Summerland is one of the most photographed south Okanagan cities and a quick drive through the center of town will indicate why. There is jaw dropping scenery at every turn. The business district on the north side of the highway looks like it was carved from the dry volcanic hills that surround it. Summerland, BC is the epitome of summer all year long and is home to over 11k permanent residents.
Due to its close proximity and affordability, Summerland is a bedroom community for both Penticton and Kelowna commuters. There are also over 11k residents who are fortunate to call Summerland home year round. There are lots of options for empty nesters, retirees and single family home hunters all in a mix of idyllic country and urban settings. It’s hard not to get a view of mountains, lake, meadows or farm from most neighbourhoods in Summerland. The hardest part of moving to Summerland is choosing which view is better!
Summerland has a thriving fruit and wine making economy. Like many south Okanagan communities the beautiful scenery is a by product of many generations of farmers putting in hard work year after year to prune, shape, form and farm their parcels of land. Most commercial real estate is seen in the form of agricultural farm land. These parcels can range in size from small one acre plots to ambitious tracts upwards of 30 acres and pricing can be anywhere in between. The economy in Summerland is ripe with opportunity, since it is located so close to the US border, an international airport and the cities of Penticton and Kelowna. Within the city limits of Summerland is the world-class Pacific Agricultural Research Centre attracting highly educated workforce to the community. There is also an industrial park and plenty of turnkey opportunities in the downtown core.
