There’s just something about Vancouver Island…
The communities are colorful and quirky and fringed by rugged wilderness. The locals are incredibly friendly and proud of where they live. But perhaps the greatest attraction of the island is the fact you can feel miles away from the hustle and bustle of mainland Vancouver, yet have required amenities at your fingertips. There was a time, admittedly, when only retirees could afford to move to Vancouver Island. But thanks to a growing economy and a reasonable cost of living, it is now an option for single professionals and families looking for a more peaceful and natural lifestyle.
What are some other reasons people are moving to Vancouver Island?
Excellent Housing Prices
Vancouver Island real estate is more affordable than properties on the mainland. You’re apt to pay almost exactly twice as much for a single-family detached home on the mainland as you will here on the island. Moving to Vancouver Island means kicking your lifestyle up a notch or two, because even the waterfront homes, you know, the ones boasting the spectacular views, are incredibly affordable and typically cost less than a home in the suburbs of Vancouver.
World-Class Outdoor Recreation
Enough cannot be said about the natural beauty of this island. You can live here for 10 years and still feel awe and inspiration each day. Beaches are calm and uncrowded, forests are lush and populated with towering trees, waters are warm, clear, and perfect for swimming, fishing, windsurfing and kayaking.
Art and Culture
Vancouver Island has a vibrant art scene with numerous opportunities to experience Aboriginal culture. Artists and artisans from all over the world have been drawn to the picturesque beauty of the island and the tranquil lifestyle. There are art studios and galleries in most of the local communities that exhibit and sell original art and craftwork. We also have a plethora of theatre and musical performances each year that take place both indoors and at outdoor venues.
While our Vancouver Island properties are located in numerous towns and communities, some of the most popular areas on the island to live are:
