Many homes on the Sunshine Coast – especially homes located outside the downtown cores of Gibsons and Sechelt - use a septic tank and drain field for sewage disposal. This can present a puzzle to some buyers who are relocating from urban areas typically serviced bysewer systems. They’re unfamiliar with septic systems and therefore at a disadvantage. That’s where a local RE/MAX Oceanview agent can help. We know how these systems work and that they’re generally a reliable and environmentally sound way of sewage disposal. However, it is a specialized area of expertise and standards continue to upgrade. That is why we always recommend a professional inspection by a qualified practitioner, just to ensure the system is functioning properly and to identify any repairs that may be needed. By explaining to buyers ahead of time what they can expect we can often set aside any misgivings they may have. Do you have real estate questions? Call your RE/MAX Oceanview Agent FIRST!!!
