Looking for a deal on North Shore is hard at the best of times

Looking at buying a condo or townhouse in West or North Vancouver this year? Better dig deep. The North Shore holds some of Canada’s most expensive properties. Great if you currently own and looking to downsize, not so great if you’re a first-time buyer. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t good options. The key is to look at fundamentals — look for communities that have sustained price appreciation, good value (compared to surrounding communities) and high desirability. Buy in a neighbourhood that gets top scores in these three areas and you’ll probably weather any market cycle.

To help, we analyzed all North Shore neighbourhoods. The result is a ranking of the best neighbourhoods to buy a condo or townhouse in West or North Vancouver in 2018.
