2 is nice but looks too desolate

    I also like the second one. And I echo IC's sentiment about how cheap those prices are. You can't even buy a condo around here for twice those prices, in US and not Canadian dollars. You might be able to buy a single-wide in a seniors' trailer park.

    Actually, privacy appeals to me a great deal.

    I like ranches for just that reason. Not that it' sa major thing now, but it won't be much longer and I know I won't want to be doing stairs. Also look for laundry upstairs, be nice to the wife.

    501' X 206' IRR. 124861 sq.ft

    And it's got a basement, with a finished family room, and workshop.

    Housing cost in the Mtl area is about as cheap as you'll find in a good economic region. A similar house in Ottawa (less than 2.5 hours west) are double. Toronto is even worse. But their taxes are lower, and base pay is higher. It all evens out.

    Almost 3 acres?! Jeebus, man, clarify that well situation.

    Specifically, it says that the septic system and well and "not conform". But the word they use for the septic system is a rather old and obscure one, which leads me to think cesspit, or holding tank. Unusual on that large a property. There's loads of room for a weeper field. And grouping the well and septic together makes me wonder is perhaps they're finding bacteria in the well.

    Well, just rung off with the agent. #2 is a public offer (probably up for taxes). The septic is something called a dry well. Apparently, it's a large open tank and it's just let to evaporate. Illegal to sell without installing a new system. That's the catch. But there's 2 offers on it already, and if the first isn't accepted, the second will be, so that's gone. #1 is vacant, already. Might go nosing this weekend.

    :hmm: How rude. It's not all that expensive to replace a septic system there, is it? How far down is the frost line? You could probably do it for about $7500 USD, and add that into the mortgage payment. :shrug:
