Abbotsford Homes for Sale

About Abbotsford

Boasting the title of one of British Columbia’s agriculturally rich areas and Canada’s most charitable city, Abbotsford lies in the Fraser Valley region next to the Canadian and United States border. Its proximity to Washington state enables most of the city’s real estate to offer northern views of British Columbia’s Coast Mountains and southern views of Mount Baker.

Thanks to the Fraser River, mountains, and rich soils, agriculture is the city's primary industry. In fact, the area has some of the most intensively farmed lands in Canada, with options ranging from berry and vegetables to dairy, poultry, and hog farms.

Aside from a booming agricultural industry, the city is also Canada’s third most ethnically diverse, primarily due to the vast influx of migrants in the 1900s. This city is a unique option for many. Making Abbotsford your next city of residence promises to offer you a much-needed change of pace.
