Sunshine Coast Real Estate

For many years, the Sunshine Coast has been touted as “British Columbia’s best kept secret” – and for good reason.  For most, the decision to transition into an laid-back island lifestyle is an easy one. From the family purchasing their first Sunshine Coast home to empty nesters looking for their retirement castle, the picturesque views and relaxed attitude attract people of all ages and because of this, Sunshine Coast real estate is always popular and in high demand. There are also a wide selection of waterfront and luxury homes available on the Sunshine Coast.

The Sunshine Coast is also very rich in culture, making it attractive to many artists and art lovers. In fact, it is home to the largest population of crafters and artists in Canada.  This comes as no surprise, with views as beautiful as this; inspiration is an easy thing to come by.  

Music is also a way of life here – many of the Sunshine Coast’s residents enjoy yearly festivals such as The Gibsons Landing Jazz Festival or the Pender Harbour Blues Festival.  Live music venues can also be found in just about every community.

Its close proximity to both the ocean and the mountains provides the best of both worlds for the outdoor adventure enthusiast - the Sunshine Coast offers an abundance of outdoor activities. From skiing in the winter to fishing and golfing in the summer, there is something to suit just about anyone’s taste.

The real estate in the Sunshine Coast is split into three separate and unique municipalities: Powell River, Sechelt and Gibsons.

At one point, home to the world’s largest pulp and paper mill, Powell River is the largest of the municipalities, with a population of 13,165 residents. This seaside community is the ideal location for the outdoor enthusiast as its all-natural backdrop of both mountain terrain and ocean waters provide an endless array of exciting activities.

Situated on the lower half of the Sunshine Coast, Sechelt’s residents enjoy a landscape rich in natural beauty.  In recent years, Sechelt has become an attractive destination for those looking to spend their golden years in a relaxing and beautiful location. Statistics Canada has found that most of its residents are in fact, over the age of 45. As a result, there has been a surge of more upscale communities in the municipality.  

With an emphasis on its placement by the sea, Gibsons is the ultimate destination for those who prefer a life by the ocean. Gibsons’ splendor has also garnished international attention as the filming location for many movies and TV shows throughout the years. If that isn’t enough to get you to pack your bags, in 2009, Gibsons was named “The most livable community in the World” at the international Livcom awards.
