Parkbridge Lifestyle Communities Launches Community Enhancement Program

SURREY, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - May 5, 2014) - Parkbridge Lifestyle Communities Inc. (Parkbridge), Canada's leading owner, operator and developer of land lease communities, announced today the launch of their community enhancement program including the presentation of new and beautifully renovated homes in three of their family-oriented Surrey, BC communities. In a characteristically expensive market, Parkbridge is pleased to offer the opportunity to own a new or renovated 2 or 3 bedroom home in the Lower Mainland starting from under $80,000.

"We're excited to have the opportunity to offer affordable housing in the Lower Mainland. Due to the expensive housing market often home ownership is unattainable. With our new and substantially renovated three bedroom homes offered at a third of the price of a typical home in the area we're proud to be changing that and making home ownership possible, and affordable," said Lachlan MacLean, Director of BC Operations, Parkbridge Lifestyle Communities.

To launch the community enhancement program Parkbridge is hosting information sessions at their three Surrey, B.C. communities where the public can come and learn from industry experts about how to buy, renovate, and finance a home in a family-oriented Parkbridge community. Industry experts and topics will include:

  • Renovating:
    • Bart Deildal, Field Supervisor, Manufactured Home Makeover
  • Buying:
    • Sharon Lenning, Realtor, MacDonald Realty
  • Living in Parkbridge Community:

  • Financing - Purchasing & Renovating:
