When I think about affordable home prices for the average income in Victoria BC. I think of homes that are for sale under $ 600 000. It is not easy if you think about it, to have a mortgage on a home that is priced over half a million. You do not want to stretch yourself too thin as a home owner. You want to get into an affordable price range while enjoying a normal life. You do want to live pay cheque to pay cheque all while trying to pay off that mortgage.
Now even though, my clients may want to buy a home in Victoria for under 600 000 I always encourage to sign to see homes over 600 000 a well, becaue you never know which of those homes can negotiate their price to being under 600 000. You do not want to miss out on those opportunities as well.
A newer home in the price range of 600 000 will be further out from the Victoria Downtown core, almost taking you to Happy Valley in Langford or as fas as the Sooke. If you are ok, with driving over the Malahat, even more affordable homes would be found in Shawnigan Lake and Mill Bay.
If you do not mind being in an older home or a fixer upper, than of course you may be able to find a home closer to downtown, in Esquimalt, Mayfair area, or even View Royal neighbourhoods.
But before I keep going on in this blog post ha ha , what type of a home are you looking for? A condo, townhouse, duplex or a detached home....Remember a home can mean many things :-) . Lets talk soon.
