From Tourist to Resident, Vancouver Island Draws Visitors to Real Estate Market

Posted on Oct 22, 2017

Traveling to Vancouver Island as a tourist typically means taking in the ocean air at one of the many beaches or beach resorts, hiking along forest trails or mountain peaks, biking, paddling, golfing or taking on any number of active adventures. With world class spas and restaurants, finding time to relax is easy.

The natural beauty – combined with a mild climate year-round, friendly towns and multiple recreating activities – is also turning many tourists into full time residents!  Watch some video highlights here.

A recent article in the Calgary Herald highlights this trend in the Comox Valley:

“When people come into the recreation centre, we ask, ‘are you visiting or new to the area?’” says Leah Knutson, The Village of Cumberland’s manager of recreation. “Fifty per cent are visitors, and we say, ‘watch out, you are going to end up living here.’”

The Calgary Herald heard that many new Comox Valley residents were attracted to the area because of the active, outdoor lifestyle, including surfing, paddle boarding or fishing on the lake or ocean, rock climbing, or skiing at Mount Washington.

The Ridge is a new residential development in the City of Courtenay, in the Comox Valley on the east coast of Vancouver Island.
