The growth and popularity of age restricted +55 years communities are now a 25 year old phenomena. Newly built units can be purchased in nearby Sardis at prices above $400,000 but a more affordable alternative is the active resale market in Sardis, Chilliwack, Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs. Many of these resale homes are lightly lived in and in pristine condition.
Demand for this form of housing, I predict, will only gain momentum. Why? In a word "baby-boomers". Okay, maybe that is two words. Oh, one floor living is about to make a comeback too.
One of my favourites is Cypress Park which offers compact easy to maintain homes with sensible floor plans.
The Cypress Park complex, built 1990 - 1991, consists of 21 freehold bareland strata single family detached houses that provide 2 to 3 bedrooms and sizes that range from 1330 to 1450 square feet. It does have some RV parking but it is limited and often full. No rentals are allowed, pet restrictions apply and a 55+ age requirement is in place. Strata fees are $75 per month covering a variety of items as lawn cutting.
