Property Consultation

Housing is in high demand in most communities on Vancouver Island. Consequently, many homeowners with large properties are considering subdividing their land to pull out some of the dormant value. Most municipalities are in favour of these subdivisions as they are looking to increase their housing supply; the real key in getting the most value out of this process is to assess the best use of the property and what type of building lots are in demand for housing in the local area.

It’s possible that many homeowners don’t have this information available to them. This could limit the uses of the new lots if they are applying for zoning that is not favourable to builders, or agreeing to conditions or setbacks that restrict the end use and ultimate value of the land.
At Harbour Oak Homes we are very familiar with the subdivision and rezoning processes of the local municipalities. We have worked with staff and councils to achieve successful rezoning and subdivision applications for our own projects and those of our clients. We can review your property size, current zoning, potential subdivision and/or rezoning possibilities to draft a plan to maximize your property value.

Contact us today to book an initial consultation to review your property and it’s potential for a subdivision and/or rezoning application.

Cost Plus Construction RATES

A ‘fixed price’ contract will provide an exact dollar amount for the work to be completed as per plans but does not allow for any extra work requested during construction or for any hidden issues with the home that may be uncovered along the way. A ‘cost plus’ contract allows for my flexibility of design and finishing materials during construction and the ability to deal with unforeseen issues more easily. We typically find that a ‘cost plus’ style contract works better for renovations and additions to existing homes as there will usually be some issues encountered during construction and changes requested by the owners as the project takes shape and rooms move from lines on paper to actual spaces in front of us.
