Turnkey Operations Bed and Breakfasts in Niagara on the LakeWith the change of bylaws and attitude at the Town level about renewal of Bed and Breakfasts, for the first time ever we are closer to be able to use the term turnkey when selling B&Bs in Niagara on the Lake.  Historically, the attitude at the Town was change of ownership – the property must meet all the bylaws again.  This was rather nerve racking on me – the realtor selling the property.  What happens if the house does not meet the bylaws of the day?  What would happen if I sold a property that could not get licensed?  In fact there was one property on the market for a number of years that I was just too nervous to sell due to the parking situation.Now the words coming from the office staff is that if a property has been licensed in the past year then it is considered a renewal, not a new license.  This changes everything!  Again this is only an attitude, no bylaw was changed but with this if a property has been licensed as a Bed and breakfast for the past ‘x’ number of years and the bylaws (not licensing requirements) have changed, and the property cannot meet them, no issues, the property is grandfathered in. Even if the property has not been licensed for 8 months (which happened to me this year) it is still considered an renewal.I have to say from an ownership/operator of a Bed and breakfast – no worries, from a Realtor perspective – a big YEAH.  I am more confident now than ever in selling an existing property.Not that you will see the term Turnkey operation on any of my listings because the license is NOT transferable, but it is a whole lot easier.

Date: November 28,2013 Vacation Rentals in Niagara on the Lake Here is Niagara on the Lake over the past 5 - 8 years there has been a boom in the number of vacation properties available.  The number has increased so fast that the town had to add bylaws to ensure that they were not becoming an issue for the residences.  When bylaws are introduced then normally neither side is happy and hence that happened here.

What is the difference between you and an ordinary Realtor?Brokering Bed and breakfasts is done differently than selling a typical home. First reason is that a buyer is purchasing a house, a business, and most important a lifestyle. There’s a lot more involved in assisting the buyer obtain the knowledge they need and feel comfortable with the running of a bed and breakfast.
