Time for Another Bang for Your Buck

This time we will look at the price range $400 to $600 and attempt to show you both ends of the spectrum that is currently available and what we consider to be the “Best Bang for the Buck.”

Again we have opened our search up to the entire Greater Victoria and have placed no restrictions on our search other than the homes being Single Family Detached.

The most affordable home today in the bracket is 3217 Mallow Crt, in Langford. This is a new home, never before occupied and it offers 1034 sq. ft. finished with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths and a single car garage, all for $407,900.

Just to wet your whistle, it comes with real wood cabinets, granite counters, Travertine tile and if you make a deal today you get to choose the colours.

A close second, and the one that we feel offers the “Biggest Bang for your Buck”, is 959 Walfred Rd., also in Langford. At $409,900 you get 1412 sq. ft. finished, 3 bedrooms and 3 baths in once again a new home, never previously occupied.

It comes with a stainless steel appliance package, granite counters, fir front door, breakfast bar, tile floors, all window coverings, a single car garage with automatic opener and a fully fence yard. The master comes with a walk-in closet and a “luxurious ensuite bath”.

Now if you are wondering what the top end of this bracket will bring you, here it is.

For $600,000 you can buy 892 Paconla Plc., in Brentwood, Central Saanich on a quiet cul de sac. This home was built in 1989 and offers 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, 2181 sq. ft. finished.

The seller is not offering you any of the appliances but I am certain they will be negotiable. If you need a larger garage then this is the route to go as it comes with a double.

When considering the different values, a lot of it is the district in which the home is located.
