"I cannot sing the praises of Sarah highly enough! She has been an absolute superstar from the get-go, helping me with viewings .. using her own transportation .. providing me with a resume each day of the properties viewed. .. Sarah has been with me every step of the way .. Even as the purchase has completed, .. Sarah has remained on the case, continuing to follow-up. .. In all honesty, without Sarah's help, I have a feeling that my dream of buying in the Okanagan may not have happened at all. .. So thank you Sarah, thank you Stewart Group." ~ D. King, Buyer

annual Cost of living

For the basis of our cost of living stats, we used the BC Cost of Living Calculator available online, which is built using data collected through the Economic Research Institute. For average salary, we sourced numbers from Montreal-based job search aggregate, Neuvoo, which was able to supply the most current salary information for each city. Other variables (vehicles, dependents, etc.) were kept constant to try and limit their influence on our results.

It wasn't our intention to have Penticton perform so amazingly on the graph above -- we even went out of our way to find significant contradictory statistics. Our methodology gave us the largest sample size for each specific city as reported through third party websites, updated end of April 2017. We know that the above graph does not represent every situation perfectly, but it should give you a good starting point for your own unique circumstance. Keep in mind that if you were to change the income value, but keep the other variables the same, the actual cost of living would remain unchanged.
