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.

B.C. Waterfront Property Picks | Hot Properties for January 2016


We hope you all had a great holiday!

As in past years, both traffic to, and inquiries through Waterfront West are buzzing again this January. With the distractions of December and the holidays over, we suspect that Waterfront West visitors must be motivated to find their waterfront dream homes or cottages before the arrival of summer weather.

We would like to thank all of our blog readers for your continued interest and we hope that we can help you find or sell your waterfront property in the future.


Now on to the order of the day:


Our staff and member agents have picked through the properties for sale on our site and given their 3 picks for "Hot Properties" this month.
