Maple Ridge Real Estate and New Property Developments
A number of new property projects are now started in the rapidly growing city of Maple Ridge in the Lower Mainland. With many of the downtown core and city dwellings becoming unaffordable for many first time home buyers and young families, Maple Ridge real estate and new property developments provides a breather in terms of costs and value for these young people looking for spacious homes and lots of amenities and conveniences around their private home.

New home buyers looking for large single family detached housing in the city of Maple Ridge real estate market are now able to choose from a wide variety of Maple Ridge family housing in duplex homes, large houses, townhomes at Trails Edge, Copperstone Ridge, Highland Vistas, Highland Forest and Silver Ridge.

What housing options are there in Maple Ridge?
In many cases, because of new Maple Ridge building codes and also the fact that Maple Ridge is not a condo apartment municipality, many of the new Maple Ridge real estate options open to you and other home buyers are single family detached homes. There are many duplex style Maple Ridge homes for families as well. Most properties will be rather large in comparison to other homes elsewhere in the Greater Vancouver regional district, and most Maple Ridge homes will have large fenced yards, two or three levels of interior living space and plenty of storage. This is what is so valuable in terms of you purchasing a large home in Maple Ridge real estate as a young family as you can grow into the home as you have more children or pets. In many other areas such as downtown Vancouver or even the condo apartments in Surrey, young families are looking to move out (and couples too) as their family grows. The new Maple Ridge homes and real estate will provide you with a sanctuary that you can call your home for years and possibly generations to come. The new Maple Ridge real estate developments are all master planned single family home neighbourhoods that have tree lined streets, impressive streetscapes and exterior architecture and the most impressive of amenities and interior finishes to the discerning home buyer. Maple Ridge property is now available at a very affordable cost and you can catch the wave and purchase a single family detached Maple Ridge home or family housing for the price of a downtown Vancouver condominum. There is no comparison when it comes to property value.

The Future of the Maple Ridge Housing Market Values
Many home buyers ask how much more expensive Greater Vancouver and Maple Ridge real etate property values can go. The answer is only UP. As history has repeated itself over and over again, and as economies pick up and wages/salaries increase, the cost of living and the cost of Maple Ridge real estate will continue on its upward spiral. Unlike many other municipalities in Greater Vancouver, the new Maple Ridge homes and other duplex style townhomes have not increased at the same rate as other areas in the Lower Mainland. Because of this, new real estate maple Ridge family homes and townhouses have not been overvalued, and in many cases are under valued for what the homes are worth. This results in more demand as other areas become unaffordable for the young family while Maple Ridge homes steadily increase in real estate value and long term growth. Therefore, Maple Ridge, with its infrastructure, transportation routes and in migration should see an increase in Maple Ridge property values over hte coming decade. Steady, not like the previous spikes we have seen, but definitely upwards.
