Pa Alberni Valley Real Estate

Port Alberni is nicknamed the “Heart of Vancouver Island” partly because of the welcoming community but also because of its location. The central location makes it a convenient community to live, especially for those that love to travel. Travel down the Alberni Inlet towards Bamfield for a fishing trip, drive westward for surfing in Tofino, or head east for exceptional shopping in Nanaimo before heading south to the capital city of Victoria. A trip to the mainland is possible by catching a ferry in Nanaimo or by taking a seasonal seaplane from Port Alberni.

This pairs well with another great feature - a low cost of living. Port Alberni’s central location and low cost of living mean life is just a bit more affordable and interesting. Travellers love using Port Alberni as their home base while they spend their excess money on trips and vacations. A low cost of living means more money can stay in your pocket and savings account, allowing you to do the things you want to do. In the valley, you can work and play without guilt!

In Port Alberni, residents are warm and welcoming to each other. If disaster strikes through a house fire or other unfortunate circumstance, the community comes together to help. Port Alberni is known as the community with a heart, and it shows through the many food drives, fundraisers, and day-to-day interactions. Don’t be surprised if someone you’ve never met before sparks up a conversation as you wait for a bus or cab. This is a friendly community. Politeness and consideration go a long way.

If a sense of community is important to you, then Port Alberni is a top choice. This is a town where everybody knows everybody. The question, “are you related to so-and-so with the same last name?” comes up often and in a good way. If you are new to town, locals are more than happy to give you the details about the best places to grab a burger, hang out, or shop for the best deals. In fact, if you are new to town, your coworkers might already be planning a dinner at a great restaurant to welcome you to the team. Residents are friendly, welcoming, and accepting of newcomers.
