Hundreds of properties in Quebec change hands every day, most of them without us knowing the exact details. That was before we became interested… Here are the latest transactions that caught our attention.
A property in Blainville's affluent Fontainebleau neighborhood, which is home to a golf course, has just found a buyer for $3.1 million.
The two-story residence at 18 Rue de Chinon has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a powder room, a solarium, red pine floors and a four-car garage.

This residence, which also hides a wine cellar and a small cinema room, offers a living area of 637 square meters and is set on a landscaped plot with an in-ground swimming pool of 1466 m2.
Seller-Owners Guylain Briand and Isabelle Rivest purchased this property from Carl Lefebvre in July 2021 for an amount of $1,875,000. A few months later, the new owners put it up for sale again.
In October 2022, the home was listed at $3,498,000, almost double the price paid. Fifteen months later, on January 17, the company finally found a buyer for $3.1 million, or 11.4% below the asking price.
In the most recent three-year municipal assessment roll, this residence was assigned a value of $1,567,600, an increase of only 4.5% compared to its previous value of $1,500,000.
In 2024, the municipal taxes on this home will be $11,068. For buyers, a transfer tax of $79,983 will be added to the purchase price, also payable to the City of Blainville.
