Remote is in the Eye of the Beholder

What is YOUR remote?

We are always cautious when someone tells us they want a remote property. Over the years, Ed and Shelley have learned that one person's remote is another person's crowded community. They ask a number of questions to help determine just what a specific person's remote might be.

1. Do you want/need road access?
For some people remote means no one can drive to the property (generally getting there by boat instead, although some may even be hike in) while for other people having road access may be important, even if it's hours away from civilization.

2. Do you want/need any services?
Does your version of remote mean absolutely no services? Or do you still want access to power or cell service or telephone/internet service?

3. How close do you want other people?
Remote for you might mean no one within sight or sound of your property. For someone else it might mean being part of a small community of properties.

4. How close do you want to be to a service centre or amenities?
While someone may want to live off-grid, they may not want to be more than a couple hours from a service centre or at least access to basic amenities such as food shopping or fuel. Someone else may not care about access to amenities, being willing to travel over a distance to get to any sort of services.

Whatever your remote may be, the BC Oceanfront Real Estate Team can likely find the property for you!

It's a Coastal Lifestyle ... Live It!
