Located just 45 minutes from downtown Victoria and only 20 minutes to City of Langford the new service and shopping hub of Victoria, it’s no wonder why Sooke has earned a rep as one of Southern Vancouver Island’s more popular bedroom communities..
And when you compare the average price of a single family home in Sooke ($395,120) to this region’s other nearby commuter towns, such as Colwood ($445,610), Sidney ($506,944), Langford ($524,059), Metchosin ($570,000), it’s easy to see why Sooke reigns as bedroom-community-king.
But wait just a second before you grab those furry bunny slippers – Sooke has so much more than just great real estate prices and accessibility. Sticking out like a pea hidden in a pile of commuter-town mattresses, the town of Sooke thrives with plenty of outdoor adventure opportunities (everything from biking to hiking and beachcombing), an active arts scene, a number of world class restaurants and cafés and more. In fact, Sooke has a lifestyle that’s more akin to spunky than sleepy.
So what’re you waiting for? Head to Sooke to find out what we’ve been hiding behind our closed (bedroom) doors for all these years.
