BC Waterfront Blog

There are a lot of "how-to" articles online that regurgitate the same advice about real estate related topics such as getting a good mortgage or prepping your home for the market. While those things are obviously very important, in this blog we try to write articles that are enlightening and valuable for visitors to our site. Rather than write about the same-old, same-old, we endeavour to create interesting and compelling articles specifically for people interested in (BC) waterfront real estate.

Hot Picks: A Few to Properties Gander At

This week, I thought I'd make special mention of a few properties that caught my eye as I was going through the site. I see a lot of waterfront properties during the day (or photos of them anyways), so I thought I'd mention some that have attracted my interest in the last few weeks. Of course, I haven't seen these in person and don't offer any guarantees, but if you like what you see, they could be worth a gander.

The first property is a private sale on Nelson Island on the Sunshine Coast. It features 2.6 acre, sheltered deep water moorage and 26' oceanfront. There are two winterized cabins on the property. With prices what they are on the mainland of the Sunshine Coast, this might be a nice alternative for someone wanting a recreational getaway from Vancouver. 

Another property that shows promise is an inexpensively priced oceanfront lot on Pender Island. At only $339, 000 I was sure it would involve a lot of work to get sewer/water, etc... to the lot, but the ad states that water & sewer hookup, hyrdo and cable are at the lot line. 

Finally, if I could, I would snap the following property up myself. 47 acres 5 minutes from Port Alberni with 18 of those acres being rights to a lake. The lake is owned by only one other family (as I understand) and their home has been built on a hill so you are, effectively, the only one on the lake. I didn't think this was still possible anywhere near the south or central part of Vancouver Island but apparently it is! With homes on regular lots on nearby Sproat Lake going anywhere from $500, 000-$1, 500, 000 and up, this "Trophy" property looks like a great price at only $1, 500, 000 for the whole thing.
