Victoria has seen an increase in both the selling prices as well as the volume of sales over the last year making 2016 a record year for real estate. Unlike the other major centres we are lucky to have some of the best value properties in Canada with Victoria being one of the most desired cities to live and work or retire and play.
The average home value has hit a benchmark of $766,000 with many of the outlining municipalities seeing increases as well as people are looking for the more competitively priced homes or just that there are more single family new homes being constructed.
When looking to purchase a house, condo, or townhouse in Victoria it is best to have an agent that will work hard for you and provide current information and insight to getting the best home for the best price.
Victoria is rated as the one of the best places to live, work or retire in Canada and it is easy to understand why. With a strong economy which consists of hitech industry and manufacturing, tourism, government and military as some of the largest employers. Victoria has one of the lowest unemployment rates in Canada and because of Victoria's desirability there is a shortage of rental housing making Victoria an ideal place to invest in real estate.

Some of the most amazing Golf courses are located in the Greater Victoria Area from the exclusive Victoria and Uplands Golf courses that are member clubs to some of the most scenic and challenging public courses like Highland Pacific and Olympic View and of course the world famous Jack Nicholas designed Bear Mountain 36 hole golf course located on the Westshore. Being an avid golfer myself and having enjoyed almost all of the courses here in Victoria I do focus on many golf course related properties.
