About Lake Country

Lake Country

Lake Country is one of BC’s fastest growing communities, situated half-way between Kelowna and Vernon, just 10 minutes from Kelowna International Airport. Lake Country comprises Winfield, Okanagan Center, Oyama, and Carrs Landing.

Winfield is the hub of Lake Country with expanding commercial development, a selection of wineries, new residential areas and a middle school in the works.

Oyama is the northernmost part of Lake Country and enjoys large lots, acreage, agriculture, and vast views of both Wood Lake and Kalamalka Lakes. Oyama has its own traditional elementary school, convenience store, and small town feel. Both Carr’s Landing and Okanagan Centre feature large lots and a rural atmosphere. These are excellent communities for those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of urban life.

Frequently Asked Questions

I want to buy my first home in Kelowna. How do I start?
+

Start by getting pre-approved for a mortgage. Pre-approval informs you of exactly how much you can spend and locks you in at the current interest rate for 90 days or more. This will let you browse properties knowing exactly what your budget is, which is particularly important when considering potential interest rate increases that can be set by the Bank of Canada.

What is the “best“ time of year to buy a home?
+

Don’t wait for the “perfect” time to buy, it simply doesn’t exist. Prices are determined by many factors, such as supply and demand, the overall economy, and many other housing market conditions. The impact of these factors varies not just from city to city, but even neighbourhoods. The best indicator to focus on, when assessing your negotiating power as a buyer, is numbers of days on market for a particular property. Generally speaking, the longer it’s been on the market, the more likely the seller will be to negotiate the price!

What is mortgage loan insurance and how does it work?
+

Many people believe that mortgage loan insurance protects the borrower, but that isn’t true! The purpose of Mortgage loan insurance is to protect the lender in case the borrower defaults on their payments. Because of this, lenders will take our insurance based on factors such as the down payment percentage, and pass those costs on to the homebuyer/borrower, to be paid either in installments or upfront.
