That’s the secret to Southwind’s success."

As well, the owners of Southwind Homes actually live at RiversEdge. When developers live in a community, you can feel secure knowing they'll be there for all and any issues that arise during the 10-year warranty period. The new ranchers at The Ridge at RiversEdge are also the lowest-priced new homes anywhere in the Comox Valley.
