Here’s what $500,000 (or less) will buy in the Tri-Cities
This month we’re looking at prices in the Tri-Cities.
For those with only a passing familiarity with Port Moody, Port Coquitlam and Coquitlam—yes, it’s confusing—here’s a quick breakdown.
Port Moody is the one with access to the Burrard Inlet and beer—lots and lots of craft breweries, to be specific. They’re lined up in a row across from Rocky Point Park, a popular family spot on the Inlet. The city has positioned itself as the “City of the Arts,” and among its attractions is the Port Moody Arts Centre. The smallest of the Tri-Cities, PM is bordered by Coquitlam on the east and south and by Burnaby to the west. According to the 2021 census, the population is just over 33,500.
On the north bank of the Fraser River, where it joins the Pitt, we find the bedroom community known fondly as PoCo. The 2021 Census gave its population as 61,498. On the north bank of the confluence of the Fraser River, where it meets the Pitt, Port Coquitlam is under Coquitlam and bordered by the Coquitlam River on the west.
