BC Box Property in Port Coquitlam with Tenanted Suite Just Steps from Westcoast Express!! Assigned

  • $1,099,000
  • 5 beds
  • 2 baths
  • 2338 sq ft sqft
This central Port Coquitlam property is close to downtown PoCo, schools, shopping, and is just a 650m walk to the Westcoast Express!! The property comes with a tenanted 1-bedroom suite, which is currently renting for $814/month, as well as a vacant, 4-bedroom unit that includes space on the main floor as well as the entire second floor. We see 2 fantastic opportunities with this property: either rent the vacant unit and hold as a 2-unit rental, or renovate the main, 4-bedroom unit and sell as a renovated home with a mortgage-helper suite. Nearby properties, including the nearly identical one next door, are selling for $1,260,000-$1,300,000, so don’t miss your opportunity with this fantastic property!!

We are selling our assignable purchase contract.

Closing is November 29th, 2021
*Please note: The Buyer will have 1 walkthrough after purchasing this property.*

**As per our APS, Buyer agrees to assume downstairs tenant and does not require vacant possession of downstairs suite on possession date. Seller agrees to provide the Buyer with a copy of the tenancy agreement within 5 business days.**

***Please note: The Seller is trying to evict the tenant. This was only a verbal mention to us. The tenant has already stated that they are looking to move out in the next few months, but has not found a place yet.***

Please note: The BC Assessment describes the property as being only a 1-storey with a basement level, however the “basement” is fully above grade. We believe more accurately that this is a 2-storey property with a first and second floor.
