Dreaming of Private Islands

"I know you guys - you sell islands!"
Sheep Island
It's true; the BC Oceanfront Team, at the Royal LePage Advance Realty Campbell River office, sells private islands - whole, entire islands that are privately owned and come in a price range to suit many budgets.

Owning an island in reality of course requires a lot of thought and planning. How will you get there? (Generally boat, sometimes float plane.) Do you want protected or open water? How far do you want to be from civilization? Do you want to build your own island escape? Or do you want an island someone else has developed into an amazing retreat already?

Farquharson Island

For some people owning any island is enough. These islands may never be developed or built on. They will remain a natural escape from the world, perhaps for camping on or just day trips. For some people, just knowing that they have that remote island is the dream.

Other people want to live on their islands, at least some of the time if not full-time (and some definitely want to live there full time). Having a developed property on an island raises a number of questions that should be dealt with during the consideration phase. Questions such as: Where does the power come from? How will water be obtained? How will the building materials get there? Some people circumvent all these complicated issued by buying an island already developed that only requires general maintenance and upkeep. But others want to create their own personal retreat and place. For them, the work and the creation of their person island domain is part of the desire.

Within the BCO office there is a wealth of knowledge about the realities of coastal properties, including private islands. Ed has spent years working in the remote areas of the coast, making relationships, gathering information and seeing over time what works and what doesn’t. The BCO office team specializes in gathering information about remote areas.

Sturt Island
Islands are a dream for so many, and here at BCO, we really can help make that dream come true.
It's a Coastal Lifestyle ... Pass It On!
