Last year at this time we questioned if the Victoria real estate market would move in 2015 from a balance position into a sellers market – a market in which demand outpaces supply. The numbers are in and the answer is a resounding yes.

As we start construction on the 5 remaining geothermal lots at Woodland Creek in the town of Sooke, a waterfront community close to Victoria BC, we can truly say that the innovative approach we took to new home construction has paid off. It has paid off for the homeowners, the environment, the community, and our employees and trades.
Homeowners that purchased the first new homes 4 years ago were risk takers. As early adopters they were willing to try something relatively new. While an established … read more
