Condo and Townhouse Update for the Sunshine Coast September 2019

CONDO & TOWNHOUSE UPDATE

GIBSONS – Sunshine Coast for September

October 1, 2019

THE TIME IS NOW…. if you are considering a strata-type of home purchase on the Sunshine

Coast….and in particular Gibsons. There is an abundance of inventory ranging in size and price

for brand new or older mature complexes.

As of this date, there are 55 homes available, of which 18 are pre-construction purchases for

new developments:

  • Maplewood: will have 28 townhomes next to the Gibsons Community Centre.
  • The Halyard: will have12 new homes: nine 3-level view townhomes and three garden suites.
  • BIG NEWS this month! Touchstone at Gospel Rock will be releasing their Village Residences with 49 condos and townhomes for sale starting October 7. For priority selection and an exciting opportunity for the first 20 purchasers, please call me or go to their website TouchstoneGibsons.com and mention our team Coast Lifestyles Network. The estimated completion is in Summer 2022.
  • Eagleview Heights (87 units in total) has now sold out Phase 1.

The September stats for the Sunshine Coast Strata market indicate a 50% increase in the number of sales over the same month last year! Seven of those 12 sales were in Gibsons. The presently available inventory is spread among 25 different developments that are suitable to all groups of buyers: Families (near schools), Seniors (55+ complexes), and Investors (rentals allowed). In particular, First Time Home Buyers, as generally, these can be the most affordable type of properties to purchase.

Prices and size range from $279,000 to $1.5M and 660 to1,790 sq. ft., so there is a new home for one and all depending on your criteria. There are some differences in strata living compared to detached homes, but also many benefits. We 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.

As a Buyer’s Agent and the Sunshine Coast Strata Specialist, I am happy to guide and represent you in your search for a Sunshine Coast home. I work in all areas of the Coast, and I am familiar with most strata homes available in the Sechelt area, as well.

I invite you to call or email me anytime for a chat or if you have any Real Estate questions.
