Victoria has been British Columbia's capital city since 1868. The Capital Regional District (or "CRD" as it is commonly referred to) is composed of thirteen distinct municipalities on the southern tip of Vancouver Island. The municipalities include Victoria, Oak Bay, Esquimalt, North Saanich and the Saanich peninsula, View Royal, Langford, Colwood, Metchosin, Sooke, Sidney, the Highlands and Saltspring Island. Real estate varies substantially in price depending upon the specific area yet all enjoy year round clement weather (the warmest winters in Canada) and it is very hard to find any real estate that is further than 3 kilometers from the ocean. Many houses have ocean views and are within walking distance to access beaches.
The Greater Victoria city population was reported at around 80,017, counting only the real estate within the greater Victoria boundary. The CRD all together has a population of around 351,000 making it the 15th largest metropolitan center within Canada. Real estate is varied with a mixture of urban condominiums (condos), apartments and rental units, many residential houses, duplexes and in the outlying areas, many acreages with single family dwellings or farm operations.
Vancouver Island is less than 100 kms from Vancouver, British Columbia's largest city, and is serviced by multiple ferry routes, airplane, seaplane, and a special Victoria-Vancouver passenger ferry. Via the Blackball ferry line to Port Angeles, WA, the greater Victoria area offers easy access to Seattle, Anacortes and other US destinations. The Victoria Airport in North Saanich offers multiple daily international flights to the US and other destinations including San Francisco, Portland, Seattle and Los Angeles.
Victoria is a very demographically balanced city with many real estate choices ranging from first time home buyer options and student accomodations to some of the most exquisite mansions in all of Canada. A real estate listing in Metchosin, the Swanwick Ranch, was listed in early 2021 for a whopping $14.1 million. Conversely, starter homes on lots are available in the outlying municipalities from low $200,000's. Given the current mortgage rates, home ownership is affordable to almost anyone.
The greater Victoria Real Estate Board (VREB) uses the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) to compile reports on many statistics about homes and realtors. In March 2021, a total of 1,173 properties sold in the Victoria Real Estate Board region. This figure represents a 92.9 per cent increase over the same period the prior year and 35 per cent more than February, 2021. Sales of condominiums were also up 111.8 per cent from March 2020 with 377 units sold. Sales of single family homes were up 88.2 per cent from last march with over 574 real estate transactions in that category alone. We have reprinted some of these on our about Real Estate Market Report pages.
These selected properties show some of the variety and breadth of real estate listing types in the greater Victoria area. Prices range from a few hundred thousand to over ten million dollars, representing a very diverse range of choices. The search form may be used to narrow listing choices or present the entire listings in the region.
