The median (family) household income in Comox (2016) is supposedly just below $80,000. I'd certainly like to be bringing in twice that, but might take a year or two (thanks to my reluctance to get a 'real' job )

House prices in the Comox Valley seem to range from $325,000.00 to $1,850,000.00 according to recent reports on Google.
Think we'll be looking at around $500 -600k. It won't buy anything fancy, but still some decent properties in that range.

We don't live lavishly. My major concerns in terms of costs are groceries (we're a family of four) and vehicles (we'll need two, but get by with one here), because they're so much more in BC than the UK. Other than that a ski pass would be nice. As for flying I'll do that on my own and for work reasons. If we're taking the kids, then the ferry makes way more sense.

You might have to plan your finances even for a ferry trip, especially if you have children and all their expenses!
