The new Abbotsford condos and apartments usually start from less than two hundred thousand dollars, which would not fetch you even a dog house in downtown Vancouver.

Abby Property is Affordable, Luxurious and In The Centre of It All
For many years, living or working in Abbotsford meant long commutes to and from work, play, friends and family. However, Abbotsford has transformed immensely in the past decade and has become a commercial, business, industrial, recreational and commuter capital in the Lower Mainland. Abbotsford real estate is no longer just about acreage and owning farmland. Nowadays, home purchasers can select from a wide range of housing types and styles to fit their life. Abbotsford pre-construction real estate offers a wealth of opportunities for real estate investors to get into the BC market, let alone the Vancouver market that has outpriced many investment professionals in the property market. For first-time homebuyers, this is the easiest decision to make. With a booming economy, lots of jobs and huge in-migration from other parts of the Greater Vancouver Regional District, Abbotsford real estate in terms of new properties provide a number of different townhomes, pre-sales condos and preconstruction single family homes. There really isn't much difference when it comes to couples, growing families and even retired people and empty nesters.

This is one of the advantages of purchasing in a stable and affordable property market, and Abbotsford condos, townhomes and single family detached homes are definately a bargain compared to other communities in teh Lower Mainland.

So What Are the New Real Estate Abbotsford Developments?
One of the best resource magazines is the New Home Buyers Guide that is published usually every two weeks. In there, you will find all sorts of new construction properties including Abbotsford homes, Abby real estate, condo developments (both low rise and high-rise towers) in addition to master-planned communities. With a burgeoning economy that is attracting large companies and firms to move their main headquarters from other Western Canadian cities as well as Vancouver, Abbotsford is also within striking distance to many of the most popular recreational real estate communities in BC in the Okanagan as well as down to the United States and into Alberta. With an airport within the city limits, Abbotsford real estate has become a hot commodity for both property investors looking for positive cash flow as well as long-term capital appreciation in addition to younger singles and couples who work and have friends who live in Abby.

As you can see, the two bedroom apartments will be even bigger. In terms of location, if you live or work around the Abby area, then purchasing Abbotsford real estate is a no brainer. Not only are you close to the airport to get away, but you are also within driving range of downtown Vancouver, which is really not that far via highway. Amenities are always at the forefront of any new real estate property development and in Abbotsford projects, this is no different. Offering a wealth of amenities including gyms, concierge, yoga studios, recreational rooms, lounges, media rooms, outdoor terraces, patios etc, Abbotsford property provides a great opportunity for you to experience urban living in a quiet setting. In addition, new condos in Abbotsford provide the utmost luxury items in finishes and features, rivaling those of the prestigious downtown Vancouver high-rise condo towers.
