It’s perhaps not too surprising that house prices rank highly when purchasers in Vancouver are choosing where to live along with other factors such as proximity to work and family. However a new poll by Angus Reid does provide some interesting insights into the decisions and concerns of Vancouverites. The vast majority for example say that people born in the city are being priced out and a large number have considered moving to a more affordable area. Many say they have had to give up a lot in order to live where they want. On the plus side Vancouver scores highly as a place to raise children and most areas of the city rank well in terms of safety. See all the results.
