If you’re looking for a place to live, don’t forget to look outside the Fraser Valley – Squamish is one of the fastest growing places in the country, and it’s easy to see why.
Squamish has a robust community spirit. Almost 74% of people 12 and older reported a strong or somewhat strong sense of community. That’s nearly 10% higher than the provincial average. Physical activity is an important part of this community, with 71% of the population engaging in physical activity during leisure time.
That makes sense given the gorgeous scenery and exhilarating outdoor activities in the area. Mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, white water rafting, and skiing are all minutes from the town.
Almost 60% of Squamish’s population is under 40, making it the perfect place for young homeowners. And as an example of the area’s popularity, a major housing development in Squamish, called ParkHouse, sold out in record time.
“ParkHouse was the only single day sell out in Squamish. The demand has been growing ever since, so we couldn’t wait to get started on our next development, The Main” says Vince Taylor, Macdonald Realty’s platinum project marketer.
The Main in Squamish will likely steal your heart, located downtown Squamish and only 45 minutes from Vancouver. The development is the brainchild of Gravitas, the company that also designed the record-breaking ParkHouse.
The Main is tailored to outdoor enthusiasts who appreciate living in a community-oriented town. Paired with incredible mountain views and an affordable price tag of $219,000, this luxurious condo development is expected to sell out even faster than ParkHouse.
