Ajey Boury and his wife Kym are old hands in the real estate business, having closed 15 deals in Kelowna Market in the past 10 years. During this time, they lived by the golden rule of real estate when buying rental properties and homes – above all, choose a good location.

With their recent purchase in the 52-unit Glenpark Row townhouse development, they saw an added benefit by following this rule: what works as a good rental property works reasonably well for them as a good single-family home, ”said Boury. “And we know that with a great location you will always do well in the long run.”

Boury trained as a practical nurse, but he and Kym did so well on this location-location-location principle that they recently retired and are dependent on income from their investments. You have lived in several areas in Kelowna, including a house in the prestigious Wilden residential complex and in the city’s hospital district. But sometimes life throws a few curve balls that require adjustment to new realities. When Kym became “afraid of skin cancer,” they realized that building a new house on another Wilden property would not work.

“When I built in Wilden 11 years ago, it was sunny from 1pm to 10pm,” which Kym’s condition obviously could not take. “We couldn’t use the pool or the other luxuries in the development. This is not fun. We don’t want to have to dress up like ninjas to be out there. ”They had bought another piece of land in Wilden, but decided to make a course correction. Thanks to brisk demand in the local market, they received a call within an hour from a contractor who had bought their property.

In the meantime, they had been looking for investment opportunities in the North Glenmore area. Boury says it has all the makings of a good family lifestyle.

In the vicinity there are three schools, a shopping center with two grocery stores, restaurants, banks and a large sports field within walking distance.

Don Warkentin, whose company Fortune Marketing sells Glenpark Row, says the North Glenmore area is becoming increasingly popular, especially with first-time buyers looking for a townhouse under $ 600,000. Four years ago, Fortune marketed VanMar Development’s nearby townhouse development, Drysdale, and sold all 69 homes in just three weeks. Given the relatively limited supply of townhouses in town, sales for Glenpark Row are now buoyant too. “We just released three buildings for a total of 15 units and sold 13 of them in one day,” he said.

Warkentin added that, given that traffic is becoming a headache in the Lower Mission area to the south, buyers are impressed with Glenpark Row’s connection to downtown Kelowna and the airport, approximately 10 minutes each way.

What buyers of Glenpark Row also get is views of the mountains, rolling hills, and nearby orchards in a quiet, residential neighborhood. Also popular is double car side-by-side parking for each unit, with enough space to park a pickup truck as well as a conventional sedan.

Visitors to the presentation center, which opened last month, also like the overall size of the three-story houses, which range from 1,440 square feet to 1,500 square feet, with the 64-square-foot flexible space on the ground floor with a window. VanMar offers the conversion of bedrooms and offices as an optional upgrade.
