More About Surrey Real Estate

Located in British Columbia’s Lower Mainland, on the southern side of the Fraser River and north of the Canada-U.S border, Surrey is one of Metro Vancouver’s 21 municipalities. It is the second-largest city in the region by land area with 316.4 square kilometres (122.2 sq. mi) and the second-most populous with over 580,000 inhabitants. The city is also on the territories of several Salish People groups, including the land-based nations of Katzie, Kwantlen, and Semiahmoo.

Surrey, BC, Real Estate Market

The Surrey real estate market can barely keep up with the city’s growing pace, which reflects in the significant increase in home prices. The average price of homes for sale in Surrey is currently $1.9M, pretty similar to the price points in residential areas of neighbouring cities like Vancouver or Burnaby.

The city boasts 26 neighbourhoods where properties range from $596K to around $2.5M depending on construction date, square footage, location, and style. The homeownership rate is about 73%, which means Surrey’s accessible amenities, high-ranked schools, and beautiful outdoors keep convincing homebuyers to pay the purchase price in order to call home any of the city’s well-established communities.

Single-detached homes are the most popular housing type in Surrey, followed by townhomes, duplexes, and low-rise condo apartments. Surrey is relatively a young city in terms of construction, with approximately one-third of the dwellings having been built after the 2000s. The remaining home stock was raised between the ’60s and the ’80s.

Surrey Average Property Prices

  • Average detached house price:$2.8M
  • Average condo price: $576K
  • Average townhouse price: $938K
