The Coquitlam Real Estate Market and New Port Coquitlam Property PoCo
The twin cities of Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam have seen a recent boom in new presale condo high-rise towers and townhouse master planned communities. With Coquitlam real estate, you have the communities of Dayanee Springs, Silver Springs and Westwood Plateau Homes and in Port Coquitlam real estate, you have new affordable housing in the form of apartment high-rise towers and family style townhouses.

With property prices skyrocketing everywhere in the Lower Mainland, residents are looking for more affordable housing options that provide new living spaces that are spacious, clean and contemporary. Both Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam real estate markets fits the bill: being close to downtown Vancouver and Burnaby where many work, Coquitlam real estate is poised for a huge capital gain in appreciation over the next 10 years. In addition, with the SkyTrain and West Coast Express making it out to Port Coquitlam, the property market there will also flourish for many years to come. Therefore, if you purchase Coquitlam real estate or PoCo property now, you are bound to make some good money for years to come by just living and experiencing these beautiful cities.

The Coquitlam Real Estate Market and Where Its Heading
Just a few minutes away from downtown Vancouver and with no bridges to cross to get there, Coquitlam real estate is heading upwards. With a huge number of new and resale condo listings available, it is a good time to purchase your dream condominium home in Coquitlam property market. Some of the most popular areas to consider in the pre-sale Coquitlam real estate market includes the Lanters at Dayanee Springs, a master planned Coquitlam neighbourhood that is affordable and geared towards not only people with expensive tastes, but also first time home buyers. Dayanee Springs also presents also phases of condo home releases, so check out their Presentation Centre today for more information about available suites. Remember though, with any new pre-construction condo purchase, you will need to pay for GST and Property Transfer Tax upon closing of your suite. In addition, the skyline of the presale Coquitlam real estate market is going to be dratsically different in years to come as the Levo Sky residences and the two pre-sale Cora Tower condominiums are built and completed. These high-rise tower residences provide excellent amenities, interior features and solid construction. In addition, there is Tantalus at Silver Spring, a quiet tree lined neighbourhood that provides great single family homes. Lastly, if you are looking for a high-end luxury Coquitlam home, than the Tango at Westwood Plateau may be an option for you. These luxury new Coquitlam homes are new to the property market and are now selling.

Other Master Planned Coquitlam Communities of Homes and Townhomes
If you are looking for new luxury single family Coquitlam home master planned communities you only need to look at the 2 main developments that are front and centre of any news story in this city. The first is called the Foothills at Burke Mountain Coquitlam real estate project. Here, Wesbild Developers has teamed up with Wallmark Homes, Morningstar, MOSAIC, Polygonand several other boutique builders to construct a BuiltGreen single family home community and neighbourhoods within the Foothills of Burke Mountain. These impressively large family homes are affordable, energy efficient and low maintenance and the first three phases have already launched. A series of Foothills Townhomes/Rowhomes at Coquitlam's Burke Mountain real estate will also be launching this fall to give homebuyers a different housing type to choose from. Another master planned community in Coquitlam property market that just launched is the Windsor Gate neighbourhood where you will find a series of townhomes, condos and single family detached homes for sale in the next year. Given the nature of these master-planned pestigious neighbourhoods in the Coquitlam real estate market in addition to those at Westwood Plateau and Dayanee Springs, it is no wonder why many young and growing families are opting to move to Coquitlam for generations to come.

New Port Coquitlam Real Estate and Presale PoCo Condos
Another great community in the Lower Mainland is the municipality of Port Coquitlam, or PoCo as it is affectionately referred to from local residents. The new Port Coquitlam real estate market has seen an incredible rise in the number of presale and new condo developments in and around the downtown PoCo district. In addition, these pre-construction homes are very affordable and Port Coquitlam real estate in general is very easily attainable for first time home buyers and young families. Ranging from one bedroom to two bedroom condominium homes, Port Coquitlam certainly gives any homebuyer a great choice of size, layouts and floor plans to choose from, from a variety of locations and condo developments throughout the city. In addition, there has also been an increase in the number of Port Coquitlam townhome communities where master planned townhouse neighbourhoods are being planned, designed and built for families and empty nesters/retirees to move to. These include rownhomes and two or three level PoCo townhomes for sale, which are in most cases more affordable when it comes to price per square foot. Unlike Coquitlam that has seen a huge increase in the number of pre-build home communities, we don't see that with the Port Coquitlam real estate market as it is centred mostly on new condo residences and townhome communities at the moment. More affordable then its neighbour, PoCo real estate provides a range of old and new, larger sized apartment units, low-rise condo living and downtown residences on the resale market right now as well. Some of the most notable pre-sale Port Coquitlam condo launches include the Shaughnessy at Lions Park, Altura Apartments, Sapphire Condo High-Rise tower and South Verde by Onni Developers.
