If you are thinking about a move on the Sunshine Coast and wondering about the timing for your purchase…..THE TIME IS NOW…. if you are considering a strata-type of home.
There has never been such an abundance of inventory in Gibsons ranging in size and price for brand new or older mature complexes.
As of this date, there are 60 homes available, of which 21 are pre-construction purchases for three new developments:
* Eagleview Heights….87 view condos & townhomes walkable to the main Gibsons mall;
* Maplewood…………..28 townhomes next to Brother’s Park & Gibsons Community Centre;
* Cote……………………4 luxury view townhomes overlooking Gibsons Marinas;
and the fourth and largest new development, Touchstone at Gospel Rock, will be releasing their Village residences (condos and townhomes) in September.
The Sunshine Coast market, in general, this year has seen a bit of a slowdown, with the result of an increase in inventory and competitive pricing. We are just now beginning to see increased activity with both local and off-Coast Buyers.
The available inventory is spread among 22 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 least expensive type of properties to purchase.
Prices and size range from $269,000 to $2.6 million and from 657 to 2,974 sq. ft., so there is a new home for one and all depending on your personal criteria.
There are some differences for strata living compared to detached homes, but also many benefits you might not be aware of. 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 all areas of the Coast and I am familiar with another 69 strata homes available in the Sechelt area as well.
