MLS Statistics for Highlands

by hwilde on January 16, 2012

Just a short drive and yet a world away from city life in Victoria, Highlands is a unique district with a strong sense of environmental responsibility and conservation.

Homes in this rugged rural community range from rustic cabins to luxury estate properties, all nestled gently into the surrounding wilderness.  People who live here must be prepared for less city services than most areas in Greater Victoria.  Water is supplied by well and there are no sewers, sidewalks or subdivisions, but the natural beauty of Highlands more than makes up for it.

The lack of services and subdivisions means that Highlands is often overlooked by people who aren’t comfortable with rural living, which means that lot prices are quite reasonable (although figures from 2011 are skewed by the sale of one large parcel of land).


Housing Type Average Price (2012) Total Units Sold

So if you are are looking for a rural lifestyle, close knit community and scads of natural beauty you should investigate properties in the District of Highlands.  Here you can experience living in the wilderness and still commute to your downtown Victoria workplace in about 15 minutes!


Victoria BC Realtor Heather Wilde was raised and educated in Winnipeg. After graduating from both the University of Winnipeg (Bachelor of Arts) and the University of Manitoba Faculty of Education she relocated to British Columbia in 1975. Her career in real estate has been successful due to her commitment to and genuine pleasure at helping families find homes and properties for sale in Victoria BC. Heather was licensed as a Realtor in 1976 and since then has worked hard to achieve a high standard of performance; consistently attaining a Victoria Real Estate Board MLS Gold Award. If you ask Heather, she will undoubtedly say that although it’s nice to be recognized in the industry through performance awards, what really drives her success is the relationships and friendships she forges with the families that she helps. Many of Heather’s former clients have become close friends, and many of her close friends have become clients. That says a lot about her dedication to providing professional service while maintaining a friendly rapport with clients. Heather loves to travel the world (preferrably on a cruise ship!) and also enjoys tennis and bridge during her spare time. As of January 2014, Heather has retired from her real estate career.
