6 reasons to invest in Victoria BC.
Victoria, while more expensive than our neighbor to the north, Nanaimo, is still very affordable when compared to larger metropolitan areas like Vancouver. The greater Victoria area has many suburbs offering reasonably priced homes to suit most budgets, including condos, townhomes or single family dwellings.
Low interest rates.
Interest rates remain low even after a slight increase in late 2016. Rates have been holding steady since then so, for qualified individuals, financing is available at a fairly low cost. Buyers can afford to purchase a home that meets all their needs and requirements.
Doctors, dentists, chiropractors and many other medical professionals are all easily accessible, with holistic and natural practitioners available as well. Victoria has two hospitals offering world class care, with Victoria General Hospital and Royal Jubilee Hospital providing some of the best medical care on Vancouver Island.
