Nestled between the shores of the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains, the Greater Vancouver Area is the 3rd-largest urban centre in Canada and the most populous city in the province of British Columbia. There are more than 630,000 residents in Metro Vancouver and almost 2.5 million people that call the Greater Vancouver Area home.

While Vancouver is known for its green space and access to sea and mountains, it’s also the city with the highest urban density in Canada—with over 5,400 people per square kilometre. This density makes Metro Vancouver the 4th-most densely populated city in North America, behind New York, San Francisco and Mexico City. According to the Globalization and World Cities Research Network (GaWC), Vancouver is classified as a Beta global city: A hub city that links moderate economic regions into a world economy.

Despite it’s size, Vancouver is consistently voted one of the most liveable places on Earth. It’s easy to see why. Outdoor enthusiasts love the easy access to the rugged outdoors. Foodies love the local eateries and fusion blends this culturally diverse city offers. Artists love the rich history and strong local support. Even a casual bike ride or stroll in Stanley Park—1,000 acres of protected woodlands—is a chance to escape into nature, right in the heart of the city.

Commuters to and from the city can opt to use the city’s public bus system of the SkyTrain, a rapid transit rail system that connects the city to surrounding suburban communities. If cycling is more your speed, sign up for Mobi, the public bike share system, which was launched in 2016.

Vancouver is one of Canada’s warmest cities in the winter and coolest summers, by Canadian standards. It’s also one of the wettest cities in Canada. However, the amount and type of precipitation certainly varies across the Lower Mainland. In Vancouver, snow falls only 11 days, a year, on average, making the city the 4th-mildest for Canadian winters (behind Victoria, Nanaimo and Duncan, all of which are located on Vancouver Island). This temperate climate allows for a long growing season—giving gardeners an average of 237 days to grow a variety of flowers and food.

One interesting fact about the city is that it’s growth and journey has been visually documented throughout its entire history. At age 171 in 2017, the city was established just seven years after photography was commercially available. That’s allowed professional and amateur photographers to capture and document this iconic Canadian city’s evolution over the decades.

Combine all of this with B.C.’s thriving economy and it becomes clear why Vancouver is both a top tourist destination as well as a sought-after place to live within the Canadian real estate market.

Neighbourhoods

Known for mountains and ocean, metro Vancouver’s best kept secret is its vibrant local communities. Each neighbourhood provides a key advantage, which means there is a community that will meet your needs. For instance, business travellers that rely on airport access will like the southern neighbourhoods of Sunset and Marpole. Investors focus on communities nestled up to the unofficial east/west boundary of Victoria/Commercial Drive. Here, buyers find boxy-houses that are ideal for splitting into two separate units (known as Vancouver-specials) or townhouses. If you want a family-centric neighbourhood with homes listed under $2.5-million check out Collingwood, Fairview and Sunrise. While, the funky, super-central townhomes and condos found on Granville Island will appeal to urban-dwellers. Talk a local Vancouver Realtor ® to find out what homes for sale in Vancouver and what neighbourhoods meet your individual needs.

For a quick start, check out the neighbourhoods with the highest and lowest average sale prices. Combine this data with number of homes in Vancouver that sell over list price and how quickly a property sells and you get ranking for how hot a community is right now. Of course, not all your time should be spent on just searching for Vancouver houses for sale. Spend a weekend shopping the local stores and sitting on a few patios. You’ll get the flavour and vibe of the community. Better still, check out a few open houses and talk to local real estate agents and see if the properties in the area meet your needs.

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 Vancouver’s downtown core. Good options include Burnaby, Richmond and New Westminster. Look for neighbourhoods that are closer to the highway or commuter train stations, such as Metrotown or Steveston. Even cities that require a bit longer of a commute, such as Port Moody, Surrey and Langley, are options as they offer more affordable detached homes.

Local Scoop

There are always a few things that make a city special. For the outsider looking in the city’s profound love of dogs is more than a little noticeable. So is are the seemingly unlimited number of yoga studios; the stretches of urban bike paths; or the many glass condo buildings that line the city core. But there’s so more to this west coast city.

On any given sunny afternoon, people leave their workspaces to gather in parks and around cafe tables. Every day of the week there’s a farmer’s market where tables are stuffed with fresh berries, large bushels of apples, baskets of tomatoes and an assortment of locally grown green leafy vegetables. At any time, you can find residents and tourists taking in the salt water air at either Stanley Park or the Pacific Spirit Regional Park—the two largest urban parks in British Columbia.

Then there’s pubs and grub. Local distilleries call this city home because of a supportive and appreciative fan base; foodies love this city because of the eclectic mix of meals. For example, try the crispy chicken burrito at Tacofino. Popular with lunch crowds this burrito bar started in Tofino on Vancouver Island, when a food-truck was permanently parked behind a surf shop. For a more basic, but hearty meal, consider Meat + Bread. The menu rotates with four new sandwiches added to the menu each day. Head over to Kerrisdale if you have a sweet tooth. In 2012, a former interior designer-turned-baker opened up Butter. Now, it’s the go-to place for baked goods.

If you want to own a piece of authentic Vancouver, consider a purchase at Oak + Fort. Started in Gastown in 2010, the brand is known for it’s black and white palette. Described as somewhere between trendy and elegant, this Vancouver-brand is seen on a variety of Hollywood A-listers.

For families with kids the city has a ton to offer. On rainy days, head indoors to spend a day at the Vancouver Aquarium (conveniently located inside Stanley Park) or at Science World. On sunny days, consider splashing out at the largest free water park in North America, located on Granville Island. Another option is to sink your toes into the soft, gold sand at Kitsilano Beach, where you can also find a few playscapes, a splash pad and heated salt-water pool.
