There’s just something magical about leaving the city behind and arriving at the lake. The limitless blue waters that touch the sky, and a landscape of trees and prairies instead of suburban houses. The cabin has an air of freedom and safety. It’s a place where kids can roam around the lake or at the playground, and where parents feel more calm and less worried. The worst part of a cottage holiday is going home, so why not decide to let the vacation go on forever?
Recreational Properties are More Affordable than Ever.
Over the last decade, the poor economy has pushed the price for cabins and other recreational properties lower and lower. Compared to 2007, the average cost is only 42% of what it once was. That means, instead of being out of reach, recreational properties are now accessible to more Canadians than ever for. Here at Paradise Realty, we’ve noticed an increase of snowbirds flocking to the affordable prices, but Albertans from all walks of life are investing in lakeside cottages that they know they’ll pass down generation to generation. And even more Canadians are choosing to embrace their cabin as their permanent residence and live at the lake all year round.
How Much are Properties?
This year, we’ve seen prices for a good quality, ready-to-use cottages vary from around 200-300 thousand dollars. So for Canadians hoping to buy their lakeside, dream-home, we have to recommend buying now. Despite the economy, the low prices are attracting buyers, and that means buying now or maybe never.
Why Live at Gleniffer Lake?
Besides the joy of living at a lake all year round, there are many great reasons to choose Gleniffer Lake to raise your family. We’re only half an hour from Red Deer, so all your big-city needs are a quick drive away. Our gated community offers an indoor pool, fitness centre, and all the other amenities you need year round. But perhaps the best reason to choose Gleniffer Lake is that you get to live in a real community.
Whether you love watching (or playing!) in the Sunday baseball games or prefer to attend our annual chili potluck, Gleniffer Lake is a true community of people who know and care about one another. Here at the lake, you’ll find all the joys of an urban life within driving distance, but we maintain our friendly, safe, and community-centred vibe, and that’s something that’s hard to buy anywhere else.
