When deciding to buy a property, no matter where the location, you will tend to ask the question “is it a good time to buy?”.
This is a question that our Realtors often get and one that is particularly hard to answer as it depends on a huge range of factors. Everyone’s situation and motives are different, so there is no real one size fits all answer.
As a buyer it’s important that you do your own research and ask questions relating to your specific scenario, but to help get you started, here are some things to consider when looking to buy in Pemberton:
You are buying for lifestyle
The best possible motive for looking to buy a home in Pemberton is buying for lifestyle. Unlike more populated areas such as Vancouver, those looking to buy in Pemberton tend to be motivated by a lifestyle decision. You want to “get away from it all and move to the mountains”.
Buying for lifestyle is great because you will always be happy, no matter what happens. Whether the market goes up or down, you are here because you want to be here and nothing will change that.
If you are primarily looking for an investment or a property to flip for a quick buck, this may not be the place for you. But if you are in love with the area and the community, there is no place better in our opinion than Pemberton!
The market is isolated
One of the interesting things about the Pemberton real estate market is that it is very nuanced and tends to remain unaffected by external factors. You may come to the area with a certain idea in mind about current trends and be surprised to learn that the Pemberton market is in a completely different place.
This is always good to take into consideration when looking for a property as each market will be different and can affect your intended goals. However, one of the benefits of this aspect is that the market here does remain fairly stable and there won’t really be any surprises.
Pemberton is a growing community
The Pemberton community is one of the biggest draws to the area. Everyone is friendly and welcoming and it doesn’t take long before each person you see is a familiar face.
As more people find out about how special it is the community has continued to grow. This means that there is always interest in property here, and with inventory remaining fairly constant you can be sure that when it comes time to sell or upgrade, there will be a market for you.
There is a wide range of options available
Whether you’re looking for a one-bedroom condo, family townhome, chalet with acreage, or to build your dream home, there is something in Pemberton for everyone.
There is always a wide range of options available suited to each buyer, so whatever your requirements you can be sure to find something that will match your needs and wants.
Pemberton is an incredible place to live
Now we may be a little biased on this one, but Pemberton truly is an incredible place to live. From the people to the activities and pace of life, we are so happy to call this area home every day.
So come and see for yourself what makes it so special and begin your Pemberton journey.
