With lush fields, rolling hills and prosperous farm communities, the Fraser Valley offers beautiful scenery and proximity to nature. At the same time, the region is one of British Columbia’s most dynamic urban centres. With thriving multicultural communities and easy accessibility to Vancouver, it’s no surprise that the popularity of Fraser Valley real estate is on the rise.
Stretching from the edge of the Coast Mountains to the Pacific Ocean, the Fraser Valley is located in the southwestern corner of British Columbia’s mainland. Almost half the population of B.C. lives within the region, making it a key transportation corridor and economic hub.
The Fraser Valley has some of the richest land in British Columbia, much of it protected by the Agricultural Land Reserve, which brings in over half of the province’s annual agricultural revenue. While the region’s economy has long been nourished by the agricultural and resource industries, the economy has expanded to include a wide variety of manufacturing, aerospace, service and high-tech fields. This economic expansion has resulted in corresponding development in the region’s communities, including strong growth in the Chilliwack and Abbotsford real estate markets.
Those who live in the region experience the benefits of being close to Vancouver, in addition to benefits of small community living such as wide open spaces, natural scenery, outdoor recreation and privacy. At the same time, the Fraser Valley’s main municipalities, including White Rock and Surrey, Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Mission and Hope, welcome a diversity of people, languages and cultures, and offer an array of real estate options to families, retirees and real estate investors.
