Cruising the Internet for BC Condos
Whenever it gets cold and I get tired of walking on icy streets, I start to look at real estate in British Columbia. Even when there is snow, it doesn’t stay in the Vancouver area or on the south end of Vancouver Island (at least that is my dream). So, I have been back looking on the Internet at real estate.
If we are going to live in our next home for 20 or 30 years, then I need to take into account that yard and house maintenance will be a future issue as will climbing stairs to the second floor to go to the master bedroom. I am looking at condos targeted to adults. Now, here are 2 things that I have noticed when condo town homes, apartments and single homes are listed for these adult communities:
- Age minimum: 19
- Pets: Dogs no more than 20 pounds and no taller from the floor to the top of the head of 20″.
Seems like there are some condo boards (called strata in BC) that have become VERY specific about the pets and about children. I guess the definition of adult is 19 and over in BC. What 19 year old in his right mind is going to want to live in an old folks community? Oh yes, the 19 year old who needs free room and board. LOL
I got out the tape measure and the scale and with a few more walks and less treats, Hoover can meet the dog criteria. Just one more reason for having Westies.
Dogs and Kids but with limits.
