UBC offers a full range of housing options in five distinct neighbourhoods to provide a unique opportunity to live, work and learn in a truly integrated campus community.

UBC Condos are roomy enough for families not just students.

When most people think of condos, they think of places where students or twenty-somethings would live. They don’t imagine moving into a condo with their kids. However, there are many UBC condos for sale that are perfect for families with young children. These condos have many amenities for kids and adults alike. Here are a few of the reasons why a UBC condo might be the perfect choice for your family’s new home.

One reason that your kids are sure to love a condo is because there are many activities for them to do either on the condo’s property or very close to it. For example, the new Adera development in the UBC area is close both to the beaches and Pacific Spirit Park. Your kids will be able to run to the playground in the park whenever they’re bored. It’s also right near an elementary school, so your kids will never be too far from home.  Many condo developments are close to stores or parks. Some even have outdoor pools that your kids can spend their summers splashing around in. Your kids will be able to enjoy some freedom, and you’ll be able to enjoy some peace in your home.

Another reason that a condo could be perfect for you is because you can often move in to a condo right after you buy it. You won’t have to wait months to find out if you got the house you were trying to buy. As soon as your family is ready to move, you’ll be able to go. This will save you the headaches that come with purchasing a new house. You’ll be able to move into your condo quicker and in a way that is nearly hassle free.

Finally, a condo could be great both for you and your kids because of the closeness of your neighbors. If your kids make friends in the condo development, they will be able to hang out with them whenever they want. They won’t have to bug you to drive them somewhere; everyone they want to see will be within walking distance. You’ll also be able to see your friends as often as you want, meaning that in a condo development there’s little chance of getting lonely or bored. Everything you want is right there for you.

Condos aren’t just for university students and young professionals. They’re perfect for families with kids of any age. You’re sure to find something to love in your brand new condo.

There are many great UBC condos for sale. Be sure to check them all out, and contact us if you have any questions about anything you see.

It’s June, and the weather outside is heating up. Winter jackets are being stored away, shorts are being brought out, and kids and adults alike are ready to get outdoors. You may be wondering what there is to do in the UBC area in the summer months, especially if you just bought your UBC real estate. If that is your worry, here are a few fun activities that are guaranteed to be a good time for people of all ages.

UBC Botanical Garden and Centre for Plant Research

The botanical garden at UBC is a great summer activity because it’s all outdoors, and it’s just down the street from your home. If you have kids, you can take them on the Greenheart Canopy Walkway to explore the tops of the trees. Or, if you’re going with a group of adults you can spend the day leisurely strolling through the gardens and learning about a wide variety of plants along the way. The UBC Botanical Garden is the perfect way to spend a warm, sunny communing with nature.

Locarno Beach

If you love spending summer days on the beach, Locarno Beach is for you. It’s a designated quiet beach, which means there is no amplified sound allowed, so you can relax with a book without being interrupted by booming music from a stereo system. There’s concession stands for the kids, volleyball courts, and lifeguards on duty to ensure your safety. This is a great place to spend a lazy Saturday or Sunday.

Greater Vancouver Zoo

Getting to this zoo will require you driving a little ways from your UBC home, but it’s worth it when you see the variety of animals on display at the Greater Vancouver Zoo. There’s something for everyone here, from the Safari Mini Train that takes you around the perimeter of the zoo to the multitude of animal habitats. This is the perfect day trip for kids and adults.

Biking on a Greenway

If you’re an avid cyclist, you’ll love Vancouver’s greenway system. These trails can be used for commuting to work, or for just a fun day activity. Vancouver’s many trails will take you through the parks and the city streets. This is one of the best ways to get to know Vancouver. If you’re just moving to the area, you can spend your summer getting to know UBC and the surrounding area by bicycle.

These are just a few of the many ways you can take advantage of the area around your new UBC real estate. If you have any concerns or if you have more questions about the area around UBC, feel free to contact us with any inquiries you may have.
