Bowen Island/Gulf Islands - help please?

RE: Gulf Islands - help please?
Hey, Jimmy, I am glad that the “Univs.ca” site has proved helpful and that Navier was able to lend a hand, too.

I am sorry for not responding again sooner, but I took a much needed break and now am trying to get caught up on Jan/Feb SC stats, etc.

As you said above, it would be great if there was a site like ‘Vancouver Price Drop” that you could turn to. ‘Observer’ has been collecting that data for years and I hazard to think how huge his spreadsheets must be by now. There may be someone out there who has been doing the same for Bowen Island, but how do you find him/her?

In searching for info after your first post here, I did stumble upon a Bowen Island forum and came across a post that may be of interest to you. It is dated January 23, 2014 and some of the replies are interesting. Maybe you could try posting your own questions there. If anyone is going to be interested in how sales are going on the Island, it definitely would be a local.

I also stumbled upon a 2010 UBC thesis titled “Dwelling, tourism and sustainability on the rural-urban fringe: a Bowen Island case study” (ROFLOL, that title sounds like something VanPeak Moderator, RFM, would come up with). Actually, I did glance through it and it's interesting. It's a 'pdf' file.

Vancouver Realtor Rob Chipman has some data on BI - the most recent is Jan 16, 2014. You will notice in the column on the right Bowen Island leads the list and you could keep checking for more recent data.

I also found another Realtor, Penny Naldrett, who makes BI her specialty. Here’s her website and here is her blog. The latter offers BI market updates; unfortunately. the last post was in August, 2013 but it may be helpful (check out the ‘Categories’ in the right column).

Finally, I'm attaching two .pdf docs to this post. I was able to access them from an older Naldrett website via Google ‘cache’. One is a 2011 ‘in review’ market update and the other is BI 2011 1st quarter market report released Aug 15, 2011. Both have BI ‘Average’ Price data going back to 2005. There is no individual property info, but the docs will give you a good overall picture that you can build on.

That's about all I can offer you, mate. Maybe more visitors to VanPeak will chip in. Keep us informed of what you find out there, Jimmy, and add to the thread.
