Canadian Buyers

When you invest in vacation property, you’re looking for that lifestyle purchase to make family memories for years – or generations – to come. But you’re also looking for a good return on your investment, right? Canadians who understand that “value” pertains to more than just money explains why so many of them are crossing the border to purchase chalets at Lofty Mountain Grandeur. See what some of our Canadian buyers have to say about their purchase.

In fact, nine of the 12 properties in Bailey Hills – Lofty Mountain’s SOLD OUT Phase I project – have been purchased by Canadians, with many more expressing interest in our newly available Phase II lots in Rainbow Ridge.

Defining value in so many ways.

When you compare Lofty Mountain with Canadian resorts such as Blue Mountain and Collingwood, you’ll clearly see why Lofty Mountain offers true financial value – and so much more.

But let’s look first at the financial value of purchasing a Lofty Mountain Grandeur chalet. Even with the volatility of the Canadian dollar, real estate remains a very good investment, particularly when you are looking for a four-season lifestyle your family can enjoy for generations.

After completing a Competitive Market Analysis in the Blue Mountain/Collingwood area, Dana Bodnariuc, a sales representative at Century 21 Dreams Inc., in Oakville, ON, had this to say about Lofty Mountain:

“A typical 2,500-3,000 square foot property on three to five acres in Canada ranges from CND $650,000 to CND $800,000 with property taxes of CND $5,800 – CND $7,000,” says Dana Bodnariuc, Sales Representative at Century 21 Dreams Inc. in Oakville, ON. “In my opinion, even with a weaker Canadian dollar, Lofty Mountain still offers a significantly higher value to a Canadian investor seeking a high-end vacation and/or skiing retreat within a two-hour drive from the greater Toronto area.”

Cross the border…and you’re in paradise!

Conveniently located just across the border, Lofty Mountain is just minutes from Allegany State Park and Ellicottville, NY, a quaint town known as the “Aspen of the East” because of its excellent skiing facilities, such as Holiday Valley and Holimont.
