I own condos in Victoria and I have sold several condos in different neighborhoods in Victoria. When clients ask me “Shirin where should I buy a condo in Victoria?”. The first thing I do is listen to all the questions they have…
“Shirin, should we buy a condo Downtown Victoria? or should we buy a condo in Victoria that is waterfront and further away from the Downtown Core?”
My first response is, “What is your budget? and what are you looking to do with this condo? Do you want to "look at a condo for sale downtown Victoria", so you can rent it out, or do you want a condo for sale that is waterfront, so you can retire in it? what is the end goal of purchasing this condo?”
For clients that have a strict budget and they want additional features, I always encourage them to look at buying a condo in other parts of Victoria. There are condos for sale in Langford (which is a 20 minute drive to Downtown Victoria when there is no traffic). Now, these condos may not be waterfront but guess what? They are newer and larger condos that meet their preference.
Having said all of the above though, personally I do like buying a condo downtown Victoria, because ultimately as a top realtor in Victoria, I have to give you the best advice and the best advice is “Location, Location, Location”. Buying a condo downtown Victoria and buying a condo that is closer to the waterfront in Victoria will give you a higher return in the long term.
There are several key points I need to assess when you are looking to buy a condo in Victoria. Contact me to discuss your scenario and rest assured you are in good hands. I care about my clients and you will hear me say “I only let my clients buy a home, I know I would buy for myself”.
