Currently, two-thirds of the Lower Mainland’s population lives north of the Fraser River, but the area north of the Fraser contains only one-third of the developable land in the Lower Mainland. Thus, most of the new development and residential growth in the coming decade will occur in the Fraser Valley.
This area of growth and opportunity, from the Fraser River south to the US border, is within the jurisdiction of the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board. The communities in this region — North Delta, Surrey, White Rock, Langley Township, Langley City, Abbotsford and Mission — are currently the most affordable areas to live in the Lower Mainland.
Whatever your lifestyle, you’ll find something to suit you: from apartment condominiums and townhouses in busy urban centres, to homes with pastoral acreage overlooking the most productive farmland in BC, from brand new homes to heritage homes. The infrastructure of schools, public transit, hospitals, retail centres, and recreation centres is expanding rapidly to keep pace with the residential development.
