The Comox Valley occupies a fair bit of real estate on Vancouver Island . Over the past year there were 2818 homes and properties listed for sale in the Comox Valley. Of those listed, 1477 sold. The sales occurred in small areas such as the City of Courtenay, the Town of Comox, the village of Cumberland and other communities such as Royston, Union Bay, Fanny Bay, Merville, and Black Creek as well as regional areas like the Comox Peninsula. Not all areas, however, were as active as others.
Courtenay, Comox and the immediate surrounding areas accounted for 83% of sales in the entire valley. Courtenay homes for sale always represent the largest segment of this market. Two local areas within this central part of the valley accounted for just over 40% of all sales. These were Courtenay East and the Town of Comox which are both located next to each other on the East side of the Courtenay River. It is not surprising that this is occurring since this area of local neighbourhoods represents the area of most growth and new home construction.
