5 Things To Consider When Purchasing A Home in Sechelt BC

It’s not a surprise that more and more people are wanting to move to Sechelt, BC. This bustling, walkable community on the beautiful Sunshine Coast is the perfect mix of nature and small town vibrancy, with Vancouver and all its offerings nearby.

If you’re dreaming of a community-centred coastal village with access to all the modern amenities you’ll ever need, this is the place for you. Of course, there are still things to keep in mind before buying your dream house. Here are 5 things to consider when purchasing a new home is Sechelt, BC.

Things To Consider When Purchasing A Home In Sechelt BC

#1: GST

GST is applied to new home sales in all of British Columbia. So when you’re looking at homes in BC, be sure to ask whether the listing price includes GST or not, as this can make a very substantial difference in what you ultimately pay. 

Note that GST is included in the price of all single-family homes in SilverStone Heights

#2: Developer & Builder Reputation

The real estate market is booming in BC, and when anything booms, you can expect some less-than-desirable characters trying to get in on the action. That’s why if you are considering a new home in Sechelt or anywhere on the Sunshine Coast, you should carefully vet your builder and/or developer. 

For example, SilverStone Heights developer Greypointe Properties Limited has been working on the Sunshine Coast for over three decades, with a commitment to high-quality construction. And more than 500 families have placed their trust in homes built by Caerus Construction Limited. They are a registered builder (#20631) with the BC Housing Office. 

#3: Home Warranty

We all want our dream home. But we also all want peace of mind. So before purchasing a new home in Sechelt, consider whether it comes with a home warranty or not. 

All new homes in SilverStone Heights offer a 2-5-10 warranty program. They also offer a lifetime manufacturer limited warranty on roofing materials, and a 15-year manufacturers limited warranty on exterior siding. 

#4: Home Availability

Building your own home is tempting, especially in an area as stunning at the Sunshine Coast of BC. But again, this market is booming, which means you can expect reputable builders to be booked up for a least a year. And that doesn’t factor in how long a build actually takes, or the very expensive price of land in this region. 

Thankfully, there’s a better way to deal with limited home availability in Sechelt. SilverStone Heights still has several gorgeous homes available for sale in our walkable, ocean-view community. If you’re ready to walk tree-lined boulevards and come home to your comfy-cozy, West Coast-inspired custom home, this is the community for you. 

#5 Customization

Buying a new home is, of course, a big investment – one that you want to be ‘just right.’ But if you’re not building your new home, getting things ‘just right’ is going to be a challenge – unless you opt for a new home with built-in customization. 

Homes in SilverStone Heights all offer several options for a customized touch. You can choose between three sophisticated colour palettes. You’ll also have the choice of 2 trim packages, along with many affordable and convenient upgrade options as well.
