Waterfront Waterview Homes For Sale on the Westshore BC.

West Shore

Waterfront Waterview homes For Sale on the Westshore BC, have a very special appeal to those thinking about moving to our little corner of paradise, we call Greater Victoria on Vancouver Island BC Canada.

Being on an Island (even at the size Vancouver Island is) the water, the ocean, beaches, rocks, boating, fishing, snorkeling, sailing, beach-combing, etc. are never far away from anything and everything you may be doing on a daily base.

The Westshore Communities include: The Highlands, Langford, Colwood, Metchosin and Sooke, and runs from the Start of the Malahat to Port Renfrew along the West coast of Vancouver Island.

An estimate indicates that there may be as many as 300 different ocean front beaches from the Malahat all the way around thru Todd Inlet in Central Saanich, Sidney to Oak Bay and up and including past Sooke to Port Renfrew.

In addition there are the many lakes, inlets, rivers and creeks. In Short one could argue that Waterfront & Waterview Homes are pretty common in the Greater Victoria Area, and you might be correct, however Waterfront & Waterview homes are never under-appreciated for their vista’s, light, depth of views, the sunrises and or the sunsets.IMG_0552

Waterfront Waterview homes also offer this amazing sense of living inside of nature, the weather, closer to the birds, clouds and all that happens on or near the water.

Granted, technically there are very few if any true waterfront homes for sale on the Westshore BC (meaning you own the land into the water) as the “Crown” controls most of the true waterfront and all of the foreshore rights. For argument sake the local real estate industry has adopted a relatively “lose” interpretation of the word “Waterfront”, to typically mean that there is no other property held privately between the subject home and the waterfront… So that could mean that there might just be the beach, or a trail, and possibly even a road or a park between the property and the water.

When we compare Waterfront Waterview homes for sale on the Westshore BC with None Waterfront & Waterview homes in the same areas you will find that the homes are typically larger, offer more outdoor decking and viewing areas (although outside areas may often be under used due to cooler temperatures off the water). One significant difference will be the price/value differences between homes with or without Waterfront & Waterview for sale on the Westshore BC.

It is nearly impossible to provide any reliable value difference indication although within Condominium Suite or Town-home developments one can find the best indications because of the fact that the homes are often very similar. Within one complex we know that the value difference is strictly based on the fact the home is Waterfront or Waterview and we have seen price differences of 50 to 60% between Waterfront Waterview homes and those homes in the same complex without Waterfront or Waterview.

The appreciation and attraction from living in a Waterfront or Waterview home is very personal, some love it, some are ambivalent about it, and a few will try to avoid living at or near the water.

The Weather at or near Waterfront Waterview homes it is always a bit cooler, a bit more wind and exposure to the elements, which is nice in the summer, and can also offer some very dramatic vista’s during some of our Fall or Winter Storms1p 6900  Ball no shadow.

Snorkeling...?!?!  In BC...?!?!  I'd need a massive wetsuit to do that!  ;)  Beautiful beaches and views....but I'd stay on the land myself, I'm a chicken for cold!
