Interested in Island Living? (CLICK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhkFCt1HekQ)

For those who have lived in Nanaimo for any length of time, they will happily provide you with a laundry list of reasons why one may consider making the ‘Harbour City’ home:

  • The great outdoors: Get a suntan on sandy Blueback Beach, check out the views atop Mt Benson, swim in the fresh, clean waters of the Nanaimo river or Westwood Lake, hike to the epic Ammonite Falls, or hop in a kayak or canoe and explore the assortment of islands nearby of the Nanaimo shoreline.
  • Reasonable property rates: Earn big city money but live in a market where it can go MUCH further – build your dream house, acquire an acreage, or have capital left over annually to invest. Despite recent growth and development, a similar home/neighborhood in Victoria or Vancouver will still cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars more.
  • Central Location: you’re a 90 minute ferry ride from Vancouver, a 90 minute drive from Victoria, and a 2 hour drive away from Tofino. Nanaimo affords the space of a small town without sacrificing the big-town amenities while keeping you within reaching distance from everything.
  • “Island Pace”: Traffic? What’s that? In fact, MANY therapists and professionals here are able to bike to work thanks to our cycle-friendly trails and roads. If you live within the city limits? Your likely at work within 7-10 minutes. Add that up week to week, month to month, and year to year. That’s ALLOT more time to be enjoying activities and spending time with your loved ones!
  • Shop till your drop! Nanaimo has been among the top of North American cities (per capita) for shopping opportunities for decades. Vancouver Island’s largest shopping centre (Woodgrove Centre) is in North Nanaimo, with a handful of other malls nearby as well as a great variety of smaller boutique shops that add depth and character to the consumer experience.
