(News Release) VICTORIA – Victoria doesn't draw nearly the same attention of Vancouver, but if pre-sales of McCormick Meadows are any measure, Victoria's housing market is on fire.
Located on the border of Victoria's Westshore communities of Langford and Metchosin, McCormick Meadows is a new residential neighbourhood that has pre-sold over 30% of its homes in just one month. It outpaces the sizzling 28% growth seen across Greater Victoria, a housing market that continues to rebound after a five-year lull.
"We're thrilled by the response we’ve had from buyers," says Rohan Rupf, marketing director at Keycorp, the company responsible for developing and marketing the project. "People are buying houses off plan, without even setting foot in a show home."
That's significant for Victoria, where buyers have tended to be drawn to spec homes. A substantial advantage of buying off plan is the opportunity to customize their new homes, which according to Rupf is a major reason why people are committing early. And now the public will get its first look at this new community when McCormick Meadows hosts a Grand Opening party and tour this Saturday and Sunday, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
In addition to tours of two fully-furnished show homes with professionally designed interiors, visitors will be able to partake in free lunch, prize giveaways, and family hay rides through phase one of the neighbourhood.
McCormick Meadows' first phase features 30 wide lot homes consisting of thirteen different floor plans that range from 1,300-square-foot ranchers to roomy, multi-storey homes of more than 2,500 square feet. Starting at $459,900, homes feature on-demand hot water, gas fireplaces, gas BBQ outlets, and ductless heat pumps, amongst many other modern features. Inside, elegant, open-concept interiors include designer-selected classic and contemporary colour schemes.
To find McCormick Meadows, travel south on Veteran's Memorial parkway, turning right on Sooke Road. Continue along about 5 km, turning left on Happy Valley Road – just two minutes along Happy Valley Road, turn left on Braeburn Avenue.
