As you approach retirement, you may be starting to look into condos for sale in Canada’s most scenic locations. Whether you’re looking for a future retirement home or a getaway for yourself and your spouse, having a small condo provides the perfect escape from the city’s hustle and bustle. Here are the top three reasons to invest in a condo while the market is hot.
Condos Give you the Most Relaxing Vacation
Nearly 60% of us prefer to have a relaxing vacation. As wonderful as a marathon trip to 17 European countries in three weeks can be, you’ll often come back feeling like you need a vacation from your vacation. If you’re like the other two thirds of Canadians who would prefer to have a restful holiday, being able to escape to a condo provides the perfect getaway.
No Itinerary Necessary
After you find the perfect condo, you can stock it with your favorite blankets, movies, deck chairs, and snacks. You can spontaneously take a day to explore the famous Radium Hot Springs Resort or Bighorn Meadows Resort…or not. In your own vacation home, you make the rules. Your visit to the Radium Resort can include a three day soak in the famous hot springs, or you can take in the fresh air and watch the stunning mountain vistas with a glass of wine in hand. There are condos for sale across the region, so be on the lookout for your favorite views and accessibility to your favorite spots.
“Planning” Less Allows You to See More
The Radium Hot Spring Resort adjoins the Kootenay National Park, one of seven that forms the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Having a second home base in a scenic spot allows you to have several trips to the expansive and breathtaking wilderness. Rather than taking a single, stressful visit to Canada’s heartland, having shorter visits over the years allows you to get to know the landscape and to take in all of its beauty.
Ultimately, vacations are about taking in the beauty of nature, bonding with loved ones, and having a chance to recharge from the stress of work. Making time to relax in fresh air with a book, a drink, and a loved one is always worth it.
