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 house or garden suite 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 or garden suite 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 or garden suite? There’s no doubt that a carriage home or garden suite in Victoria is a great investment, but only if it’s done properly. If not, your investment may turn into a liability.
