Ozzie Jurock stated a few years ago that the West Kootenays represent a top real estate investment in BC...... Outstanding golf and skiing, low real estate prices and a vibrant economy add up to a region where prices are just starting to move up quickly. Today, that statement could not be more true!
For recreation in the West Kootenays we have Red Mountain restoneresort.com, Whitewater Ski Hill skiwhitewater.com. We have golf courses a very short drive from where ever you choose to live. We have Champion Lakes, Nancy Green Lake, Kootenay Lake, we're just a 2 hour drive from Christina Lake. You can swim, kayak, canoe, fish, camp, boat, or daytrip in just short distances from your home. And of course, the mighty Columbia River offers world class fishing, as well as boating.
Commerce in the West Kootenays is booming. We have Teck doing some major expansions, and with that, Teck is hiring in some major numbers. Firebird Technologies has moved into their brand new building in Fruitvale and is hiring for an expanded workforce. The Waneta Dam project is well under way. We are seeing personnel come into town, from labourers on up through management to work on this 4 1/2 year project.
If you are thinking of buying or selling in the West Kootenay area, call me. I would be very happy to help you find that next home, or first home!
