EVOLUTION of your Lot
Buying a RV lot as a family vacation spot at a RV campground is a great way to have family fun time. However, owning a RV campground lot also presents some problems. First, at most RV resorts, you do not have a clear title to the property, if you do get clear title the lot is zoned recreational so you can never develop or build on it. Your lot at Whispering Pines is fully titled and deeded to you. At Whispering Pines, you have the ability and the lot zoning that allows you to remove your RV and replace it with a large modular home (990 sq.ft.) or you can place or build a cottage or cabin on the lot, You can even build or place a residential home complete with a full basement and a 2 car garage. (NO BUILDING COMMITMENT DATE)

YOU OWN YOUR LOT, YOU DECIDE THE DWELLING (AND THE TIMELINE)
APPRECIATION of your Investment
Buying a RV leisure campsite in Alberta is a major investment. In most cases, you pay upwards of $100,000 or more at start up resorts that are showing you pictures of the amenities they are promising you. Regardless of the RV resort you choose, someday you’re going to sell your lot, especially if this lot does not offer development options past being a family campsite. Ten years or fifteen years from now, when the kids are grown and gone, family camping is done, your planning the empty nester phase of your life, perhaps looking at your snowbird as well as possible Alberta / downsizing / retirement options. At this point the summer campsite you purchased is no longer the place for you. So you decide you want to sell. When that happens, who is your buyer? In most cases, it will probably be a younger family with young kids and a RV, who are looking for a recreational RV campsite for their family to enjoy.
You paid close to $100,000.00 ten or fifteen years back and you’re hoping this investment has appreciated in value. But how much will this young family fork over to buy a campsite? When property is zoned recreational use only so they probably won`t get clear title to the property. They will only be use it 16-20 weeks a year, they can never build on it, they will never be able to develop it and finally they can`t finance it.
Whispering Pines Scenario: Instead, ten years ago, you purchased a RV leisure site in a gated golf and lake resort development, at you paid the approximately the same price. There was a multitude or indoor, outdoor, land and water amenities in place for the whole family to enjoy starting from day one. You were able to use your place weekends 52-weeks a year, you started new holidays traditions like Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas break at the lake. You had city water quality drinking water, paved roads, in a gated, maintenance free community.
Why Sell? This is the Perfect Summer Snowbird Resort: The kids are grown and gone, your looking at places in warmer climates to spend the winters and you’ve started talking about selling your home and downsizing to a place that offers you a carefree “condo-lifestyle” so you can come and go whenever you want. Well years back when you decided to buy your RV campsite for your young family at Whispering Pines that’s exactly what you bought.

Owners here also have a much wider variety of choices, so you can have a place that fits your needs.
