As of today, it is showing 721 active listings. I am not sure if every agency's listing is up; however, a quick test of the north end of the peninsula makes me think it pretty thorough. He has nicely indicated where prices have been reduced, too.


I just tested the 'Waterfront' and 'View' features on that map and my property price estimates above are pretty accurate. The waterfront properties below $1 million all look like older wood homes (cabins) so you would want to check those out for mould, wood rot and carpenter ants. Also, water supply is important in rural areas. The Middlepoint area in Pender Harbour had an arsenic problem - an issue when I was there and I am not sure how they dealt with it.

The view homes under $500,000 look like they are all on elevated land away from the water but there are some incredible views to be had in some areas like Gibsons and Oracle Heights and Porpoise Bay in Sechelt. However, some of these newer homes in the new subdivisions particularly in Tyler Heights in Sechelt are pretty cheaply constructed.

The problem with some areas like Sandy Hook and Tuwanek in the District of Sechelt and Garden Bay in Pender Harbour is the drive - all one way in and one way out. In the winter with all the ups, downs and bends, it can be really brutal.

Current active listings on Sunshine Coast is 766. Of those, 486 have had at least one price change in the past 18 months. This is according to the realty link site which I scrape daily.
