So you are convinced it is a Good Idea to Buy a Home That Was a Former Grow Op? Are you considering buying a property that was a former Marijuana grow operation or meth lab?  I'm far from an expert on the subject, although Chilliwack has more than its fair share of former Grow-Op Homes.  Perhaps speaking to a Home Inspector might provide some critical information, however I can speak on it from the perspective of a Realtor.                                                         There used to be a time when this problem was the domain of derelict old homes in run down neighbourhoods.  Unfortunately, not any more - if anything it is just as likely to be in a posh family oriented neighbourhood or a brand new development.  As a matter of fact its become quite a popular method of paying do...

Your house hasn't sold?  Its been 3, 6, 12 months?  You're shaking your head and wondering why?  Well here are the straight goods........Look at the list and check it twice! :-) First of all lets see why other similar properties sold and yours didn't: 1.) They made sure their property was priced correctly right from the very beginning. 2.) They made showings easy - and left the home during showings so the Buyers could explore comfortably. 3.)

They were more aware of m...

You've sold your home - You know what the sale price is and what the Real Estate commission is, but what other costs will affect your bottom line?  Know you additional costs so that you are not surprised when you arrive at the Lawyers to go over your Statement of Adjustments.  People are often shocked and not usually because there is MORE money there then they thought!                                                                         1. Property Transfer Tax: This tax is payable on the purchase of all real property in BC. The calculation is based on 1% of the purchase price up to $200,000 and 2% of any amount above $200,000.
