Re: Where to buy?

Maggie I didnt see your earlier question about Chilliwack.  I think Chilliwack is really a pretty area with the mountain scenery, river, Cultus Lake, but it is just so much further from Vancouver than Aldergrove.   Chilliwack has also risen a lot in price the past couple of years, like everywhere.  ...

Re: Where to buy?

That listing I recommended has now sold.  HOWEVER that entire area, there has just been an announcement of a big development coming in soon, with two golf courses etc.  Beautiful ocean views.   The area is called Union Bay on Vancouver Island. Its a little gem about to explode :)  http://businessexa...

Will the end of bridge tolls cause an increase in property values ?

With the removal of bridge tolls, what do you all think? will this increase the prices of real estate to higher prices east of the Port Mann/south of Fraser River?  How about Maple Ridge? I think it will. Even more so than they have already increased I think the removal of bridge tolls will just nud...

Re: Where to buy?

There is crime everywhere now its just one big melting pot, really doesnt matter that much anymore...in my opinion :)   For condos I would like Courtenay, Comox, Campbell River.  For single family new construction houses, I would look Aldergrove.  Thats just MY opinion.  Also around Guildford mall t...

Re: Where to buy?

I am from Vancouver Island but currently I live in the Lower Mainland area.  I would advise Campbell River or Comox Valley as a great place to buy a small affordable condo or townhouse if it allows rentals.    Those areas are growing rapidly and there is a severe shortage of rental homes in both are...
