09 Oct CONSIDERING A VACATION HOME IN VICTORIA? 3 TIPS TO HELP YOU DECIDE ON A HOUSE OR CONDO FOR VACATION USE
Are you thinking about buying a vacation house or condo on the west coast? If so, Victoria should be high on your list. From our scenic ocean and mountain vistas to our relaxed pace and friendly residents, Victoria is a popular destination and the perfect city for your next vacation home. In today’s blog post we’ll share three quick tips that will help you decide whether a house or condo is your best option for a luxury vacation home in the Victoria area.
WHAT WILL YOU BE USING THE HOME FOR?
The first consideration that you’ll need to make is what you intend to use the vacation home for. For example, do you want to vacation in Victoria so you can enjoy golfing every day? Or perhaps you love fishing and want to have quick access to hit the ocean each morning to spend a few hours catching dinner? Whatever the case, spend some time thinking about what you will do while you’re on vacation and how you want to spend your time. Our team will be able to suggest communities and neighbourhoods which are in line with your priorities.
WHERE IN THE CITY DO YOU WANT TO BUY?
Speaking of communities – do you have a certain area of the city in mind? If you’re the aforementioned golf lover you’ll likely want to be in Oak Bay or Uplands so you can enjoy close proximity to our world-class golf courses. If you’ve been to Victoria in the past, give some thought to which parts of the city you enjoyed most. Do you want to wake up each morning with a fresh ocean breeze blowing through the windows? Or would you prefer the peaceful tranquility that comes along with being close to one of our large parks? As you consider your options, spend some time driving around Victoria, the Saanich Peninsula and the West Shore to get a feel for each community and whether it feels right.
WILL YOU BE RENTING THE HOME TO OTHER VACATIONERS?
If you plan on renting your vacation home out on VRBO, HomeAway or AirBnB when you’re not using it you’ll want to explore a home in or near the downtown core. Victoria welcomes most of its travelers and vacationing families in the summer months, and virtually everyone that comes to the city stays in close proximity to the downtown area and its museums and other attractions. If you have a larger family you can invest in a home near downtown; singles and couples will likely be better suited in a luxury condo.
