Cowichan Bay Firms a One Stop Shop for Real Estate Sales Worthy Custom Homes & Finance currently focuses on the Cowichan Valley BY DAVID HOLMES

OWICHAN BAY – Purchasing a home is in all likelihood the largest single expense a person will ever undertake in their lives. For even experienced home purchasers it can be intimidating, confusing and a cause for sleepless nights. Worthy Custom Homes & Finance (WCHF) has developed a unique

approach that eliminates the stress and worry by serving as a literal one stop shop when purchasing a new home. “We’re definitely unique in this market, we’re certainly not a conventional real estate office,” explained company President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) David Salmon. “The company actually began in Victoria in 1999 where we were

primarily involved in the financial side of things, structuring creative real estate deals and offered private funding. From there we found a niche helping people that needed assistance with financing, such as people who couldn’t quite qualify for conventional financing. That group was our target market in the beginning.” Today the company has evolved

into an entity specializing in not merely organizing the financing of a new home, but also serving as the custom builder of the home itself, in addition to working as residential developers. Fully licensed, bonded and insured, Worthy Custom Homes & Finance can take a client through a l l of t h e s t a ge s of a home SEE WORTHY CUSTOM HOMES | PAGE 42
