Investing in Vancouver Island Waterfront

Investing in Vancouver Island Waterfront will be an investment in a very high quality asset that maintains its value even during downturns in the real estate market. When the market is hot, prices increase faster than non-waterfront properties and over the long-term a waterfront property will provide greater returns with greater security and satisfaction to the homeowner or investor. All across Canada and the United States, waterfront homes with ocean or lake frontage are worth on average more than 2x the value of similar homes not located on the water.

Limited availability, desireability and the association with a luxury lifestyle, especailly in urban areas conspire to keep waterfront prices higher than average with properties changing hands less often and between more discerning buyers. Affluent buyers choose lifestyle properties: lush vegetation, fresh breezes, superb wildlife, and the serenity of the water itself, waterfront homes give access to nature at it’s very finest.
