Video of Sardis Park from the sky.


No Comments

It was such a beautiful March 1st day that I decided to shoot some video of Sardis Park in Chilliwack BC. ¬†I almost feel guilty with all the pictures of the crappy weather on the east coast…but then again…no one forces people to live there ūüôā ¬†The video is only a couple of minutes long. ¬†Make sure to turn on the sound¬†and hit HD. ¬†And yes we do actually have a Sesame Street…it’s between Silver and Lake with only a couple houses on it.

Sardis Park is one of my favourite areas of Chilliwack. ¬†Of course I live here, so maybe I’m a bit bias. ¬†It’s such a great area to raise a family. ¬†We can walk to tons of parks, golfing, shopping, schools. ¬†Most streets are really quiet so you never have to worry about riding bikes or playing road hockey.

Real estate in the area is very diverse. ¬†There are condos which range from $130K to over $200K. ¬†Townhouses from $230K to over $330K. ¬†The single family home market is very unique because there are still a lot of older homes on large city lots but we are seeing many older homes being torn down and new construction in it’s place. ¬†Occasionally¬†you can buy a small single family home for under $300K but that’s pretty rare. ¬†The median home price is $357K and the highest sale this past year was $700K. ¬†There are also a few age restricted rancher communities which usually start in the $340K range and can go up to over $400K. ¬†Average time to sell a home in Sardis Park is 135 days. ¬†That number is a bit skewed because it takes into consideration the condo market…which is still fairly slow. ¬†Usually a detached home in Sardis Park, if priced properly, will sell in 60 days or less.

Everything is within walking distance. ¬†Tim Horton’s, Shoppers Drug Mart, BMO, Sushi, Kinkora Golf Course, Sardis Elementary, Sardis Park. ¬†The actual Sardis Park has a good size pond with a walking path that goes around. ¬†There are a couple play parks for the kids to use and a lot of ducks and Canadian geese¬†call the park home. ¬†If you have any questions about Sardis Park let me know…I’m just a phone call away 604-795-1616.

Moon and Mt. Cheam

The moon beside Mt. CheamI took Dean Small with me to my open house in Rosedale and while he showed off the house¬†I snapped a few photos of this beautiful Feb 28th day.¬† The only one I’m posting is this shot of the moon beside Mt. Cheam….which I’m pretty sure every single person in Chilliwack has captured at some point or another. ¬†However if you look really close….really…..really close, you will notice a big difference between this one and all the others. ¬†Again, you have to look very close ¬†– ¬†you see this picture was taken by me ūüôā¬† Not worth the build up??

Birdhouse

Birdhouse.1I was taking pictures of a new listing for one of my Royal LePage colleagues and the owner had a couple of these hand made birdhouses outside. ¬†Couldn’t help but snap a photo looking towards the forest beside her house. ¬†Whatever bird occupies this bad boy is pretty lucky. ¬†Custom built 2 storey log home would fetch a pretty penny in this market…especially with the private backyard.

Starbucks.1This is a shot I took this morning of the Starbucks where I donate so much of my income. ¬†This is the one by VanCity in the mall parking lot. ¬†It’s a typical rainy day in Chilliwack and I thought a shot of the umbrella with no one under it looked kinda fun.
