New Westminster Homes for Sale

About New Westminster

New Westminster, or New West as nearly 80,000 locals lovingly call it, sits on the bank of the Fraser River. The town's borders extend to a small part of Lulu Island. However, most residents call the mainland portion of the city home.

New Westminster is proud of its older architecture and maintains a vibrant historic district. It's easy to find homes in the older styles to keep with the town's feel. Some outstanding examples of historic architectural styles include a beautiful replica of a Queen Anne home.

New Westminster offers an intriguing mix of the old and new and appeals to a wide array of residents. Home prices range from moderate to expensive, with some luxurious options available.

However, where the town stands out is its ability to wine and dine residents and visitors. Several fine eateries use freshly caught fish to create seafood masterpieces to wash down with craft beer.
