Looking for a more affordable home in Abbotsford & Mission

If you’re looking to buy a condo or townhouse in Abbotsford or Mission, chances are you’re looking for a more affordable property and place to set down roots. The good news is that developers finally realized in the last number of years that this area was prime for newer condo and townhouse complexes. As a result, there’s a lot more stock to choose from and in a variety of price ranges. The more expensive options will primarily be the newer complexes and units, while older units will offer more space but higher maintenance fees and a need to do more updating.
