Condos and Townhomes in University District, Nanaimo
It's no surprise that the University District boasts a variety of condos and townhomes, given its close proximity to Vancouver Island University (VIU). Between those who work at the university or nearby businesses and the students looking for a place to rent, there's certainly demand from buyers who are looking for an affordable home or a property to rent out for extra income. The low-rise condo buildings and townhouse developments in this part of Nanaimo come in many architectural styles, but you'll find that most were built in the 1980s and 90s and feature very spacious interiors. Because many of these complexes don't include a large number of units, you'll also notice that the strata fees are generally quite low.
