Carriage/Laneway Houses

Are you looking for a mortgage helper but can’t possibly fit a basement suite in your current home? Perhaps you’d like a place for friends and family to stay but don’t want them right in your house. Space permitting, a detached carriage or laneway home in Victoria BC could be your perfect solution. You might be looking to increase the value of your property, and have heard a carriage home is a good idea. It is! You want to invest in real estate but don’t want the hassle and large expense of buying a second property, why not invest in your own property? Once added, did you know that property values tend to increase well above the cost of the carriage home? There’s no doubt that a carriage house in Victoria is a great investment, but only if it’s done properly. If not, your investment may turn into a liability.

There are many things to consider before you begin. Zoning and permits are a big consideration and there’s no getting around it. Don’t skip this step, you will regret it.
