Tri-City Neighbourhood Profile: Port Moody


There are so many reasons to love Port Moody, it's quiet, right on the water, quaint, full of life, and a growing foodie haven. Port Moody has transformed itself over the years into a hub for young families and maturing couples. It's a great safe community to raise your children with fantastic schools and programs to entertain kids of all ages.



Why we love Port Moody:


Like stated in the first paragraph, Port Moody is a safe community. Children still play outside on sunny days and walk home from school, you'll always be greeted with a "hello" when walking your dog through Rocky Point, and you'll never have a shortage of cafes or restaurants to sit at and people watch. This lovely community is really becoming the most desirable neighbourhood to live in the tri-cities and the real estate prices show the demand.


Real Estate in Port Moody:


Port Moody has grown immensely with the additions of Klahanie, Suter Brook, The Station on St. Johns and of course Heritage Mountain. The rapid growth and quality developments have brought people from all over to this city. With the influx of people the demand for homes is greater then 5 years ago, and we are really seeing that demand raise housing prices to a record level. Townhomes in Klahanie range from $650,000 to $900,000, Houses on Heritage Mountain range from $1,000,000 to $2,500,000+. It's a craze that we don't see truly dying off. Port Moody is one of those neighbourhoods that you wont want to leave, it has it all for the suburbs. You are only 30 minutes to downtown (on days without traffic), you're close to West Coast Express, Close to Lakes (Buntzen, White Pine Beach) and the Ocean, You have restaurants, shopping within a 5 minute drive or walk, and you are close to Coquitlam Centre for all the rest of your needs.
