Property Values on Bowen Island
Why should I consider purchasing on Bowen Island?
Bowen Island offers a lifestyle that’s pretty much unique anywhere in North America. Approximately 6 km wide by 12 km long, at its closest point the island is only three kilometers west of Horseshoe Bay and West Vancouver. BC Ferries services the island from 5:20am to 10:50pm every day, and the ferry ride is only 20 minutes. There are also several water taxis. With 3,700 full time residents and 1,500 part time residents/vacationers, Bowen retains a rural, small-town charm while in the shadow of a city of two million people. It offers an idyllic pace of life while having close, convenient access to the most livable, desirable metropolis in the world.
Like many island communities, there are as many reasons to move to Bowen Island as there are residents (permanent or part-time). Indeed, most folks likely can list off a multitude of reasons why they like it here so much.
Bowen Islanders will agree that it’s a very special place and that the Cape on Bowen is one of the most beautiful spots on the Island, and in the Howe Sound region.
Bowen Island is an intimate community that can have a wide range of real estate listings at any given time. Due to the small number of listings that might be active at a particular time of year, average and median prices can be skewed with the sale (or lack thereof) of a high-priced property. Given its proximity to Vancouver, the Lower Mainland, and even the Sea to Sky corridor and Whistler Resort, Bowen Island offers tremendous potential for long-term capital appreciation.
With their unique ten-acre estate size and southwest-facing location over the Gulf of Georgia, the Cape on Bowen is a truly exceptional buying opportunity that can’t be accurately compared to the seasonal highs and lows which affect both the average and median prices of real estate.
