Restricted Resale Units Now Available!

Published:

The Nelson Commons, Kootenay Co-op and the City of Nelson are excited to offer Restricted Resale housing for the first time in Nelson. This program is being made possible by financial contributions from Kootenay Co-op and VanCity Credit Union, and by an agreement with the City of Nelson to manage the units. We have designated two 1-bedroom and one 2-bedroom condominium units as Restricted Resale units. These units will be sold to purchasers who meet the criteria set out in our Restricted Resale Condominium Program.

The purchaser will receive a price reduction of 25% below the market list price. Upon resale, the unit will be appraised and the resale price will be reduced by 25% of the appraised value. All restricted resale units must be owner-occupied and will remain in the restricted resale program in perpetuity.
