Kelowna Real Estate
Kelowna is one of those perfect cities to live in for any age or stage. With world-class golf courses, award winning wineries, beautiful weather in all four seasons and a stunning landscape of lake and waterfront amongst majestic mountain views, there is no lack of things to do! Summer activities might include biking, hiking, camping, fishing and all sorts of beach related fun at Okanagan Lake or Kalmalka Lake- swimming, boating, wakeboarding or just soaking up the sun on the patio of your favourite local restaurant. And of course, the proximity of Kelowna to Big White and Silver Star ensure that any ski/ snowboard enthusiast are amply fulfilled in the winter.
And really, your choice in activities- your lifestyle- should largely determine where you live here.
One more important thing to consider when buying a home is community. Community is a really essential part of family, lifestyle and real estate. The neighbourhood you choose can have a dramatic impact on your lifestyle. And luckily, there are many great neighbourhood choices available for buyers in Kelowna and West Kelowna.
Despite Kelowna having a reputation for high real estate prices, if you are relocating from a larger urban market, as many Kelowna residents have, you will find you get more for your money here.
Building a new home on a fantastic lot is a great option. And you don’t have to drive 40 minutes out of town to do it. First time home buyers also have a lot of options here, with many new condos and townhomes and lots for sale in great neighborhoods still available for between $200,000 and $300,000.
Based on your price range, you can find houses through property listings in websites like MLS but it is really important to engage a realtor early on in your search for a new home. How to choose a great realtor is a whole other story… but I think I know a team you might like.
