Welcome to PEI!! ;)


Thank you :D



The first thing asked is about your father. And then about your religion.

If there is time, something about who you voted for might come up.

:lol:

I am 15 mins from the airport, 35 mins from the bridge, and 20 minutes to Charlottetown, and this is what I see when I BBQ and drink beer in the summer, works out quite nice for me too! :D

Summerside or western PEI (O'Leary, Tyne Valley, Alberton or Tignish)..those would be my choices lots of off-Island people moved into O'Leary Alberton in past year, including a couple of my coworkers so thats pretty neat seeing they are from Ontario and England.

HA to O'Leary. If you are looking for a quiet, calm place, that is close to a rural area; then look to further then Stratford. It has a lot of in town conveniences like a Town Hall, School and a Sobeys grocery store, along with many various restaurant's and corner stores. If you get bored of that, Charlottetown is just minutes away with access to everything. Only problem, Charlottetown isn't really a quiet or as clean a place as Stratford, which I don't fully understand.

It really depends on what you are looking for. If you are looking for a rural area with school's/shopping close by than it's hard to beat Stratford. It's probably the fastest growing location on PEI.

The family and I (wife and 2yr old daughter) just spent two weeks looking at houses in PEI within the 100,000 - 130,000 range of things and managed to grab a nice bungalow in Mount Stewart, 20min east of Charlottetown. Seems like a nice area, close to bike trails and waterfront so I'm itching for the kayak.
We pretty much went to see every single house within this range and YES, there are some nice places but each house came with small to serious problems.
We were under the impression that the real estate market was relatively slow, but we were "scooped" twice for houses that stayed on the market for 2days, not even a chance to get a look inside! There was one place in particular that was IMPECABLE but too close to highway to a family with young kids.

One thing appeared certain, PEI'ers appear to be VERY welcoming people BUT they'll try to rangle those last few dollars from your pocket, very savy bunch.

If you see something on www.mls.ca you reply with the listing number and I may have seen the interior already and I'll give you my opinion.
Look forward to hitting the island full-time come Nov. 1st.

Thats because of lack.....


too many islanders are living in lack and too often are trying to make a buck or save a buck.

I'd say most are guilty of it .......

I agree with FerryRoad, it depends why you are coming here. If it is for retirement (or your work situation is not an issue), any place on the Island would be nice. I am sure everyone on this board would have their biases, and mine would be the Greater Charlottetown area or the North Shore (anywhere from Stanhope/Dalvay area, to Park Corner/French River area).

If you are looking for a job, I would not stray too far from the Charlottetown area.


Scudders,

You have pretty much nailed it in one. I guess there are good and better areas to live in each of the above places. Which is the best and what sort of money would it be to buy or rent a home there? Detached on a bit of land with a view.

Jaid



How about if you're single, not looking for a job (my company is expanding ), moving from smack downtown Toronto... is totally in love with the people and the land... makes good money...and would like to be right by the sea? What would you guys recommend?
ps: thanks for any feed back
