General Overview

BC, Lower MainlandAnother place where prices seem to be bucking the stagnant valley trend is Mission. Well on the other side of the river, but part of the "Fraser Valley" this quiet, but growing municipality doesn't have all the locational advantages of White Rock but you pay a lot less - about $185,740 - for the same typical four bedroom home. According to the statistics, detached home prices in Mission are up 9.8% over last September's level. (What Mission needs is a stronger downtown area, people still go to Maple Ridge to shop).

MISSION "THE JEWEL OF THE VALLEY" was founded in 1892. Located on a southern slope overlooking the lush valley of the mighty Fraser River, Mission is a rapidly growing and dynamic center. Mission is surrounded by incredible beauty of mountainous vistas and natural forest settings.
