I had a great experience the past weekend to take a trip through the rockies to the Kamloops area and the Sun Peaks Resort . Not only is this the ski hill of the infamous Nancy Green , it is a great mountain to hike, bike etc .

I had a few meetings with a local Sotheby’s Realtor ( Mike Forester) there who ” to my surprise ” told me that there inventory was very low and if a property went on the market it was gone almost immediately . I had a look at a few homes as well as lots . The lots were priced anywhere from the low 200’s to the mid 500’s .A local builder by the name of Darcy Franklin of Meranti Homes told me that in the area a buyer would have to add on at least 40-50k for lot improvements ( digging out rock etc ) before you could do any foundation work .

The home values were starting at the low 200’s for a small condo on the hill ( great for a weekend getaway ) to 1.5m and higher for a chalet style estate home .

Something for everyone at this mountain hide-away resort that is just over an 1 hr flight from Calgary via West jet then a 45 min shuttle from the airport to the resort .

I know we will be back … hope to see you there !
