Vancouver, BC Real Estate For Sale

Benefits of Detached Homes

There are many perks to choosing a house over a condo to raise a family, from the square footage to the freedom of customization, but the best one by far has to be the variety of homes on the market. 

While many condos blend together, single family detached houses each have their own unique personality and construction. Large backyards and quiet neighbourhoods offer a sense of peace that can't be found in the middle of the city.

The Benefits of Owning a House

Because Greater Vancouver has a heavy focus on condos, single family detached houses are highly sought after by couples who want to raise their children in their own backyard while still being close to the big city. There are many perks to choosing a house over a condo to raise a family, from the square footage to the freedom of customization, but the best one by far has to be the variety of homes on the market. While many condos blend together, single family detached houses each have their own unique personality and construction. Large backyards and quiet neighbourhoods offer a sense of peace that can't be found in the middle of the city and any family that wants to customize their home will find a larger sense of freedom with construction when they own their own house.

Great Communities for Single Family Homes

Any family that wants a house of their own in Vancouver will need to move away from Downtown, but thankfully they will not need to move far. Areas like North Vancouver and Shaughnessy are communities to themselves that offer great amenities while remaining close to Downtown, while Burnaby and South Vancouver may be further away, but they both offer a larger selection of available homes.

Because of the recent condo boom in Vancouver and the surrounding cities, it can be very difficult to find a great single family home in the community you want by browsing listings. These houses do not stay on the market long and only a qualified real estate professional has the connections necessary to find your dream home before somebody else does.
