The demand for single family homes with suites is skyrocketing, as Real Estate is becoming far less affordable in Greater Victoria. Almost every one of Greater Victoria's 13 municipalities is now permitting secondary accommodation, or rental suites, in single family zones. One exception is Oak Bay, but we believe a change there is also now imminent. Twenty years ago this was far from the norm with suites only permitted for housing immediate family. There are still many such family co-habitation arrangements in existence in Victoria, but most basement suites are rented to strangers for extra income, or to subsidize a monster mortgage payment that would otherwise be completely un-affordable.
