Make Tofino Real Estate your Reality

Buying a home in Tofino is a dream for many visiting families and individuals.

Asking a long-time resident about how or why she lives in Tofino often begins with a now-familiar cliché: "I came for a weekend in 1980 and I never left."

This Real Estate Conversation Starter leads into a list of questions:

"How can one make a living in such a small town?"
Common Answer: "Start your own business or buy an existing business."

There are well over 200 business licenses in Tofino and likely room for many more. The tourism economy is still strong, and now with high speed internet access, many folks choose to continue a chosen industry or job but work most of the time remotely.

"Real estate seems expensive in Tofino. How can we afford something?"

Common Answer: "It's not as expensive as you think."

Look around, find a good realtor, and don't be unrealistic about where you want to be. The first instinct is to find a home on the beach. Beachfront real estate is much more expensive than a modest home in a pleasant sub division, which might start in the low $400,000 range.

"What is the school system like in Tofino?"
Common Answer: "Awesome!"

I have two children at the elementary school, and I can say first hand that for a town of about 2000 people, Wickaninnish Elementary School is an incredible place. We don't have access to the types of amenities that one might find in a larger city, but this is well made up for by the positive energy that the teachers and staff bring to the school day in and day out. There are always fantastic field trips and programs happening, and the feeling in the school is overwhelmingly positive. The high school is in neighboring Ucluelet. There is a foundation that awards a $40,000 scholarship annually to a graduating student who has shown a commitment to his or her community. How cool is that!?
