Skopik's Most Recent Acquisition
815 Brookdale 204 HWY
Amherst, a border town to New Brunswick, weathered through the bust and booms of the global market without much impact. The city's population has been on the rise since 2001, with several of the big box stores moving into the area. Brookdale is a little piece of the country, stretched out over a 1.5 acre parcel, only minutes from downtown Amherst.
This is a solid building which has been well maintained with several renovations and upgrades over the past few years. Some of the floors are the original hardwood, while others received a facelift with new laminate, the roof was re-shingled in 2007, and the furnace was replaced in 2004. This fourplex contains 4-two bedroom, 1 bathroom units, and is currently fully occupied. Work projects over the next 2 years include a new stairwell in the back for the upstairs tenants and the rewiring and consolidation of the electrical panels for increased safety and efficiency.
188 Shore Road
Shore Road has a remarkable amount of potential. This triplex is located on the outskirts of the Whitney Pier where it looks out over the Sydney inlet toward North Sydney, where the Nova Scotia government has allotted $25 million dollars toward a container ship port, which will bring more jobs to the area. Due to the collapse of the steel and coal mining industry in Sydney, housing prices plummeted until the federal and provincial governments stepped in to rebrand the area as a tourist hot spot, building a new cruise ship port and marina. Housing prices have started to rise but are far from their potential.
Shore Road was purchased for 88% of the asking price. All three bathrooms have been upgraded in the last 5 years, roof is 4 years old, a new back staircase was built in 2010, as well as many other upgrades. Current work projects to be completed over the next few years will be a replacement of the front veranda and the installation of double glazed windows.
