To follow in the vein of my trip over there today, I'm going to put the question out there: where's the best place to buy over there right now - in your opinion. I've been searching the MLS listings from Lake Cowichan up to Campbell River for what's there. I quite like the Chemainus area and surrounds, whereas I used to be focused on the Comox Valley region. Having just escaped the dark, snowy Port Alberni valley, I can rule that one out forever.... Give me your ideas based on property taxes, congestion, riding & what have you. No Lower Mainlanders or such need respond.
