TRU rezoning – Planning for a Community – The Reach

In this episode I will talk about Thompson Rivers University(TRU) and their plans to develop a community on campus.TRU has drawn a lot students to live in Kamloops through their law school, English as Second Language, and Business programs. The university has been in the news recently with an application with regards to rezoning. That application was just approved by the City of Kamloops. The rezoning application is meant to make it easier for TRU and its Trust to market the land within the university to Developers both here in Kamloops and Abroad. The University Trust will take to market different parcels of land with 99 year lease agreements.  After the 99 years are up the land will go back to the trust.  The money generated by these sales will be used to fund University activities like research and student development.  The ultimate goal would be to have a community not unlike the ones that are currently at other post secondary institutions in the province, with both residential and commercial buildings. The first potential development which could break ground as early as next year might be a condo development located behind the old main building. Years from now, depending on market demand, there might be as many as 3500 residential units within the university. The master plan for the development can viewed here at this website.  If you are thinking of buying or selling please feel free to contact me when you are ready to make that move.

Red Lake, Kamloops BC – Get to know one of Kamloops’ most affordable Acreage Areas

Red Lake is an area well known for some great fishing and hunting areas.  The area resides in a naturally wooded area that provides excellent cover from winds customary in some of the other areas of Kamloops. What is also great about Red Lake is it resides at a slightly higher elevation and as a result is usually a few degrees cooler than valley temperatures.  Aside from that there are some great hiking trails that lead to some really nice water holes where someone can enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings.

One of the main reasons why this area is so affordable is that there is a year round dirt road access, that is a blast when you are into driving 4X4.  To get a better idea of what the area is like feel free to take a look at this sample video of the road leading to the Red Lake area:

Ask an Expert. What should you be looking for when hiring a real estate agent?

Managing all of the details surrounding the sale of your home is one of the most important factors in getting the best results. One aspect of the managing process includes the advertising strategies a Realtor(R) implements for your property. Conveying the value of your home and targeting your ideal buyer is crucial. Your agent should take high quality pictures and advertise using a variety of mediums, such as websites, direct email, and other digital marketing mediums.

Another significant aspect of the managing process is concerned with dealing with people. In real estate, establishing good relationships with buyers is key as this enables an agent to investigate buyers’ needs to match them up with an appropriate property. This process leads to the best results which is a win/win situation where the seller sells their unique property to a buyer who appreciates the value.
