    With the ever increasing cost of owning a home in Vancouver, it is worth buyers travelling across the straight to the harbourfront city of Nanaimo 20 minutes by seaplane or 90 minutes by ferry, where you can purchase a very nice newer condo or townhome for around $225,000, or a single family home starting at $330,000 with executive homes in the $400,00 to $700,000 range. The cost of a walk-on foot passenger ferry is approximately $15.00 one way and the commuting time provides the opportunity to enjoy breakfast, exercise, review emails, prepare reports or work on projects.

    Waterfront townhomes or executive ocean view single family homes start from approximately $500,000 and up. Nanaimo has a lovely seawall, multiple marinas, yacht club, fresh air, unlimited recreation, boating, fishing, golfing and direct flights to Vancouver and Alberta daily. Snow skiers and boarders can travel one hour up island to Mt.Washington with similar conditions to Whistler.

    The downtown core and Brechin area are enjoying great economic development,, discussions with the Hilton for a new luxury waterfront hotel, a float home village with commercial/residential residences and the Vancouver Island University is becoming well recognised for it's high level of education and international student programs.

    Here you can enjoy an exceptional lifestyle and affordable home ownership. To learn more about Nanaimo, contact Sandy Clark at 460 Realty Group on 250-668-9878 or go to

    The Sunshine Coast also has great prices and is only a 40 minute ferry ride from Vancouver and a 15 minute float plane ride to either Vancouver harbor or airport.

    your all fools. Rent for 1600.00 in a million dollar neighbourhood and buy revenue property in other lower cost places to pay for your rent and have a couple of extra thousand more left over. Home ownership in Vancouver is a scam.
    Nanaimo come on. Maybe buy revenue in Nanaimo but travel back and forth.
