You probably know by now my fascination and dedication to our little fowl friends. Yes, they are a bit stinky, but they have personalities you could never have imagined and the egg bounty is mind blowing.
So, today’s reality cheque post isn’t about beach resorts, or jungle sanctuaries, or even living on someone else’s farm, it is about finding your own, with a place to house some little feathered friends.
And keeping your budget in tact.
And because most of you reading this are Canadians, we are staying north. And in BC. Just because I have a little thing for BC.
First up, you can check out the landquest site. They have a sweet little bitty 22acres up for sale in the Kooteneys. Now granted, it is in the Kooteneys, but it is also $277,000.
Best thing about the Landquest site is that they also share information about the location of the properties, listing local services and amenities.
One thing I have learned since moving “AWAY” (as in out of Vancouver) is that there are a whole lot of people who DON’T LIVE IN VANCOUVER!
I know. This is hard to believe.
I have a friend who lives in Cranbrook. She likes it. She buys groceries, has a job, raises her family and attends Zumba classes. Who knew eh! (check out this listing!)
My cousins live in Revelstoke. Did you know there is a ski mountain there – a nice one! And this little spot outside of Osoyoos is one of my favorites. Skiing right up the hill at Mount Baldy and if you can find a way to capitalize on all those summer tourists, you’re made!
I think the point here is that the high prices of the tiny suburban home is suckering us into thinking we have something good going on.
People. We don’t. To have only lived your life in the city is such a loss. Explore, open your ideas and ditch the smog.
and of course, you can always join me on Saltspring . . .
