Small Town Living at Its Best at Parksville Bay, Rathtrevor Beach and Qualicum Beach Resort Real Estate

If you are looking into retiring or moving to the Central Vancouver Island area, there are a plethora of new resort and recreational style real estate developments ongoing in the growing area. With a push from Albertans and Americans a few years ago, the Central Island of Vancouver Island which includes Qualicum Beach property to Parksville real estate, has grown not only in terms of the size of the resort community put also capital appreciation of property. It is no wonder, with the temperate climate, outstanding beaches, quality waterfront and beachfront land and other resort amenities, that parksville, qualicum and Rathtrevor Beach real estate are among the most expensive yet affordable recreational properties still available in BC. For more information about the areas, please visit or email for the details about central Vancouver Island.

About the Central Island Area

Published recently in the New West Coast Homes magazine: Low tide along the Central Island opens up huge expanses of sandy beaches around Parksville Bay, Qualicum Beach and Rathtrevor Beach, an invitation for leisurely walks along the water’s edge, studying the starfish and crabs and sand dollars among the intertidal pools. Strolls along the beach at Parksville resort and Qualicum beaches and watching the many activities held through the year are favourite pastimes of those who live in Central Vancouver Island real estate, the region known as Oceanside. Oceanside real estate stretches from Nanoose north to Deep Bay and inland to Cathedral Cove, an area of beaches, forests and an abundance of natural attractions, recreational activities an friendly, welcoming communities. Oceanside is small town living at its best. Blessed with inviting weather, it attracts many who retire here to escape the long cold weather in Ontario or Alberta or the BC Interior. Half a dozen nearby golf courses in Oceanside BC provide year round play and newcomers quickly discover the relaxed friendliness of Oceanside life. The entire community from Parksville real estate to resort Bowser property, Qualicum Beach and Deep Bay joins in the events and festivals that take place throughout the year, lining the streets for the Canada Day Parade, the Brant Wildlife Festival in April, the car show in June, the Parksville Beach festival and sand sculpting contest in August and any holiday given a name. Parksville resort real estate claims two f the Island’s best beaches – Parksville Beach itself, and Rathtrevor, in the provincial park. Parksville’s Community Beach has a kid’s wonderland of swings, slides and water cannons. The town of Qualicum Beach resort real estate has retained a village quaintness, with small shops, a summertime’s farmer’s market and Qualicum Foods described by one enthusiastic resident as “The most wonderful grocery store on Vancouver Island.”

Central Vancouver Island Real Estate Prices

So what does it cost to live in the Island Utopia? From about $300,000 for single family homes to million dollar mansions. And there is no better time to look than right now. “This is a buyer’s market,” says Antolick, of Royal LePage Parksville Qualicum Beach Realty. “What we are selling here is lifestyle,” she says. Ian Lindsay, president of Re/Max First Realty in Parksville real estate property, who raised his family here, says, “Whether you are living here or visiting, it is a special place. There is a natural beauty to the area that becomes part of your life. Anyone who is thinking of moving for retirement or a change their lifestyle, or looking for recreational property should consider the Central Island, from Nanoose to Qualicum Beach.

Bighorn Mountain Resort Fractional Owners

Imagine owning a five-star property at Canmore’s Bighorn Mountain Resort. You arrive at your exquisitely furnished, 2,400 sq ft home, fridge fully stocked and spa services booked by the concierge. After a day in the Rockies, you can plunge into your rooftop hot tub, barbeque on one of four decks, curl up in front of one of five flat-screen TVs, or relax in one of three deluxe master suites …

Sound like a retreat for the ultra rich? IN fact, it’s easily affordable, thanks to an innovative fractional ownership concept premiering this fall at Bighorn Mountain Resort in 2006. The Resort is Canmore’s first private residence club. As a member, you share title ownership in one of 20 exclusive $2.4 million vacation homes. The cost per 1/8th share is $225,000, which mortgage companies view as an appreciating real estate investment, versus timeshares, which are considered depreciating assets.

You may buy as many shares ass you like. One share gives you five weeks’ accommodation annually, plus additional visits during 11 weeks of flex-time. Every day of the year at the Canmore Bighorn Mountain Resort , you have full access to resort’s private spa, mineral pool, fitness centre and lounge.

Since more vacation home owners spend less than four weeks annually at their real estate properties, fractional ownership, like the one at Bighorn Mountain Resort in Canmore, works brilliantly. For a fraction of the cost, home owners and real estate investors, can enjoy superb amenities and services, with no maintenance or security worries – while investing in Canmore’s sizzling real estate market.

For details on fractional ownership at Bighorn Mountain Resort in Canmore, please visit or call toll-free 1-866-890-7563.

The Best of All Words through Fractional Ownership of Real Estate

It’s part of the North American dream. The vacation getaway. A place by the lake where you leave everyday cares far behind, where sunny days are filled with water sports and where good times seem to stretch to eternity. And as we near the end of the 21st century’s first decade, more people than ever are making that dream into a reality thorugh real estate fractional ownership or co-ownership of property opportunities. A great article by the most trusted resort property writer, Susan B for the Homes and Resort magazine of BC. But if you’re thinking quaint if somewhat rustic cottage in the country, think again. Fueled in large part by demand from the growing legions of baby boomers across North America, today’s resort getaways need to be increasingly sophisticatd, upscale and urbane to attract attention. Boomer homebujyers in recreational real estate know what they want which usually includes luxury, pampering, amenities, fine dining and they have both the money as well as the inclination and time. Already well heeled in their own right, many boomer home buyers are also reaping the benifts of what financial analysists believe will be the largest transfer of wealth in history – some $41 trillion that’s beginning a relentless migration from the pockets of the aging boomer population into the pockets of their active – leisure oriented adult children who are the beneficiaries. And with more than 80 per cent of this financial tsunami yet to hit, recreational real estate property and resort homes is clearly taking the lead as their investment vehicle of choice.

Fractional wnership Provides Sound Economics and Ultimate Flexibility to Boomer Buyers

With the price of new recreational property and resort homes skyrocketing, fractional ownership also makes economic sense. “Why would you pay a full time price for property you only use part time?” says Craig Andersen of PilotHouse Real eState Inc and an enthusiastic suppoerter of this sales model. In fact, after marketing a variety of resort fractional real estate propreties including The Residences at Sun Peaks, Craig purchased a quarter ownership as alegacy for his oen family at Currents at Otter Bay on Pender Island. “The national average for use of a vacation property is 19 days – or rougly three weeks per year,” he points out. “So what happens to your vaction property for the rest of the year? Usually it just sits there… empty. Quarter ownesrhpi or fractional ownership gives y ou use of your resort property for 12 weeks throughout the year, and it’s guilt free. You know everything will be clean and in perfect working order every time you show up – no more spending half the holiday fixing things, and if you decide not to use it yourself, it goes into the rental pool and generates revenue for you.” If you’re truly serious about taking more time off but can’t quite see eye to eye with your significant other about where to spend your vacations, fractional resort ownership of real estate could also be the route to the return of holiday harmony. As one fractional ownership purchaser at The Residences at Sun Peaks puts, “I like to ski, my wife prefers the desert to eh mountains and my kids want to vacation in Hawaii. Instead of buying one property that’s a compromise, fro the same price I can buy a quarter interest in four properties, enveryone gets what they want and everyone’s happy.”

A New Style of Co-Ownership of Resort Property

Rapidly becoming a serious contender in this competitive world of vacation properties, fractional ownership is on the rise. From Whistler and the Gulf Islands to Osoyoos and ski slopes in Fernie real estate, many of the most exclusive resorts under constructin are adopting this sales model in order to appeal directly to a real estate market of boomer homebuyers who want maintenance free, distinctly hands off approach to recreational property. These hotel style strata units come fully furnished most of the time and are most frequently offered in quarter, third or half shares basis although twelfth shares are now appearing with more regularity. Unfortunatley, often still tarnished by the unsavoury reputation of the totally unrelated timeshare, each fractional share of resort property is fully deeded property you can resell, mortgage, or will to the beneficiary of your choice. Boomer buyers have access to their property on a rotational basis – typically for a week period each month. However, if you choose not to use your property during your rotation, it’s placed into a rental pool generating a revenue stream that can be sued to offset your carrying costs. Here too, the emphasis is on no worry resort real estate investment through fractional ownership – professionals like Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts and Bellstar Hotels & Resorts handle the myriad details of hotel management, reservations and housekeeping. One baby boomer home buyer at the recently opened, $31 million Painted Boat Resort Spa & Marina in Pender Harbour put it this way. “We’re too busy to worry about maintenance and repairs, and we certainly didn’t want just any property. Here you have 24/7 serivce, the amenities are of an excellence that means we can bring clients as wella s family, and witht eh marina we have the option of arriving by private boat or floatplane. There really is nothing else like it.” Now selling in the Gulf Islands, Galiano Oceanfront Inn & Spa fractional ownership opportunities is proving so popular that many early boomer buyers are purchasing additional fractions in this oceanfront retreat. “We’re seeing people who bought one of our Villas now buying a Spa Suite for when they have guests or older children come to say,” explains sales rep Ian Watts. “Everyone has privacy, but you can all get together for socializing or meals.”

A Portion of the Pie - Article about Fractional and Quarter Ownership of Real Estate

Fractional ownership entitles buyers to a portion of the development with equity that can be resold. Quarter ownership offers buyers access for at least 12 weeks a year – more than enough for a vacation getaway. This article comes from the Westcoast Homes & Design magazine from November 2006 and is written by Leslie Peterson.

Almost a decade ago, a ski-resort developer in the French Alps persuaded some of his guests that, rather than rent, they ought to buy a portion of the hotel he was development. This innovate marketing concept has grown exponentially to encompass a whole range of fractional ownership arrangements, up to 1/52nd and beyond.

The terms timesharing and fractional ownership often are treated as one and the same. Not so, according to those who market and sell these resort properties. They are friendly cousins, perhaps, but with marked differences in actual ownership, though both arrangements attract buyers looking for vacation getaways.

Similarities? “Why pay 100 per cent of the cost for something you can’t possibly use 100 per cent of the time?” asks Vince Taylor of Pilot House Real Estate. Both timesharing and fractional ownership are set up to offer buyers a slice of paradse without paying for the whole pie. But there the commonality ends, Taylor says.

“Unlike timeshares, which confer right of use but not fee simple title to the land,” he notes, “fractional ownership is considered genuine real estate and entitles buyers to a portion of the development with equity that can be resold. So the fractional share of the cottage or ski chalet can be mortgaged, bequeathed in a will, listed and sold like any other home, without involving the other owners.”

Quarter ownership, the most exclusive form of fractional ownership, came on to the local real-estate scene in late 1999 Whistler’s Montebello II, where more than $25 million of quarter shares sold in the initial sales launch. The biggest surprise at the time was that only about 20 per cent of quarter-ownership buyers were concerned about affordability, Taylor says. “Most quarter ownership buyers continue to be primarily interested in luxury and availability of the finest real estate offerings in the world. Combine that with the fact that each owner has access to at least 12 weeks each year – since few people have more than 12 weeks’ holidays, the time is more than enough.”

Aside from the financial advantages, quarter-ownership also offers purchasers the freedom on the “lock and leave” lifestyle. Just walk in the door, pick up skis or a tennis racket, then head for the hills, the court or the beach. No repairs, no cleaning and upkeep, simply the opportunity to take full advantage of leisure time.

According to Taylor, there are no hidden costs or surprises of quarter ownership. “For each property,” he explains, “there is an ownership corporation (which helps set the usage rotations, and looks after all indoor finishings) and a typical strata corporation with duly elected officers. As always, all costs/budgets, changes must be approved by the owners – just like any other type of real estate. The only difference is that all the aggregate costs are then divided equally between the owners of each home.”

Recently, concerns have been raised in connection with taxation of these properties. Yet according to John Peebles, manager, valuation, and policy standards with BC Assessment, it is important to understand “that the use of the property is the key to determining the classification, rather than the form of ownership.” To be classed as commercial, any type of real estate must pass strict tests. For example, if a complex is smaller than 20 units, it remains in the Class 1 residential category, he says, pointing out there has been no change in legislation, merely closer scrutiny. “Every strata corporation is a bit different as to how it is structured, so potential buyers should read the fine print in the prospectus to see what the limitations are for personal use.”

With more than a 15 year history in North America, this radical shift in our approach to vacation time represents secure, traditional real-estate purchase with a healthy resale market, Taylor says. “living in the finest homes for a fraction of the total cost, never having to worry about maintenance, cleaning or repairs, and always having a stable real-estate investment makes quarter ownership the most popular choice for families, professional investors who are not afraid of the brave new real estate world.”
