    Aldergrove

    Great value for your dollar

    Aldergrove is a little off the beaten path, about 15 minutes East of Langley City, just before you hit Abbotsford. It is a small community of fewer than 20,000 residents, but still has all the conveniences you will need within a short drive.

    Due to the location, the homes for sale in Aldergrove have prices that tend to be 10% to 20% less than your standard Langley City home. And because of this, many young families are buying detached homes from the list of Aldergrove homes for sale and putting a little love into them. They find the commute is worth it – bang for buck.

    Geographically, Aldergrove is split into two population centers: Aldergrove and Aldergrove East, which is actually part of Abbotsford.

    Aldergrove At A Glance

    Modernizing Quickly

    Young families love the affordability of the Aldergrove townhomes for sale and the fact that they can buy a detached fixer-upper for the same price as a large Langley townhome. This is breathing new life into the community and businesses, and the area is changing quickly.

    Langley Township is spending $40 million to transform the downtown core in the hopes of attracting thousands of new residents over the next two decades. You will find many townhomes and condos for sale in Aldergrove. To make it better, Aldergrove is filled with many independently-owned pubs, restaurants, and activities for families to suit a wide variety of personalities.

    Many of these businesses have been around for years and have plenty of character and a down-home feel. The infamous Alder-Inn has recently closed, and depending on who you ask; it is either a great thing or a tragedy.

    Aldergrove comprises a mix of a small number of condos and townhouses, but mostly single-family detached homes. So, you can pick any from the Aldergrove condos for sale or the townhomes for sale as they are perfect for a single-family.

    Most of the homes were built in the late 1970s and early 1980s, with some newer detached homes in East Aldergrove built in the last decade.

    Because of the affordability, there are more rentals in Aldergrove than most Langley neighbourhoods. The lots are generally serviced with water, hydro, and sewer, and most have gas, except for the houses in the community’s rural areas.

    Recently, there has been some new condo and townhouse construction near the downtown core, along Fraser Hwy. So, if you are looking for some townhouses or condos for sale in Aldergrove, head here to get one.

    Aldergrove Lifestyle

    An Up-And-Coming Town With A Little Hint Of Country

    Aldergrove Is Great For

    Young Families

    Without a doubt, Aldergrove is the most affordable area of Langley. You can buy one of the Aldergrove townhomes for sale, or a detached home with a small yard for the same price as a Langley City townhouse. If you have young children and want some land, Aldergrove can be a great place to set down roots.

    Investors

    We have had many clients purchase a two-level detached home, fix it up, and then split it into an upstairs rental unit and a downstairs rental unit. You can even get an excellent price for the condos for sale in Aldergrove, whose cost would eventually increase in the future.

    Imagining Your Life In Aldergrove

    How you’ll spend your weekends…
    Once you get one of the homes for sale in Aldergrove, you will love checking out the shops or grabbing a bite from a local restaurant in downtown. The summer activities are endless with the new Otter Co-Op Outdoor Experience and numerous parks around the city.

    Restaurants?
    For delicious, generous portions, we recommend checking out Bob’s Bar and Grill. The Brick House Bistro is another Aldergrove staple you have to try.

    Pubs?
    Yes, Aldergrove has pubs. The Fox and Hounds pub is a classic pub, serving your go-to pub food and drinks. It’s definitely the local watering hole.

    Entertainment…
    Lots. Twilight Drive-In Theatre, Otter Co-op Outdoor Experience Waterpark, and the Greater Vancouver Zoo to name a few.

    What you’ll do after work…
    Hit the new rec center for a workout, go check out a movie at the drive-in, tinker in your garage, or head home and fire up the BBQ for a family dinner. There’s plenty to keep you busy after buying one of the Aldergrove homes for sale and settle in.

    Hobbies you can pick up…
    Grab a book from the Aldergrove library, take the dog for a walk in one of the numerous parks, do some gardening, visit with your neighbours, or explore the countryside. Another big bonus: getting one of the Aldergrove townhomes for sale means that you’re just minutes from the US border.

    Aldergrove is…

    Great For Families

    With Aldergrove condos for sale at low prices, lots of room, and plenty of activities, Aldergrove is excellent for families just starting out.

    Pet-Friendly

    Absolutely. There are lots of parks and a couple off-leash dog parks in the area, and a lot of businesses will let you in with your pup.

    An Up and Comer

    The Township is spending $40 million to transform the downtown core in the hopes of attracting thousands of new residents over the next two decades.

    What You’ll Love

    The prices of the Aldergrove homes for sale can’t be beaten if you want to live in Langley and get more for your money.

    We have had many clients skip moving from a downtown Langley condo/townhouse straight to an Aldergrove single-family home. Because of its location and the small shops and businesses down Fraser Hwy, Aldergrove truly feels like small-town living.

    And once you get one of the homes for sale in Aldergrove, you will enjoy everything about it. Oh, there’s always plenty of room to park and very little traffic.

    What You Might Not Like

    Unless you love driving, the commute is one of the more negative aspects of living in Aldergrove.

    It is a little further out, and Fraser Highway can be a little slow during rush hour if you don’t time it right. Expect a 15- to 20-minute drive to any major mall or shops once you buy one of the Aldergrove townhomes for sale and settle in. 

    Walkability is also tough, so you will want to own a vehicle unless you live right downtown.

    Rentals can start as low as $600 a month and go up from there and many detached homes have more than one rental unit in them.

    Most are pet friendly, and parking generally isn’t an issue as there is plenty of street parking.
