In at #2 is a detached home on a sizable lot, with great mortgage helper potential, in the historic Sapperton area of New Westminster. The listing agent describes it as one of the most affordable homes in the neighbourhood. This home has two bedrooms upstairs, an open-plan living and dining room and a large sundeck. Downstairs that has a one-bedroom-and-den suite (two bedrooms if you forgo a dining room) that is ideal to rent out. The yard is fully fenced and pet friendly, and the home had a new roof in 2009.
