Comox, or Cumberland? Using PCS Listings to buy Comox Valley Properties
you consider buying real estate, you’ll want to make a list of important considerations that take
your physical requirements into account as well as your lifestyle. Start by making a list of things that you
need. Maybe you want to buy a house that has a
workshop, fewer stairs to climb, or a home that’s more energy efficient. Or, maybe it’s
the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and storage opportunities that would make
life more comfortable. Have your needs changed because your family is growing,
or because they have grown up? Are you looking for ways to downsize and
streamline your lifestyle or do you want room to expand your interests? Make your "wish list" and start dreaming!

sale, does it use well water? What is the age of the septic system? Cindy Armstrong can help
to ensure that you are making a sound investment by helping you to arrange for qualified inspections.
