The seaside town of Comox has been steadily growing and attracting more people to relocate to this great area. Over the past two years prices have risen considerably but they remain a bargain to people who are used to dealing with mainland BC prices. Finding a home here has become more challenging due to lower inventory than normal but the choices are still wide ranging when they do become available. All homes for sale on the MLS in the town of Comox constitute most of those on the real estate market at any point in time.
As you drive up Comox Avenue into the town there is a condo complex on the right known as Emerald Shores. Quite a number of the units have ocean and glacier views. Further up the road are more condominium units on the right off of Manor Drive. Just past the old hospital grounds on the right there are a number of homes that range from split level homes built in the 1960s to newer construction and full featured homes down to the edge of the Comox Bay, some with ocean views and others situated right on the shoreline. Travel a bit further down and you will find the Comox Harbour and Marina complex on the right beside Port Augusta Park – the hose to many events throughout the year.
Comox Avenue leads to the main street of Comox BC and near the eastern end there is a shopping mall with a newly remodelled Independent Grocer. Across the street the 9-hole Glacier Greens golf course commands some of the prime downtown real estate with terrific views of the ocean and some of the local deer that roam the course. Travel further east to where Comox Avenue bends north and becomes Pritchard Road and you will see the grounds of the Filberg Park. Travel north along Pritchard and you will encounter a number of styles of home that range from patio homes to single family homes and a large variety of styles. Variety and style choice dot the Comox area along with a number of newer subdivisions.
Beckton Estates is located on the eastern boundary of the town just off of Lazo Road. Travel west along Guthrie Road from there and you will drive by the local high school (Highland) and Foxxwood Heights. Go further west and the next large subdivision you will encounter will be Lancaster Heights. While a few building lots may still be available in and near the town, most of the lots are occupied with homes. Mobile homes, patio homes, condo apartments, duplexes, town homes and single-family homes cover the ground within the town. Single family home styles ranges from the 1960s split levels of the 1960 to modern open concept ranchers and West Coast contemporary homes.
