Located in the safe protected harbour in Brentwood Bay, Anglers Anchorage Marina has been a favourite marina for boaters for decades. The marina has expanded and updated over the last few years with over $1.8 million being spent on upgrades. The work undertaken included new and rebuilt docks, new deck coverings and more. The electrical service was upgraded to allow individual metering to each berth, along with water and sewer hook-ups. There was a new marina services building constructed for the marina manager and it also has washrooms with showers and laundry facilities. The marina and the docks provide a very steady and increasing source of revenue. In addition there is revenue from a well known local restaurant, Blue Bayou Cafe which has been leasing space since 1999. The property consists of the foreshore lease of approximately 5 acres with 5,000+- lineal feet of moorage space within the lease area. A new 30 year extension was granted in 2009. The upland portion consists of two properties. The first is lot 1 which is .75 acres and is the parking area for the marina and currently has parking for 85+- cars. There is also development potential for part of this property through rezoning. Additionally there is a second parcel, lot 13, the portion of the Anglers Anchorage Marina site between Marchant Road and Grilse Lane (922 Grilse Lane) which is designated commercial, is used only for the purposes of access to the balance of the marina site south of Grilse Lane, and for landscaping. This lot use could change upon rezoning and a change in the OCP and would be ideal for more parking or?? There is much to like about this property including the steady income and the increases along with it, the possibility for some residential component above the parking lot and more. Much of the hard work has been done with the renovations and replacements, the individual billing for utilities and lease renegotiations. There is a manager in place if you wish to have a passive investment or it is something you can also manage on your own.


Just reduced by $64K. Immaculate 1216 sq ft home on .96 acre property is priced to allow buyer to budget for upgrades, renovations or addition if desired. Includes garage/workshop/guest accommodations, with attached RV carport. Property is very private & partially fenced, with lovely lo-care landscaping. Garry Oak meadow & Arbutus grove on lower oceanfront level. All services available including municipal water & sewer. Located on quiet cul-de-sac. Home is move-in ready.

CHATTELS AND FIXTURES: PUT IT IN WRITING BEFORE YOU SELL you are thinking of selling your home, have you much thought to what you plan to leave with Ithefgiven home and what you would like to take with you,

Other items to consider are lawn ornaments, smoke alarms, and built-in vacuum cleaners. These types of items are generally left with the home, but some people still like to take things with them. If you tend to be one of these people, clearly state in writing what WILL NOT be included in the sale. Most buyers would assume that these types of fixtures will be included in the sale unless you specify the contrary in the listing. It is absolutely necessary that you set out these stipulations in the contract of purchase and sale.

such as the washer and dryer, the fridge and stove, or even that heirloom chandelier in the dining room? While these may not seem like important concerns right now, your failure to address them in your listing and the contract of purchase and sale could lead to a major misunderstanding with a potential buyer. The last thing you would want is the loss of a sale of your home due to a dispute or misunderstanding over a relatively minor item. A REALTOR will guide you through the listing process and will ask you what you want to include in the sale. It is a good idea, however, to make up a list before meeting with your REALTOR to ensure you do not forget something.

CHATTELS ARE NORMALLY REMOVED When chattels are included in the agreement, they must be listed in the contract of purchase and sale. It is fairly common practice for sellers to include items, which would normally be considered as chattels, such as appliances and window coverings, in the selling price.


FIXTURES NORMALLY STAY A REALTOR will explain that fixtures are permanent improvements to a property which normally stay with the property as part of the sale. For example, if you have upgraded your wiring or heating system, these are considered to be permanent fixtures. Keep in mind, however, that the law is not always crystal clear about what constitutes a fixture. There are circumstances where you may plan to remove something that might ordinarily be considered a fixture — like your chandelier.

If there is any doubt about a particular item, your REALTOR will include it in the list of items to be included or excluded from the purchase price. That way, if there is any question, the situation has already been addressed. If you have any concerns, talk to your REALTOR. As a trained professional, he or she will be able to guide you smoothly through the selling process and answer any questions you may have.
