Skyrocketing Real Estate Demand on Southern Vancouver Island

Growth is forecast to continue to rise at record rates.


A recent report from Colliers International entitled “Victoria CMA & Western Communities Population & Housing Growth 2020 to 2041” highlighted the need for a steep increase in affordable housing and the incredible opportunity for real estate investing on Southern Vancouver Island which accompanies that demand.

The 2016 Census revealed a pattern of astonishing growth in Southern Island areas known as the “Westshore Communities” -including Langford, Metchosin, Colwood and Sooke – which has exponentially exceeded growth in the City of Victoria, in great part as homeowners seek more affordable Vancouver Island housing. And that growth is forecast to continue to rise at record rates as Colliers predicts that an additional 19,225 residential homes will be in demand in the Westshore Communities by 2030, with that figure jumping to 38,400 by 2041.

According to Statistics British Columbia, average household size in the Westshore Communities will be between 2.12 and 2.5 people, meaning that the need for condos, townhomes, starter homes and seniors housing will be at the forefront of demand, positioning the Langford Gateway project perfectly for this influx of buyers. And the demand will be strong as anticipated inventory in the Westshore Communities falls well below the mark – of those predicted 38,400 new dwellings required by 2041, currently planned new construction will only provide forecasted housing for a mere 1,200 individuals.
