So, you're thinking of moving to the Metro Vancouver area but you're not
quite sure which area might be right for you and your family and whomever you may
have coming with you. Well, in this video I'm gonna cover the 7 municipalities
that make up the Metro Vancouver Region because it is so diverse. So, if you want
to know what the best area is for you to live in Metro Vancouver, stick around.
Hey, everyone. I'm craig Veroni with RE/MAX Masters Realty. I'm a local real estate
agent here in Metro Vancouver. I was actually named one of the top 50 video
influencers in real estate, in North America, for the past two consecutive
years for the way I utilize video to sell my client's homes and educate them as well.
Today's video is all about the various types of living in the Metro
Vancouver area that's going to fit your lifestyle. I shoot a ton of videos about
what it's like to live, love, and own here in Vancouver, B.C. so, if you haven't yet,

all right so let's jump into it. When most
people think of Vancouver, they think of downtown Vancouver. And, that's only
natural. After all Vancouver is one of the most
densely populated areas of any city in Canada. Downtown, Vancouver is
surrounded by water. It's also home to the world-famous Stanley Park and its
seawall. It is loaded with every kind of amenity you could possibly want.
Restaurants, coffee shops, bars, nightclubs, shopping. Not to mention this is an
incredibly walkable city. There are also tons of high-rise and low-rise
apartments for condo living downtown.
Now, I know you're going to want to know the
average home price for each of the areas that I'll be highlighting today so, in
the description below I'm gonna put a link for you to a phenomenal market
report that's going to cover all of the seven areas I'll be describing today, as
well as all of the sub areas in those cities. You're going to know how much
inventory is in that neighborhood, the average list to sale price ratio, the
average days on market, and so much more. You're absolutely going to love it so
make sure to check out that link in the description below.
Now we were just talking about condos and you're also going to find a ton of
townhouses downtown but what you're not going to find a lot of are detached homes.
For those you're going to have to head south over either the Burrard,
Granville, or Cambie Street bridges or, north over the Lions Gate Bridge.
Now the City of Vancouver is divided into three main areas. You've got downtown,
the east side and west side of Vancouver. Main Street is the dividing line between the
east and west sides of Vancouver. Now the west side of Vancouver is home to some
of the most expensive real estate in Vancouver other than West Vancouver
which I'll get to soon. It has beautiful mature neighbourhoods with some stunning
detached homes. The east side is home to some of Vancouver's trendiest
neighborhoods such as the Mount Pleasant and Main Street areas.
I'm not going to go into detail of the various neighborhoods in this video but in
upcoming videos I'm certainly going to dive deeper into them for you. So, keep
your eyes peeled for videos such as the "Top 5 Neighborhoods on the Westside of Vancouver,"
"The Top 5 neighborhoods on the Eastside of Vancouver," and
"The Hottest Neighborhoods Downtown."
Okay, so we've covered the City of Vancouver
itself but there are a number of other municipalities that you may want to
consider as well. First let's jump across the Lions Gate Bridge to North Vancouver.
Lower Lonsdale allows you to be in the heart of the action with stunning views
of the vancouver skyline in the water while places like central Lonsdale, Delbrook,
Pemberton Heights, and Lynn Valley offer you relatively affordable detached
home options. Places like Edgemont Village in the Capilano Highlands area
here in North Vancouver offer you more luxury detached home options.
North Vancouver is also home to two ski hills Mount Seymour and Grouse Mountain home
of the world famous Grouse Grind.
North Vancouver also has an incredible school system
so whether you've got kids in elementary or high school, you can't go wrong.
Now, if luxury real estate is what you're after but you don't want to live
in North Vancouver or the west side of Vancouver, then West Vancouver is for you.
With so many areas in West Vancouver offering stunning views of the Vancouver
skyline and the water it's no wonder that this is such a popular place for
those looking for a luxury real estate.
My office is located at 1453 Bellevue Ave. in West vancouver
so, if you ever have any questions about the area, feel free to give me a call.
But, maybe you don’t want to live on the North Shore and you’d prefer to live just east of Vancouver,
then Burnaby might just be for you.
again lots of older mature neighborhoods with less pricier detached home options than Vancouver itself.
You've also got Simon Fraser University in Burnaby if you're a student or
perhaps condo living in the Metrotown area is for you or the Burnaby Heights
and Capitol Hill neighborhoods or even the lovely area around Deer Lake.
Right next to it in the southeast corner of Burnaby is New Westminster. Here you're
going to find charming turn-of-the-century homes, mid-century homes,
as well as newer homes and tons of high-rise condos all along the riverfront in new West.
My good friend, Geoff specializes in this area so if
you're thinking of moving here, give me a call and I'll be sure to connect you with him.
In the northeast corner of Burnaby right next door is Port Moody.
Another fantastic place to live with a redeveloped waterfront area, fantastic
microbreweries, as well as parks and lakes such as Buntzen lake for you to enjoy.
I grew up and went to school in this area and it is a fantastic place to raise a family.
Now, maybe none of these municipalities
are speaking to you and you'd prefer to live south of Vancouver in Richmond.
Home of the Richmond night market, right next door to YVR Airport and serving up some
of the best Asian cuisine and shopping for you.
This might be more in your wheelhouse.
Now, that's just a quick glimpse of the 7 municipalities I'm
referring to as the Metro Vancouver region but, there are another 8 or
9 municipalities surrounding that that make up the Greater Vancouver area
which are sure to have home options fitting your budget and lifestyle.
