As a city, Surrey is often described as a suburb of Metro Vancouver. Although accurate, the description doesn’t do the city justice. By population, Surrey is the 2nd largest city in the province of B.C.; it’s the 3rd largest by urban area. Factor in great amenities and the more affordable housing market in Surrey and you quickly realize this city is so much more than a suburb. It’s a thriving metropolis in the Lower Mainland.

One big advantage to Surrey is the wide-ranging cultural backgrounds of its residents. More than a third of the city’s half a million residents were born outside of Canada. English is still the most common language, but stroll through the streets and you’ll hear conversations in Punjabi, Tagalog, Hindi or Mandarin, among others. This diversity helps create a melting pot of food and cultural experience. So much so that every July there’s an award-winning two-day Fusion Festival to celebrate the city’s diverse experiences.

For families, Surrey real estate is both accessible and affordable. Plus, Surrey schools get top marks. There are plenty of parks and community activities to keep the kids busy all year long and great access to world-class amenities. Even with the high cost of living in surrounding communities, homes in Surrey still look like good value in the Canadian real estate landscape. Many older homes are on larger lots with double-car garages. Newer houses offer extra bathrooms, bedrooms and family rooms to accommodate extended families. There are even townhomes and condos in Surrey around more retail-centric areas.

Surrey’s economy continues to focus on industrial sectors, however, it’s high tech sector is quickly catching the attention of investors, while its clean energy and health sectors offer the city a stable source of employment. What’s surprising is that the city’s agricultural sector employs about 3,300 people each year and about a third of the city’s land is preserved and designated as farmland.

Neighbourhoods

Surrey is home to 26 communities, where the average sale price ranges from $596,000 to $2.5 million. To find the community that suits your needs consider what’s important to you and your lifestyle.

If being close to the city’s urban core is important, consider Surrey homes for sale in City Centre (formerly known as Whalley). Home to Simon Fraser University’s Surrey branch, as well as major shopping and recreational facilities, this community is young and urban. It’s also the place people gather for the Fusion Festival and for the annual Surrey Tree Lighting Festival.

If you’re a commuter who wants quick highway access consider Port Kells in the Guildford community. Homes sell, on average, for $2.5 million but with this price tag, you get more home and much more land.

Those looking for established family neighbourhoods can start their search in Cloverdale, Fleetwood Tynehead or West Newton. Both areas offer good access to highways and top-rated schools.

Nearby Cities

Many buyers opt to purchase in a nearby city and commute to work. These buyers want larger homes and lots but with good commuter access to Surrey’s downtown core. Good options include Delta, Langley and Port Coquitlam. Look for neighbourhoods that are closer to the highway or commuter train stations, such as Ladner or Walnut Grove. Even cities that require a bit longer of a commute, such as Maple Ridge, Mission and Abbotsford, are good options as they offer more affordable detached homes.

Local Scoop

Surrey is urban. Surrey is suburban. Surrey offers a taste of rural. Surrey is the city in the middle of it all. Just 30 minutes south-east of downtown Vancouver by car, Surrey is like a sweet delicious pie—it offers a slice of just about everything to everyone. Whether you’re a thrill seeker, a nature lover, an art fan or a sports fanatic, there’s plenty in Surrey to keep you busy.

For indoor activities consider heading to Coastal Climbing Centre, where you and your little ones can act like Spider-Man and, quite literally, climb the walls. For a day spent in the water, consider time at one of the five community centres. While all five centres have pools, you’ll want to head to Guildford Recreation Centre if your kids are craving some waterslide action and you’d like to sweat it out in the steam room or dry sauna. There’s even a family friendly hot tub with wheelchair access.

For outdoor activities consider hiking or biking one of the many trails in Surrey, or book a wildlife tour. Good spots to see birds and other critters include Blackie Spit, Serpentine Fen and Mud Bay Park. Local guides can show you the best spots to see a Bald Eagle and point out the more than 200 species that make B.C. part of their habitat.

If fishing is your passion, consider checking out the Tynehead Hatchery. Located in Tynehead Regional Park, near the headwater of the Serpentine River, the hatchery offers tours to learn about the local fish and their habitat. If you’d rather get your feet wet and fish the rivers, remember to pick up your provincial fishing license. Non-tidal licences can be purchased online (www.fishing.gov.bc.ca) or go to your local Service BC Centre.

Those that would rather stop and smell the flowers, literally, will want to visit Darts Hill Garden Park. After 70 years of work and dedication, the park grounds are covered with tree and shrub species that are native to the Pacific Northwest, along with a variety of flora. The park even offers guided strolls that help educate visitors on a variety of flora and fauna knowledge, such as the heritage trees of the city.

In the summer, many Surrey locals will head down to the White Rock area. Known as the sunniest spot in the Lower Mainland—or the “hole in the sky” by aircraft pilots—the White Rock community holds on to its small-town feel, even as it expands into a thriving multi-generational community. Grab an ice cream and walk the beach boardwalk or head to Crescent Beach and walk out Blackie Spit Park to watch the otters, seagulls and birds eat their dinner.
