Sunshine Coast Investment Property

Sunshine Coast investment property is something more and more people are looking for. With its close proximity to Vancouver, and the climate being somewhat superior, it is an ideal place to buy investment property that can be used for retirement or vacationing in the years to come.

It is very common for people to purchase homes as investment properties and rent them out 'seasonally'. Typically there is a surge of rentals available every September - October with short term leases available. These leases usually end in May or June.

One would think that it would be difficult to find a tenant willing to stay for a 'short term', but these are usually superior rental homes.

Why? Because the owners take them back 2-4 months out of the year and do repairs and updates while they enjoy the property for themselves.

There is a very low vacancy at present on the Sunshine Coast, and while the rental rates are much lower than the Lower Mainland, there is still the opportunity to search out a home that may pay for itself through rental and provide you with a return on your investment.
