Surrey Real Estate
The second most populous metropolitan area in the Greater Vancouver area is Surrey, home to many new real estate developments. By last count, Surrey real estate encompasses about 25% of all new properties being built by many of the top property developers and builders in British Columbia.

With no shortage of land, and a booming population with great migration into the city, Surrey real estate has really become an affordable, liveable and beautiful place to call home. Homebuyers and real estate investors have flocked to surrey since the 1980s when transportation routes and nodes starting improving between the City of Surrey and Vancouver. However, with many businesses relocating to Surrey, many home buyers and owners who live in this city, also work here as well.

Recent Surrey Pre-Construction Condos and New Developments
Did you know that Surrey real estate is home to some of the largest master-planned communities in teh province of BC? Yes, as well as many of the highest and tallest pre-construction Surrey condo high-rise tower developments. Many areas and communities in Surrey are being transformed by the recent boom in industry, retail, home sales and equity and many homebuyers in this city are making use of their home equity and purchasing investment condo properties to rent out long-term. With great recreational facilities, amenities and all the shopping that you would want, pre-construction Surrey real estate holds firm as many of the other municipalities have reached a saturation point. With an ongoing in migration from other cities and provinces, Surrey pre-construction condos and luxury residences have been snatched up off-the-plan even before construction even starts. Most of the new Surrey real estate projects are pre-construction and pre-sales condo tower residences or large master-planned communities surrounded by lots of greenery, parks and amenities that you can walk to. The one thing that Surrey has going for it over any other city in the Lower Mainland is its close proximity to downtown Vancouver, large open spaces for new property developments and the genuine homebuyer interest in purchasing new Surrey condos at pre-construction pricing. This bodes well for many builders and property developers who have focussed more on this city than Vancouver itself.

Some of the most recent new Surrey real estate projects include the Waterstone Phase 1 condos at the Promenade, Salus Living, the master-planned presales Urban Village community, CityPoint in Whalley, and the Aura Flats and Townhomes. These are just a few of the many new condo developments and pre-construction Surrey townhome projects ongoing in this growing city. It is also noted here that within the next 20 years, Surrey's population will exceed Vancouver proper, making it the largest city in all of Western Canada for the first time. And with the recent expansion of the SkyTrain stations, highways and infrastructure projects, Surrey real estate values will continue to rise as the demand will definitely exceed the supply in upcoming years.

What's in Store for Surrey Condominiums and Townhomes
New Surrey homes and pre-construction condos are great for families and couples who want to get into the market. First time home buyers have flocked to the new Surrey real estate developments in order to get into the property market before they are priced out. Unfortunately, many of the downtown Vancouver pre-sales condos are going for half a million dollars in today's current market. In South or Central Surrey, there are many new single family Surrey homes as well as townhomes/townhouses that will cost less than the price of a one bedroom condo in downtown! Isn't that just amazing. Not only will you own the land and dirt that you live on, but you will have more than four or sometimes up to 10 times as much space in a beautifully master-planned townhome development. Other choices for first-time homebuyers are Central surrey's new condo developments that have reached the Surrey real estate marketplace with a storm of hype that is being backed up with great locations, affordable pricing, amazing value and craftsmanship details. For many homebuyers, these are the things that will influence them in terms of purchasing a new Surrey condo pre-construction property or opt for a larger single family home or townhouse.

Regardless of where you look, South, Central or anywhere in between, you will see new signs popping up everywhere for new properties coming onto the marketplace. the most recent Surrey pre-construction real estate launches for both condos and townhomes include: RedLeaf Crescent, Charlton Park, Augusta at Provinceton, West, St. Andrews at Northview, Lotus Townhomes, Surrey Waterstone condos, Vernazza, Escada Luxury Residences, Woods at Provinceton, Arbour Village, Sunset Grove Surrey community, Wyndham Lane, Aura Townhomes and Flats, City Point Surrey pre-construction condos, Compass, Sky Towers, Tate Living Row Homes by MOSAIC,Quattro 3 Surrey real estate offerings, Ovation Condos, Access. Salus, Calera at Clayton Village in pre-sales and Kennedy Trail.

East Clayton Surrey Community Snapshot: A Flourishing Subdivision
A great article by Susan B for the MetroNews. Not so long ago, East Clayton real estate community in Surrey was primarily rolling farmland. It was a quiet, rural area of Surrey real estate where you could find one of the Lower Mainland’s few remaining drive-in movie theatres, a gas station, plus one of the eclectic co-op hardware stores that carries everything from tractors and power tools to ice cream cones, ribbons and lace. There wasn’t a whole lot more in the East Clayton Surrey real estate district at all. Today, the new East Clayton neighbourhood is in the final states of transforming its country landscape into contemporary suburbia with a distinctly family oriented leaning. Shopping malls have introduced a host of big box retailers as well as one of the Lower Mainland’s first Thrifty Foods into the new Surrey East Clayton community. That ubiquitous symbol of urbane living, the local latte bar, can be found on most commercial corners. And new East Clayton housing of all types continues to come out of the ground on a seemingly daily basis in this Surrey real estate community. East Clayton real estate Surrey neighbourhood also offers some attractive housing prices with the benefit of the fact virtually all of the supply here is new or near new. Surprisingly, despite the recent proliferation of multi-family Surrey real estate development, single family East Clayton houses still represent the largest proportion of homes currently on offer. The good news is that it’s relatively easy to find an attractive, well appointed East Clayton house in Surrey real estate market with three or four bedrooms for between $450,000 to $500,000. An extra $50,000 will often get you five or even six bedrooms for these Surrey East Clayton homes. These new East Clayton houses tend to have character/heritage architecture, compact lots, plus all the bells and whistles – granite countertops, nine foot ceilings and stainless steel appliances. A number, like the now under construction Surrey East Clayton Hudson Crossing, also have legal mortgage helpers making this an even more affordable option for first time Surrey homebuyers or young families. Available East Clayton apartments are low-rise, typically newer than five years, and seldom push past the $300,000 benchmark price. The Surrey East Clayton townhouses continue to offer solid value with approximately half of the 66 resale units listed at press time carrying price tags of $350,000 or less with the most expensive 2065 square foot townhome logging in at just $445,000. Two Surrey East Clayton real estate projects, the approximately three year old Bacara, and the newer TATE Rowhomes by MOSAIC Homes, are designed with live/work designation that’s proved popular among professionals like architects, accountants and fashion designers. One to watch is the now under construction Waterstone East Clayton Surrey real estate development at the corner of 194th Street and 64th Avenue. Offering a diverse range of East Clayton housing styles and prices, this is the East Clayton Surrey first real estate development to offer the resort style luxury of an on site 15,000 square foot clubhouse/spa and is aimed squarely at giving Surrey homeowners the option of remaining in the same neighbourhood as their housing requirements change over time. Waterstone Surrey East Clayton’s initial phase of condominiums starts at $200,000. Build out is expected to take several years.
