Even though Vancouver is regularly ranked as one of the most livable cities in the world, it is not easy for potential homeowners to seek high-rises in emerging urban centres at competitive prices. While an average condo apartment in Greater Vancouver sells for around $850,000, Surrey only sells for around $340,000, which is more than half of Greater Vancouver’s price. The home price gap is just as revealing. In August 2019, for instance, 229 detached houses were listed for sale in Surrey-Delta for $1 million or less, compared with just one in Vancouver. There were two-dozen in North Surrey alone, according to data from the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board. Yet average family incomes in Surrey are higher than in B.C.’s biggest city, reports Statistics Canada. As such, Surrey is experiencing a large scale of growth and expansion. More than a thousand people are moving to Surrey every month, settling in the downtown core and surrounding neighborhoods.
