Find a Home in Vancouver

Moving to most cities in Canada is seen as a way to achieve a better quality of life for yourself and your family. This is true in many cases, and a great number of people have thought of Canada as being a better place to live, no matter where they originally came from. So, if you’re thinking of making the move for yourself, whether you’re moving with your family or just going it alone, we can give you the tips to help you out.

As a starting point, we recommend ensuring you’re getting the help of a brilliant local Real Estate Agent. Not only can they provide you with the expertise and local knowledge that you need to find a property that’s exactly what you need, but they’re a brilliant support mechanism to take a little bit of the pressure off of you during an extremely stressful time. Macrealty are Western Canada’s largest integrated firm, so are well worth taking a look at if you’re planning on moving into the area. You can find their contact details on their website here.

When it comes to finding a new home, there are a few options you can consider. Try looking on some of the bigger Real Estate portals such as Homes.com, Point2Homes or Vancouver House Finders. Alternatively, you can ask around the local community if anyone knows where there’s property available, and keep an eye out in shop windows  for anyone who chooses to put a notice up in a window to find new tenants – this will be especially likely for house share properties, so if your plan is to move in with roommates, this will be a good place for you to look.

Remember, if you’re moving from overseas you’ll need to ensure you’ve got all the correct visas for living and working to avoid any unfortunate legal complications. You can find more information about Canadian visas for work, travel and residence here.
