Coastal Custom Homes is one of the first builders in the Comox Valley to include solar panels on one of their homes for sale. This company is ahead of the curve by providing innovative, creative, cost-effective solutions, incorporating leading-edge technologies according to the BC Energy Step Code. The solar panels are installed on the roof of this home and are designed to take advantage of the sun passing overhead. This energy system will provide ongoing cost savings throughout the life of this home as it will be generating its own electricity. Also, research has shown that a professional solar panel installation will increase the value of the home by 4-5%.
Homebuyers who are relocating to or within BC on Canada’s West Coast are more frequently looking to smaller communities on Vancouver Island, and real estate markets in towns like Ladysmith are seeing the benefits. In particular, active retirees make up a large portion of new residents in smaller Vancouver Island communities, and builders are building homes and communities designed to accommodate their wishes and also to take advantage of everything Island life has to offer.
Relocating from expensive cities such as Vancouver and Victoria to Ladysmith offers owners a break from both big-city life and big-city real estate prices. People are also moving from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario. These buyers tend to be active and want to live in Ladysmith to enjoy the warmer weather and outdoor lifestyle.
