Attention Flippers! Oshawa is hot and houses in this price range are being bought up quickly.

How can you profit?
1) Buy for $389,900k, renovate nicely, then sell for over $500,000.
2) Rent as a single family home. Or put in a basement apartment... but it may be tough to legalize it.
3) Realtors bring your clients who want an affordable fixer upper.

Realtors, we know its tough out there right now to find houses for buyers. We'll work with you on our private assignment sales. You will need to increase the price to your clients. But your clients will thank you for finding them a good deal.
