  • [2:40] What is going on in Deep Cove today?
    • Both tourism and residential growth have skyrocketed. 
    • The district is looking to control traffic and parking but I don’t think they will be able to find a perfect fit. 
    • If you’re planning to live in Deep Cove, just be aware that it is a popular spot for tourists and others from around the Lower Mainland to spend the day.

    • Cove Gardens was built a couple of years ago. 
    • Cates Landing project is almost done phase one. 
    • Over the next 5 years, you will see around 5 new developments.

  • [7:30] What areas of Deep Cover are in demand? 
    • It depends on the person. If you want the village feel the Cove is a great spot. If you want to be alone the outskirts can be a great place for peace and quiet. 
  • [8:10] How is the market?
    • Deep Cove has a very limited inventory right now. It’s not hard to sell.
