The Alberta economy hasn’t been having the best year, and with Brexit shaking the UK, the Canadian dollar has dropped even further. For snowbirds and other Canadians hoping to head abroad for their holidays, the weak dollar is bad news. Fortunately, a slow economy isn’t all rain clouds. For Canadians hoping to invest at home, they’ll find their dollar stretches a lot further than it used to.
Prices are Down.
Since 2007, the cost for recreation properties has dropped by over 50%! On average, lakeside vacation cottages hold around 42% of the value they did just under a decade ago. For Albertans who have been waiting and waiting until they could afford their very own cabin, this is excellent news. And the low prices aren’t harming the buyer’s market either. There are many recreational properties listed for sale, and I recommend you jump on this opportunity before your dream location is sold out and prices are driven up once more.
Vacation in Alberta.
Whether you’re born and raised in wild rose country or live in another province or territory, Alberta is a great place to invest in a recreational property. While we may not have the long history of Quebec or the fresh seafood of the maritimes, Alberta has a strong tourist industry. You can hike the rockies in the Banff and Jasper National Parks, climb the Calgary tower, eat the best steak in the world, and enjoy boating and water activities at one of our many lakes. We have two international airports, and flights are constantly coming into Calgary and Edmonton from all over Canada and the world. By choosing to vacation in Alberta, you keep your hard earned money in our country and help grow the Canadian economy. You also won’t need to worry about your passport or fuss with customs.
Why Gleniffer Lake?
Between the low prices and the natural beauty of Alberta, it’s a no-brainer to invest in a recreational property this year. But many Canadians will wonder why they should choose Gleniffer Lake. The answer is obvious. Our lake is crystal clear, algae free, and safe for swimming and boating. Our miles of beaches are pristine — perfect for tanning or building sand castles. We have all the sport, playground, and other services you want, but with none of the noise or hustle-bustle of the city. We’re a gate community that’s safe for kids and senior alike. Finally, we’re conveniently located in central Alberta, so whether you hail from Edmonton or Calgary, the drive is under two hours.
