Rocky Mountain real estate: 10 waterfront acreages in the Kootenays
Check out our list of diverse waterfront acreages that can be found in the southeast corner of B.C.
According to the Association of Interior Realtors, the Kootenay region is seeing a modest increase in home sales despite rising interest rates.
“The region is one of the more affordable markets in BC, so it comes as no surprise that it is an area with more consistent market activity,” said Association of Interior Realtors® President Chelsea Mann.
The area has always been lucrative in terms of people looking for more value for their investment money, and of course, the numerous lakes and beautiful scenery only add to the attraction.
Check out our list of 10 waterfront acreages dotted across the Kootenays. These properties are all diverse in terms of both cost and what they offer: vacant land, development and business potential, existing homes or perhaps the site of your dream home. What they have in common is they all offer what many people find most desirable in real estate: waterfront living.
