tsawwassen heights

Tsawwassen Heights properties are homes in Tsawwassen which were purchased from Home Owners by BC Hydro.  The homes have either a Hydro Easement on the property and recently have had large towers on or nearby the properties.  BC Hydro has cleaned and maintained all the properties and are slowly introducing them to the Tsawwassen Market.  If you are Buying a home in Tsawwassen, you need to do your own research on these properties. 

When purchasing a powerline property in Tsawwassen it is wise to have your own representation with a local realtor.  The agents in the show centre are representing the seller and are not offering agent representation.  There is no cost  for my services to represent a Tsawwassen Homebuyer and I am able to guide you through the process of purchasing the right home with a well written contract, building inspection, legals, and mortgage pre-qualification.
