When it comes to Okanagan Valley real estate… what others miss, we know.
Welcome to Vernon, the northern hub of BC’s renowned Okanagan Valley! Nestled conveniently between Calgary, Alberta and Vancouver, BC, the North Okanagan is a veritable four-season playground. Vernon is the commercial centre of the North Okanagan. It’s large enough to offer the amenities most people want, yet small enough to retain small-town charm.
If world class outdoor activities are for you, the Okanagan Valley has it all. The world-class skiing and mountain biking of Silver Star Mountain Resort is just a 20 minutes scenic drive away, while world class golf at at Predator Ridge is a short 10 minute drive away. Did we mention lakes? Three beautiful lakes – Kalamalka (Kal) Lake, Okanagan Lake and Swan Lake offer lakeshore and waterfront living at it’s finest.
Real estate in Vernon and the North Okanagan is diverse and offers a wide variety of opportunities. From luxury Okanagan waterfront and Okanagan lakeshore estates with gorgeous views, to homes on acreage’s and farms, to family neighborhoods and ski hill villas. Prices also vary from average to more expensive yet we are not subject to the BC Provincial Speculation Tax or Vacant Home Tax as other communities in BC are. Local real estate is subject to market trends, as well as supply and demand in the larger regional economy.
Recreational real estate in the North Okanagan is in high demand. There is great interest in Silver Star properties as buyers anticipate the ski and snowboard season. Rental opportunities continue in the Spring for Silver Star Mountain as mountain biking, downhill trails and a bike park take over the hill. However, as spring approaches, we see more interest in recreational real estate located near golf courses and our beautiful lakes. Due to the variety of recreational opportunities during every season, recreational property buyers can enjoy their purchase all year round. For example, Silver Star is an active “all-season” resort, offering mountain biking and hiking in the summer as well.
