I have listed a new property at 537 WILLOW CREST.
Excellent west end starter! This upgraded end unit is a functional yet unique 3 level layout with tonnes of extra storage and no one above or below you. The entrance level features laminate flooring, a large closet, in-suite laundry with front load washer/dryer, under-stair storage, work room/shop complete with built-in storage shelves/cabinets, utilities and additional storage space. The 2nd level features an updated Ikea kitchen, newer appliances, quality laminate flooring throughout, dining and living room areas as well as sliding doors to the balcony. Upstairs boasts two good sized rooms, storage and a new bathroom complete with tile surround shower. Additional upgrades include PVC windows throughout, new front door, all flooring, mouldings/baseboards, switches/outlets, light fixtures and closets. Unit comes with 1 powered stall and option to rent additional stalls through the management company. Prime location close to parks, shopping, transit, library and YMCA. Amazing value!
Today’s Bank of Canada rate hold announcement marks almost four straight years that the key benchmark rate has remained unchanged, since September 8, 2010. Great news if you have a variable-rate mortgage or home equity line of credit; the prime rate stays at 3%.
The announcement noted that “the risks to the outlook for inflation remain roughly balanced, while the risks associated with household imbalances have not diminished.” With these considerations, the Bank is maintaining its monetary policy stimulus, and remains neutral with respect to the timing and direction of the next change.
The next rate-setting day is October 22nd.
