From a birds eye view, this large area is sparsely decorated with homes for sale. Larger oceanfront estates require extensive exposure and longer on the market.
Since new legislation came into effect that was aimed at real estate speculation and foreign buyers, and declining luxury markets in other major Canadian cities, this Saanich neighbourhood retracted slightly in 2019. For 2020, the local BC assessments have dropped significantly but the luxury segment has rebounded. After an influx of buyer activity in June 2020, there are more sales above $2,000,000 this year (4) than at any point in the last decade.
