This is part 2 in a 3 part series, where we talk about why you should sell your home in the overheated GVRD real estate market and move to The Cottages, for far less than your current home is worth.
For those looking for a hiatus from the chaos and stress of the city, a cottage home can provide the perfect escape. The Cottages on Osooyos Lake differs from traditional cottage properties, in that it offers that coveted vacation-esq respite, year-round.
With The Cottages on Osooyos Lake you are not just investing in a home, but in a lifestyle. Encompassed within the 70-acre community is 1,800 feet of waterfront and over 500 feet of beach, walking trails, private boat slips, and a community centre, which includes two pools, a hot tub, and a fully equipped fitness facility. Being part of the south Okanagan community means being steps from the water and a short trip from nearby towns, where entertainment and medical amenities are abundant. These factors make The Cottages well-suited to recent and prospective retirees, families, and young professionals.
In recent years, a variety of factors have driven Vancouver’s housing market steeply upwards, affecting another large demographic of potential property owners. In some cases, young and first-time home buyers, hoping to settle down in metro Vancouver, no longer have this option, driving them out of the city, where cost-of-living is feasible.
While the residents of The Cottages come from differing backgrounds, they all seem to agree on one thing: that the unparalleled spirit of community and friendship at The Cottages make it the perfect place to call home.
