Tsawwassen Real Estate Market
Tsawwassen real estate for sale includes condos, townhomes, and single-family houses. When looking for homes to buy in Tsawwassen, the difference between leasehold and freehold property is something to keep in mind. Why is this distinction important? It’s important because, depending on the housing market when you buy, it may save you as much as $100,000! That’s right. If a similar condo on a freehold is $790K, you might pay only $690K on a leasehold in Tsawwassen.
This is entirely a possibility because the Coast Salish Territory of Salishan First Nation has a 99-year leasing agreement of their land with property developers here, and in a leasehold agreement, you’ll pay less than you would for a comparable condo in a freehold agreement. And there are lots of beautiful condo properties in Tsawwassen for sure. Do be certain you get all the facts about the leasehold for the particular property you’re interested in from your real estate agent.
Other properties for sale in Tsawwassen are freehold which means the property ownership is not based on the timed land lease agreement. Whether you’re interested in a condo, townhouse, or single-family home in Tsawwassen and whether it’s a freehold or leasehold, you’re sure to love all the great options here!
