There are 860 homes listed in Nanaimo above $100,000.


The most expensive home reported sold in Nanaimo last week was on Lantzville Rd for $890,000.  It appears this was purchased in 1975 for $70,000. It is likely there has been substantial investment in the interim.


The largest winner was a sale on Cilaire. It appears the purchase was way back in 1986 for $74,000 and sold this past week at $360,000 for a gain of 486%.
