West Vancouver Homes for Sale

About West Vancouver

With almost 43,000 residents, West Vancouver is a bustling town with upmarket houses and large, expansive yards. Homes in the area are higher in price than the nearby Maple Ridge, but the standard of living matches the property values. The area doesn't allow manufacturing and is popular with retirees and professionals who commute.

The surrounding landscape is hard to beat, especially when viewing the city from Stanley Park with the Coast Mountains in the background. Take a 180° turn, and the vista features Vancouver Island and Howe Sound.

West Vancouver was also the site of Canada's first-ever shopping mall. Now ranking as the most affluent municipality in Canada, you can find plenty of opportunities for retail therapy in town. Upmarket entertainment and fine dining round off your experience with something to please everyone within easy driving distance. West Vancouver is a clean, well-run municipality for the more discerning buyer.
