Where to Buy a Townhouse in Abbotsford and Mission in 2019 – Full Ranking

Where to buy townhouse in Abbotsford and Mission 2019

As the housing market got hotter and hotter in the Lower Mainland, cities like Abbotsford and Mission began to see sales activity hit new highs. To satisfy demand, developers began to move in and build infills and multi-family complexes. This injection of activity and money helped to create a more diverse housing stock in these cities, which helped to attract new people, new families and those looking for a more affordable option to becoming a homeowner.

Even with the market downturn in the last year, buyers in the Abbotsford and Mission areas will tell you — competition for affordably priced, well-appointed properties is fierce even with headlines trumpeting 10-year lows in sales activity.

Part of the problem is that townhomes and condos weren’t all that common in these two cities a decade ago. People who wanted to live and own in this part of the Lower Mainland had to save up more down payment, for longer, in order to buy a single-family home (of course, houses were also selling at a more reasonable price point, as well). With recent development, the options opened up and this means that more and more first-time buyers are looking at buying and building a life in the two cities in the Lower Mainland that really try and retain their rural roots.
