Get Out There and Enjoy Outdoor Adventures From Your New Home in Ladysmith

Posted on Aug 14, 2019

Homebuyers who are relocating to or within BC on Canada’s West Coast are more frequently looking to smaller communities on Vancouver Island, and real estate markets in towns like Ladysmith are seeing the benefits. In particular, active retirees make up a large portion of new residents in smaller Vancouver Island communities, and builders are building homes and communities designed to accommodate their wishes and also to take advantage of everything Island life has to offer.

Relocating from expensive cities such as Vancouver and Victoria to Ladysmith offers owners a break from both big-city life and big-city real estate prices. People are also moving from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario. These buyers tend to be active and want to live in Ladysmith to enjoy the warmer weather and outdoor lifestyle.
