About Me

Landlord: Born and raised in Vancouver. CBC first generation (I hope you know what that means).

Not sure how the pronoun thing is supposed to work but I am straight and I identify myself as a male. I work at a food manufacturing plant full time with some side hustles on the side. Gotta make that $$$.

My late mother left the house to my sister and I. My sister did not want the house so I bought her out with a 500k+ mortgage. Now I am looking for tenants to help cover the mortgage so I can focus on other things. Everybody knows how expensive houses are in Vancouver. Cash poor, house rich lol.

Hobbies: Piano, boxing, reading, watching movies, hiking, etc.

What I am bad at: Skiing (can’t stop no matter how hard I try), parallel parking (I am better at stall parking though), going up steps (Grouse Grind and the Chief killed me), understanding women (they can be so complex!)

Dislikes: Durian (yuck), stinky tofu (yuck), blue cheese (yuck)

Likes: Money (duh), dogs, my overpriced house/land

So far I have had 5 different lodgers. All females because they prefer to have other female roommates. Working out pretty well. Refer to their hand written references in the pictures.

Minju (lodger/roommate):

32 years old. From South Korea. Did her masters in the UK.

She is doing her PHD here at SFU. Topic is under physiotherapy or something like that. Basically we both do active exercises.

She has a dog of the breed, Korean Jindo (see picture).

She cook good food. Or at least I think her food taste good.

Available Room for Rent

Looking for Tenants/roommates.

I own the house. I am looking for lodgers/roommates to rent my master bedroom+bathroom.

Since I live there too, I would be the live in landlord/roommate.

The house is a duplex. Street parking is available.

First floor: One kitchen, one living room, laundry room, and bathroom.

Second floor: Three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

All bedrooms have a full bathroom to go with them (3 for 3). I have my own bedroom and my own bathroom.

Master bedroom bathroom has a tub. The other two bathrooms have shower stalls.

The bedroom for rent in this listing is the master bedroom for 1350/month. It is about 231 ft squared including the bathroom.

Utilities included (hydro, natural gas, internet).

All bedroom doors have lockable key knobs. This bedroom has a bolt lock.

Small backyard. Property is fenced.

First floor is about 745 feet squared. 606 feet squared for second floor. Including the backyard, shed, and garage, the total should be about 1400 feet squared.

The bedroom and ensuite bathroom for rent are semi furnished. Previous person left behind her shower curtains and dresser (see pictures). I am leaving it semi-furnished because I feel it is better to have the roommate/lodger furnish it themselves (I am not good at interior design). Especially if it is for long term agreement, which is what I prefer. You will probably want to order a bed frame, mattress, and desk.

The rest of the house is furnished.

Neighbour’s duplex house is connected to my west wall. Entrance is on north wall. Patio door on east wall. South wall is an alley way where my neighbour walks through to get to their garage.

Located in Hastings Sunrise, East Vancouver near East 1st Avenue and Nanaimo Street.

Nanaimo Skytrain Station: ~10 minutes bus Downtown: ~26 minutes bus Metrotown: ~27 minutes bus SFU: ~40 minutes walk and bus BCIT: ~36 minutes bus PNE: ~11 minutes bus T&T: ~16 minutes walk Safeway: ~16 minutes bus Superstore: ~24 minutes walk and bus No Frills: ~13 minutes bus 7-Eleven: ~7 minutes walk Clinton Park: ~7 minutes walk Trout Lake Park: ~12 minutes bus East Hastings Street (restaurants, public library, and stores): ~15 minutes walk Chevron and Petro Canada Gas Stations: ~8 minutes walk Burnaby Hospital: ~11 minutes drive

The Trans Canada Highway and Iron Workers Memorial Bridge are also nearby.

Open to month to month or by term, but really, longer the better.

I am also open to purchasing any furnishings left behind by roommates/lodgers, depending on their condition, design, and pricing.

Feel free to message me for more details.

If interested, I plan, in order to: 1. Chat a bit. 2. Do screening questions. 3. Do video call for a virtual tour of my property or arrange for a live tour. 4. Show and go over agreement papers. Make any changes if necessary to meet what the lodger(s) thinks is more fair. 5. Sign papers and receive deposit to “reserve” the room. 6. Lodger moves in on agreed upon date. I will help with the building/moving of furniture if necessary.

Thank you for reading.
