Serious investors - you should be looking at this: 2 year old apartment building with 45 units only a few minutes walk to downtown Nanaimo. Great ocean views from all units on the North, South and East sides of the building. Features include ample parking, great tenants (fully rented), laundry facilities, an office manager's office, storage, and great visibility from a major road. Owner would look at partially carrying financing on the building, or partial trade for revenue or development properties on Vancouver Island or in areas of the Lower Mainland. It is rare to find an almost-new apartment building for sale - the advantage for an investor is that there will be very little building maintenance for years to come. Possible to stratify this building in future if desired. Full information package available after March 10th. Viewings can be arranged with minimum 72 hours notice. Call or email today!
