Vancouver Island Real Estate

Lorne Gait             Associate Broker

Lorne Gait and his team are Vancouver Island Real Estate Experts ready to help you with your real estate needs.  For the past several years, Vancouver Island has been experiencing a Seller’s Market where Buyers are here to Buy and Seller’s have seen rapidly rising prices.  However, due to significant inflation of house prices and and of many other commodities, the Bank of Canada is in process of raising interest rates.  We are now entering a time where the Sellers may not have the same advantage they have had in the past number of years.  In fact, it is now a balanced market at best and likely heading to a Buyer’s market.


    Interest Rates

The bank of Canada is certainly now raising rates due to inflation.  Lorne is happy to talk with you about interest rates.  However, if you have lots of questions, we can refer you to a good mortgage broker.  A mortgage broker can help you navigate your way through this time of change.

    Generational Transfer

The second is the transition of real estate from one generation to the next.  Lots of young families want homes and yards in which to raise their families.  Lots of 55 plus folks want smaller yards and less work to do.


The third trend is the need new comers to Canada have for housing.   Canada has good immigration programs that attract folks who have money to invest in real estate.   These trends have led to a massive shortage of housing from the East Coast to the West Coast in Canada.   There is a huge need for affordable and entry level housing.

    Moving to suburbs

The final trend which is specific to  Vancouver Island is the movement of folks from urban to rural/suburban areas.  Vancouver Island gives its residents many perks.  Quality of life is high with clean air, year round recreational opportunities, and the most moderate climate in Canada.   Vancouver Island is a great place to retire and to raise families.  Pace of life is reasonable.   Access to Vancouver and other parts of Canada are plentiful with BC ferries and great airport availability.

Because of these trends, Vancouver Island Buyers want to Buy on Vancouver Island.

If you need help with your sale or purchase Lorne Gait and his sales team can help you navigate safety protocols and assist you toward your real estate goals in this interesting time period.  Let’s get in touch . . .
