The cold hard truth.
If you own a condo apartment in Sylvan Lake right now...you have about an 8% chance of selling it. This is odd considering that Sylvan Lake is YOUNG; 54% of the population is under the age of 35. It seems like the perfect fit when you step back and consider the advantages of a condo...low entry price point, no maintenance, and amenities (pools, gyms, rec rooms, movie theaters, etc.). Even if you aren't a first time home buyer - the condo lifestyle is a great fit for:
- Single People: for a single person a full home or even half duplex may not be very practical; a condo can offer all of the benefits of home ownership! Also...you might just meet that special someone considering all of the opportunities to socialize with
Here's the problem.
If you have a family I'm sure you would agree... you need space! My wife and I have three kids. The math would suggest that a 4 bedroom home would suffice, right? But a career in Real Estate (or any other white collar profession) will most likely require a home office - hello bedroom #5 ! Toss in friends and family visits and you'll quickly understand the value of having a guest bedroom - hello bedroom #6 !
So many two-story homes now offer a bonus room above the garage. They make for a wonderful second living space but they're an easy sacrifice to make in lieu of having extra bedrooms.
If you go onto lapprealty.ca or www.Realtor.ca and search for a 6 bedroom two-storey home you'll only find one listing…
Let's get right down to it.
There are almost 500 single family homes for sale in Red Deer (okay 463 ...but who's counting?). You can buy one for as little as $109,900 OR you can stretch your budget to $1,800,000 if you're interested in owning one of the largest homes within city limits...
We know what you're thinking... "This city doesn't have an NHL team...so who the heck can afford a home like this?" - but consider: Red Deer is a centre for oil and agriculture distribution, and the surrounding regions are a major centre for petrochemical production; combine that industry with a young median age and an average household income that is roughly 67% higher than the rest of Canadians... you've got yourself a wonderful market for luxury homes!…
