Real Estate Market in Nanaimo, BC

As diverse as the history and the economy is here, so is the real estate market. Buying in Nanaimo provides residents with incredible views and access to the Strait of Georgia, sandy, coastal homes, and peaceful bays with marina access.

When considering what to buy in Nanaimo, buyers have numerous options. Along the outskirts of town are larger properties many that are still farmland. This is also where many new developments are springing up in Nanaimo. For more traditional housing, select properties in the historic district and downtown areas. Homes are smaller but offer more traditional features. Many homes were built in the 1970's through the 1990's. As a result, modern, stylish homes are also available in various neighborhoods within the city.

 

Home values are growing year-after-year in Nanaimo but remain affordable. The average selling price for real estate in October of 2015 was $380,054, which is about a 1% increase from the previous year. In the same month, about 380 homes were for sale, significantly lower than the 443 from the previous year. This shows the demand for real estate in Nanaimo and the surrounding areas. From single-family homes with 2 and 3 bedrooms (some of the most popular), to large, luxurious estates on spacious parcels of land, numerous options exist in this area.

    One of the most convenient locations in Nanaimo! Within a short walk to Country Club Mall, on a bus route, near the Public Access on the shores of Long Lake, and handy to so many restaurants, is where you'll find this immaculate condo. Being a top floor and corner unit allows for peace and quiet (even though the building is extremely quiet anyway), and has a large deck. One bedroom and a den (den has no closet but can easily be used as a bedroom), new fridge, new hot water tank, and very reasonable strata fees make this a winner. The building is well managed and maintained, with a recent roof, and new carpets and paint throughout all common areas. Shared laundry on the main floor is kept extremely clean as well. Rentals are allowed, as well as one cat. Currently has a lease in place till August 31/18 with a rental income of $700 per month. (id:2493) More details
