Spring is a great time for real estate in the Comox Valley, when the sunshine and warmer weather makes searching for the right home for sale so much easier. Carla Coulson-Prieto, REALTOR® for Crown Isle Realty in Courtenay on Vancouver Island has some tips to help homeowners in the Crown Isle Resort & Golf Community sell quickly.
Declutter: Potential buyers are looking for a home that reflects them and their home needs. Your personal items and knickknacks can make it difficult for a potential buyer to see a home as theirs. When ever possible, pack up and store personal items that aren’t important to your day-to-day living. This way, a potential buyer can imagine what their belongings will look like in your home.
Light: Today’s homebuyer is looking for a home with plenty of light. There are many things you can do to make sure your home is light and bright for any potential homebuyer. Trim back bushes and trees that may be blocking windows or natural light, change out the light bulbs to a higher wattage, and leave on the lights and open all blinds and curtains ahead of a showing.

Many decisions come with getting older, including whether to downsize. Crown Isle Resort & Golf Community in Courtenay on Vancouver Island offers older residents many opportunities to downsize, and live the active lifestyle they desire.
Whether you're choosing to downsize in order to free up some equity in your home, diversify your retirement portfolio, travel, or purchasing a secondary residence in a warmer climate, Crown Isle has something for you. A popular choice are homes in the 1600 - 2200 sq. ft. range. This is a departure from the large family home and more manageable in size, but still with a nice backyard for gardening and entertaining.
Crown Isle also offers building lots for sale, and the opportunity to build a custom home with features that make aging in place a bit easier. Wider doorways, back-frame for grab bars in the bathrooms, lower counter tops are examples of features that may or may not be necessary in the event an owner eventually needs a wheelchair or walker.
During the past 12 months, over 50% of the new homes and patio homes in Crown Isle have been purchased by current Comox Valley residents who are attracted by the community's great location next to Crown Isle Plaza. This new commercial development is anchored by Thriftys grocery store and offers many more business and health services. It's leisurely walk to pick up groceries, have coffee, do banking, and to access other businesses and services.
