Courtenay Real Estate Overview
The Courtenay housing market dates back to about 1915 when the community became a city. This market occupies the geographic centre of the Comox Valley. Some of the homes in the Old Orchard area of the city date back to the turn of the Century and they rest prominently on land that is revered by local residents for its proximity to the downtown city centre. The City of Courtenay is the main engine of the Comox Valley resale homes market. This city comprises about 53% of the total single-family homes sales in this region of Vancouver Island.
