Hi everyone!! This forum is so helpful, I hope you guys can help me too! My husband and I are moving to Vancouver and would love advice on what neighbourhood would be the best for us! We have friends living in the Commercial Drive/Main Street areas which sounds like it has a great vibe. I'm an artist and we both love being involved with the community and activism. So we'd maybe like to be around there or a short drive away, but what is the housing like?

We are mid-20s with a baby and dogs so we definitely want to live in a nice safe area with trees and a yard for playing/entertaining friends. We love nature! We'd love to have a little house with character that we could make into a home. Any suggestions on where would be a good place for us?

the tri-city area is nice but a small house will run you around $450K-$550 any house in downtown vancouver will be over a million and that would be a small run down house it is very expensive out here but if you serach around it is a great place to live and great community and good schools...anyways hope this helped and welcome to vancouver
