Duncan real estate listings
Duncan is a city on southern Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. The local population is about 5,000 but it is also the commerce hub for about 80,000 people in the surrounding areas. The town slogan is “The City of Totems” which reflects the heritage and cultural influence of the First Nations people. There are about 80 totem poles located around the town that attract tourists during the summer months.
Duncan features educational and recreational opportunities plus shopping for the entire family. There is a quaint and very walkable downtown that is filled with eclectic shops and services. On weekends, the town square becomes a farmer’s market with fresh produce and organics from neighbouring farms and artisanal producers. Nearby, several big box stores like Walmart, Staples, and Home Depot are there for affordable essentials. The town has a hockey rink, numerous ball diamonds and soccer fields, and enough activities for the whole family to last all year. For anyone interested in post-secondary education, Vancouver Island University has campus here that offers a number of full-time programs and a continuing education department for part-time or evening studies.
The local real estate market is very strong due to the influx of commuters from Victoria. The wide range of property types attract buyers from first-timers to retirees. Prices for mobiles or land sometimes start under $100,000 while luxury homes and destination properties can reach six figures. If you’re an investor, it might be helpful to know that Duncan has a healthy rental market.
