In anticipation that 2022 will mark a return to the bustling ski seasons of years past, now may be the optimum time to find the mountain lot of your dreams–for a relative steal. Case in point: we recently spotted a 4,704-square-foot freehold lot on Mount Washington for only $139,000, while comparable bargains have been sighted within a stone’s throw of Kimberley Mountain Resort. Build a 1,500-square-foot packaged home for $500,000 and up, and the value in cashing out of your city home has never looked better.
Buy here: 2020 average assessed value of a single-family home in Comox near Mount Washington: $555,000 (up 6%); in Kimberley, $339,000 (up 12%).
