With housing prices continuing to climb out of reach of homeowners in major urban centres like Vancouver and Toronto, smaller communities across the country and especially on Vancouver Island are seeing boomers, retirees and also young families relocating to realize their dreams of owning a home.
They are also seeking a place where year-round outdoor activities including beach walks, golf, hiking, skiing, water sports, and fishing can all be enjoyed as part of living in a vibrant community. The new residential community The Ridge in the Comox Valley offers all of this and more.
“People want a back yard, a driveway and a stand-alone home so they can have the space for their families,” Christopher Alexander, regional director at ReMax Canada told the Canadian Press. Smaller cities mean shorter commutes and more space, and still offer plenty of amenities. The Ridge is located in the city of Courtenay, close to shopping, schools, and recreation.
Is it time to leave your big city condo behind and swap it for your custom built home with a view? Imagine looking out at the Comox Marina and the Coastal Mountain range to the east, watching the sun rise from your new home, or sitting on your back deck, watching the sun set behind the Comox Glacier.
