Sunshine Coast's Million Dollar Babies: Hush now, don't you cry!

RE: Sunshine Coast's Million Dollar Babies: Hush now, don't you cry!
As a buyer of one of the few 2013 million $+ Sunshine Coast properties, all I can say is thankfully it's a retirement home. Between BC Ferries and the lack of job opportunities - there is very little to be optimistic about on the coast. Yes - it's a great place to weekend and vacation (oops there's that damn ferry cost raising it's ugly head again) but there's little else to compel people to buy at the moment - other than some increasingly attractive prices and of course the natural beauty of the area.

It's going to take a few ferries full of retiring West Vancouverites to turn this market around....and perhaps an attitude adjustment on behalf of the locals. Hydro was on the property doing some work for me. Casual conversation turned to 'where are you from'? No sooner had I said 'brought up in West Van' and I was cut off with 'so you're one of those'.

As far as I'm concerned there's opportunity waiting for those with cash. Don't wait too long .... because you know what they say about waterfront. :-)
