Recreational Properties on the Rebound

recreational property

Recreational properties in the Greater Alberta area have been few and far between in the past couple years. One study suggested that only three waterfront recreational properties were available in the region in 2012. Since that time, the market has been slowly rebounding.

As more properties have become available, average prices for prime waterfront homes have actually decreased slightly. In 2012, properties located near a recreational lake or waterways were going for an average of more than a million dollars. Since that time, the average price of recreational properties in the community has actually dropped down closer to $750,000.

These prices are greatly impacted by fluctuations in oil prices. While the price of oil stays down, share prices will undoubtedly be down for many oil companies. As the oil industry strengthens, more people are expected to invest money back into recreational properties.

What does this mean for someone interested in buying a recreational property in the Alberta area? Essentially, it means that now is a great time to invest your money in some prime waterfront real estate. As oil prices increase, property values will also begin to rise in response.

Because prices are down, there’s really no better time to find an amazing recreational parcel that will stay in your family for years. This trend has been relatively consistent since the economic downturn of 2008. In the past, recreational properties have been much more resilient to fluctuations in their value. However, in response to the economic crisis of 2008, demand for prime waterfront real estate has taken a dramatic hit.

As people are more frugal with their dollar and have turned to maintaining savings rather than actively seeking investment opportunities, the recreational property market has seen a significant decrease in demand. Prices are still struggling to get back to their pre-2008 highs.

Despite the fact that recreational properties in Alberta are an incredibly limited commodity, prices are expected to creep back up very slowly. One of the major reasons for this continued trend is the increasing attractiveness of destinations to the south.

Many Canadians that possess the necessary means are turning to properties in more affordable markets. One such market exists in various cities in Arizona. While travel costs add an additional expense for Canadians interested in a Phoenix or Scottsdale recreational property, the cost of homes and property is so much lower that additional travel expenses aren’t deterring many Canadian residents that are looking for a warm summer retreat.

Currently, vacation homes in the Phoenix and Scottsdale areas are going for anywhere between 200 and 300 thousand dollars, less than half of the average price for an Alberta recreational property, despite the Canadian market being down.

Along with significantly cheaper prices, Phoenix and Scottsdale are appealing vacation destinations for Alberta residents because of the relative ease of travel. Direct flights to Phoenix are readily available from both Edmonton and Calgary, which significantly reduces the hassle of traveling to a summer destination.

That being said, there are still a great number of extremely attractive properties available on or near Gleniffer Lake. This destination is located centrally to both Edmonton and Calgary, making it an ideal location to get family together for a fun-filled, relaxing summer vacation.

How to Ensure the Safety of Your Vacation Rental

vacation property

Your vacation rental is undoubtedly one of your most prized financial investments. It provides a fun, safe, and relaxing summer getaway for your family, having fun doing exercise and eating healthy, although this is easier to accomplish with a diet from sites as https://reportshealthcare.com/. In many cases, it may also serve as your retirement home when your kids are in college or once they find jobs in the real world.

While this is a fun-filled place for your family, the fact that you aren’t present for the majority of the year means you should be concerned about the security of your property while you’re away. There’s nothing worse than arriving at your summer home, primed for a relaxing vacation, to find that you’ve been the victim of a burglary. 

At Gleniffer Lake, we pride ourselves on being one of the safest lake communities in Canada. Because we are a gated community, we’re able to keep our community members’ assets as safe as possible. That being said, each household should still consider additional steps to maintain the security of their home.

Here are a few ways in which you can protect your real estate investment at Gleniffer Lake:

Get to Know Your Neighbours

In many cases, your best security option lies in the people that live around you. In a community with many vacation rentals, full-time residents are extremely valuable. Quite often, these residents become ‘de facto’ security guards during the slow season.

If you have a neighbour, or someone who lives down the block, that remains at Gleniffer Lake year-round, take some time to get to know them. These people will be the first to recognize anyone that may pose a security threat to your home and they will swiftly contact you in the event of any incidents.

Close The Curtains

This seems simple. Of course you’re going to close your curtains when you leave your vacation rental, right? Well, you’d be surprised how many vacation owners overlook this small detail. Leaving your curtains open invites unwanted eyes.

If you have valuables in your home, open curtains are an easy way for burglars to survey ‘the goods’ before actually entering your home. Closing your blinds will keep those wandering eyes off your most expensive possessions. Removing temptation always decreases the likelihood of a break-in.

Low-Cost Security Devices

If the security of your vacation rental warrants a bit more than a healthy relationship with your neighbors, there are a few low cost options you might consider. Deadbolts will eliminate the threat of easy entry, or the random wanderer who simply wants to kick in a door.

Motion-sensor lights in your driveway and on your back deck will give the impression that someone is home if an intruder comes a bit too close. Whether you have a dog or not, the classic, “Beware of Dog,” sign is always a good detractor of unwanted visitors. 

High-End Options

If you’re still concerned with home security, and you don’t think the low cost options will help you sleep at night, there are several more expensive options to consider. A sturdy safe will help you protect the most valuable items that remain in your rental year round.

Security cameras and alarm systems will help you keep your home safe while you’re not there. If you’re thinking about taking this route, be sure to communicate with your homeowner’s association, as well as any potential renters, to alert them to the presence of cameras and an alarm system on your property.

Thankfully, Gleniffer Lake is one of the safest vacation communities in Canada. We work hard to ensure the safety of your home and property. Nevertheless, the security tips mentioned above will help you guarantee the safety of your investment, as well as prevent the loss of any valuables in your home.

5 Ways to Maximize Your Summer Vacation

summer vacation

School’s almost out. The weather’s warming up. Pools are opening and lakes are ready for boating. Summer is upon us and if you haven’t started planning your summer vacation yet, you better start today!

Summer vacation provides endless opportunities. Honestly, it can be a little tough to choose from the variety of amazing activities available at Gleniffer Lake in the summer months. You might be visiting for a relaxing couples weekend, a fun-filled vacation with your immediate family, or an action-packed family reunion.

At Gleniffer Lake, you’ll find a number of activities and amenities suitable to your groups’ specific needs. That being said, planning a summer vacation can be stressful and time consuming. In the end, a vacation that doesn’t go according to plan might not be enjoyable at all. In this case, your vacation really won’t feel like a true vacation.

Here are a few tips designed to help you get the most of your summer vacation here in Gleniffer Lake:

Read A Book!

While we pride ourselves on offering a myriad of activities during the summer, Gleniffer Lake is also an amazing location for a little rest and relaxation. While you’re hanging out on the beach at the edge of our magnificent lake, you might as well bring a good book and get lost in a good old-fashioned story.

Learn Something New!

Summer vacation is an excellent time to learn a new skill, try a new sport, or master a new language. We’re often conditioned to look at the summer as completely devoid of education value. In fact, increased levels of physical activity, combined with increased exposure to sun may actually make us ripe to learn new skills during the summer.

Exercise!

There’s really no better way to increase your level of happiness. Studies have shown that exercise releases endorphins, which contribute to feelings of happiness and accomplishment. At Gleniffer Lake, you can go for a casual run on the lake’s edge, take a kayak out for an afternoon paddle, run around on the tennis court, or go for a nice swim in our swimming area.

Unplug!

Summer’s a great time to leave those laptops at home and your phones in the car. It’s easy to become over reliant on technology during the winter months. The weather is often less than favorable and going outside requires excessive layering.

If you truly want to connect with your family this summer, try implementing a “no phones” policy for a few days during your vacation. Encourage your family members to unplug from virtual reality and plug into the reality that exists all around them!

Protect Your Skin!

This suggestion is easily overlooked, but it’s extremely important. Bad sunburn can leave you indisposed for days on end. You don’t want to be the one who can’t attend an awesome day of boating on the lake because you neglected to use sunscreen while you were lying on the beach the day before!
