When is the last time you had a conversation with someone where real estate didn’t come up? The topic affects everyone in the Lower Mainland, in one way or another.
People are always curious about where the best place to buy a home or invest in real estate might be, and the answer is always a moving target. With housing prices in Vancouver out of reach for most people, other cities in the Lower Mainland are really appealing.
Enter Cloverdale. Cloverdale is a town centre (one of six) in the city of Surrey. It is located in the eastern part of the city, west of Langley, and it’s been gaining a lot of attention lately, and for good reason.
Right now, Cloverdale is a great place to invest in real estate, whether you are looking for an investment property, a starter home or a long-term house for a growing family.
5 Reasons Why Cloverdale is a Good Place For HomeBuyer
1. Small town feel
Even though Cloverdale is located within Surrey proper, it retains much of its small-town vibe. The charming city has grown exponentially, but there are still only around 80,000 people who live here (up from 58,000 just 12 years ago). Since it was a lesser-known quaint place not very long ago, it definitely retains that small-town charm — you can even spot the main street storefronts in a bunch of tv shows and movies.
2. Big City Access
It is a mere 45 km from Vancouver for quick access, but also well situated within all the amenities Surrey has to offer. You don’t have to travel far for anything and everything you need.
3. Great for families
There are kids everywhere you look in Cloverdale because lots of families are flocking there and getting in on the ground floor. Setting roots down with a young family means that the children get to grow up with neighbours for friends and are able to develop friendships that will last a lifetime. There is a true sense of community here.
4. Outdoor space
There are parks everywhere! And they are well taken care of by the city and the community at large. Anything and everything you could want in city parks — from athletic spaces to beautiful walking trails to big grassy areas for playing in — it can all be found in Cloverdale.
While Cloverdale is on the rise, prices are following suit so investing in this up and coming part of Surrey is a smart move when it comes to real estate. It’s a great market to get your foot in the door because it is still affordable, with lots of new builds on the go and many more in the works.
There is a real sense of pride in Cloverdale — the people who have been there for a long time are committed to keeping its charm and friendliness intact. It is also exciting to be part of a community that is growing. There is a lot of opportunity in Cloverdale and I love seeing people find the home they have been looking for at a price they can afford.
