GIBSONS CONDO & TOWNHOUSE UPDATE for November 2019
Are you thinking about downsizing or perhaps reducing your mortgage burden? Consider 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 today, there are approximately 88 condos and townhomes available for sale, of which about 63 are preconstruction 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 3-garden suites.
* Touchstone at Gospel Rock: (not all on the MLS) On October 7 released their Village Residences with 49 condos and 22 townhomes for sale, and 40% are SOLD!
Please call me or go to their website TouchstoneGibsons.com and mention our team Coast Lifestyles Network. I can answer any detailed questions and represent you in a purchase. The estimated completion is in Summer 2022.
* Eagleview Heights: (87 units in total) has now sold out their Phase 1.
* Cote: will have 4-luxury view townhomes overlooking Gibsons Marina.
The November stats for the whole Sunshine Coast Strata market indicate a 54% increase in the number of sales from November last year. Five of those 12 sales (excluding Touchstone) were in Gibsons.
The presently available inventory is spread among 23 different developments that are suitable to these 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 $1,375,000 and from 660 to1,770 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 owning a detached home, and 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.
