New Development Projects in Nanaimo

This page lists new home developments in Nanaimo that are bare land strata or regular strata (jump to list of developments). But what's the difference between strata and BARE LAND strata?

Bare Land Strata:
The owners have sole possession of their respective lots, and are entirely responsible for their own buildings. However, they may be subject to bylaws that govern their homes' placement, colours, materials, landscaping, fencing, etc. They pay strata fees, but those are generally lower because they only need to maintain the infrastructure shared by the homes (sewer, water, powerlines, etc.) plus any shared parkspace or other common facilities.

Regular Strata:
Each owner has exclusive right to their unit, but they have shares in the common property - which includes the walls and roof, the pipes and electric conduits, the building entrance, gazebos, parking lot, etc. The strata body takes care of most building and grounds maintenance.

If you have questions about any of this, please give me a call or email me.
