Sunshine Coast Real Estate Market
The December stats for the whole Sunshine Coast Strata market indicate no change in the number of strata sales from the 7 reported last year (2019). Out of the 7 sales this year, 4 were in Gibsons, however, Touchstone sales are not all reported in the MLS stats.
Available inventory is spread among 23 different developments that are suitable to all groups of buyers: Families (near schools), Seniors (55+ complexes) and Investors (rentals allowed). In particular, for First Time Home Buyers, as generally, these can be the most affordable type of properties to purchase.
Price and size range from $279,000 to $1,375,000 and from 660 to 2,553 sq. ft., so there is a new home for one and all depending on your personal criteria.
There are some differences in strata living compared to detached homes, but also many benefits you might not be aware of. We presently have complexes that have as many as 69 homes and also duplexes that are side-by-side with no strata fees and a detached home feel.
