Prince Edward Island Real Estate Explained!

Prince Edward Island is a small island located 13 km off the east coast of Canada. It is connected to the mainland by the Confederation Bridge as well as ferry and air. While Prince Edward Island is the smallest province in Canada it isn't small on scenery or lifestyle, and the Prince Edward Island waterfront real estate market is strong. Prince Edward Island, the Emerald Isle, is a great place to retire, holiday, or even use as a summer retreat from the hustle and bustle of big city life. Prince Edward Island waterfront real estate is plentiful due to the long jagged coastline and bays and inlets of the island. There is always something new just around the corner and PEI properties and PEI homes are readily available, always beautiful and well-kept, as well as being very affordable. Many visitors to Prince Edward Island, and there are upwards of a million in the summer, choose to enter the Prince Edward Island real estate market and buy a PEI property or PEI home of their own using it for their own vacation as well as netting a return on investment by renting it to other vacationers when not using it themselves.

The Prince Edward Island real estate market is generally though to divide into two distinct categories. There is the local market which includes PEI home owners, islanders generally who live and work here with their families year-round, buying a PEI home or other PEI property for their own use.

More and more those wishing to be summer residents of Prince Edward Island buy into some of the excellent Prince Edward Island real estate developments such as Sunset Dunes, Granville on the Water and Sunbury Cove.
