Prince Edward Island Real Estate Explained!

Prince Edward Island is a small island located 13 km off the east coast of Canada. It is connected to the mainland by the Confederation Bridge as well as ferry and air. While Prince Edward Island is the smallest province in Canada it isn't small on scenery or lifestyle, and the Prince Edward Island waterfront real estate market is strong. Prince Edward Island, the Emerald Isle, is a great place to retire, holiday, or even use as a summer retreat from the hustle and bustle of big city life. Prince Edward Island waterfront real estate is plentiful due to the long jagged coastline and bays and inlets of the island. There is always something new just around the corner and PEI properties and PEI homes are readily available, always beautiful and well-kept, as well as being very affordable. Many visitors to Prince Edward Island, and there are upwards of a million in the summer, choose to enter the Prince Edward Island real estate market and buy a PEI property or PEI home of their own using it for their own vacation as well as netting a return on investment by renting it to other vacationers when not using it themselves. Many PEI realtors and Prince Edward Island real estate agents will manage your PEI property when you are away.

Prince Edward Island real estate affords anyone interested in becoming a Prince Edward Island real estate investor a secure financial instrument upon which to base a wealth-building plan. Prince Edward Island real estate, while perhaps not providing the potential for the large returns to be had in some urban areas, such as the recent "crazy" upturns in portions of the Toronto market, is much easier to break into with much lower cash requirements as well as not being subject to the potential risk and downside of a real estate market that over inflates and then falls. The Prince Edward Island real estate market at present still has many great deals on offer that will allow everyone from the family seeking their first PEI home to the savvy real estate investor looking for a Prince Edward Island commercial or multi-family rental investment.

The Prince Edward Island real estate market is generally though to divide into two distinct categories. There is the local market which includes PEI home owners, islanders generally who live and work here with their families year-round, buying a PEI home or other PEI property for their own use. Then there is a very strong summer Prince Edward Island real estate market which is made up of visitors and summer residents who come to PEI and buy PEI property looking to have a base for a different kind of lifestyle than that found in the bigger Canadian cities. More and more those wishing to be summer residents of Prince Edward Island buy into some of the excellent Prince Edward Island real estate developments such as Sunset Dunes, Granville on the Water and Sunbury Cove.
