North Vancouver Real Estate

The search for North Vancouver real estate... with the way Vancouver is growing on almost a daily basis you can imagine that the real estate is going crazy in the city and the North Vancouver real estate market is very active as well.

Since the entire city is in and has been in a housing boom almost since Expo 86 which was also held in Vancouver the real estate market hasn't really stopped growing in demand.

Many people are starting to buy property out in the suburbs and the municipalities outside of Vancouver proper such as Richmond, Burnaby, New Westminster, Port Coquitlam, West Vancouver and of course North Vancouver.

North Van as we call it is more of a bedroom community situated on the north side of the inlet which is opposite of Stanley Park. It starts on the waterfront and climbs halfway up the North Vancouver mountainside.

For people who own property over there this offers a magnificent view of not only Stanley Park and downtown Vancouver but depending on how high up the mountainside you live on a clear day you can see all the way to Washington state!

North Van is also home to the local ski hills the most popular ones are of course Mount Seymour and Grouse Mountain. One of the benefits of owning some North Vancouver real estate is that you won't have far to go to reach the ski hills that also become great mountain bike trails in the summer.

Looking for some real estate in North Van you'll want to have a real estate agent that you can trust and who knows the market well and can find exactly what you're looking for... the kind of realtor who knows the Vancouver and the North Van real estate markets and provides excellent service.

Getting back and forth from North Van to Vancouver proper is usually pretty easy to do whether you're driving or using public transit.

There are two bridges that link the two municipalities and they are named the Lions Gate Bridge and the Second Narrows Bridge also known as the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge. Now, if you're using public transit to get to downtown Vancouver you have the choice of going over one of the two bridges or your third option is...

To take the sea bus which is basically a bus on the water... the sea bus is a pedestrian only ferry that shuttles people and cyclists across the inlet from North Vancouver to downtown Vancouver.

Another nice thing about North Vancouver is that you can be close to all the action and the buzz of the city and at the same time, be far enough away to have your own quiet space which is not to say that North Van doesn't have its own shopping malls and restaurants, theaters and so on.

In fact North Vancouver is a municipality of its own that is growing rapidly as is the price of the North Vancouver real estate. Because of where it is situated, the prices tend to be in line with the views of the city meaning that's like mountain climbing...the higher you climb the mountain the bigger the view so the higher you are on the mountainside the more expensive the North Vancouver real estate is!
