Moving to Vancouver, heard prices for houses there are crazy. Any idea about good suburbs where people generally buy houses near Vancouver?

    Canadian real estate prices are in free fall. Rent for a while and wait for better deals.

      You can thank me for starting the trade war with China and destroy the Chinese economy so no more Chinese money pumping up the price.

    Abbotsford and Chilliwack are pretty far out. Maybe Port Moody, Surrey, Delta... Burnaby... it’s all pricey, though.

      Thanks a ton. Will look to find out some options. On a side track do you think working in Toronto is a better option?

      I personally dislike Toronto. Within Canada, it feels like the most American city... so that might be a plus for you. But my negatives is purely based on the weather.

      If you don’t mind the cold, consider Calgary or Edmonton. Edmonton has one of, if not the highest rate of job growth right now. I can’t speak to all the sectors but take a look...

      And I’d avoid Saskatchewan, Manitoba and the maritimes like the plague. I don’t know what’s going on in Quebec but you might face language challenges.

      Thanks. Do you mind sharing why would you avoid Manitoba?

      Extreme cold, mostly. Winnipeg has a decent and emerging creative culture but the nickname says it all - Winterpeg.

    Damnn why don’t amazon move more jobs to Portland. The house is cheap as fuck and it’s right next to Vancouver WA where you pay no income tax and no sales tax

    If you want a detached house try Abbotsford or Chilliwack. Depends on what kind of mortgage you can afford.

    With 1.3M you can buy a good house in Vancouver, North Vancouver, or Burnaby. With 1.1M you can buy in Port Moody, Coquitlam, or New Westminster. With 900k you may find sonething in Port Coquitlam, Maple Ridge or North Surrey. If you wanna go lower than that, you would have to go to south surrey, Abbotsford, Mission or Chilliwack which are too far from from downtown (like 1.5 hour drive).
