Vancouver is one of Canada’s most popular cities, and not without good reason. Geographically, it sits on the west coast, home to beautiful scenery and a pleasant climate, and is only a short drive from the border with the US, Canada’s southern neighbour. However, property prices do sit more highly than in many other Canadian cities, but the temptation to rent rather than buy should not be immediately given in to.
Cost-wise, if you have enough for a down payment on a house, and plan to stay in Vancouver long term, it’s worth looking at East Vancouver houses as well as all other areas, considering how much more practical it will be in the long-term. Vancouver is renowned for being a pricey place to live, but houses in the surrounding areas are still affordable, and any savings are undoubtedly welcome.
