Affordability is drawing people to Surrey and helping fuel its torrid growth
Crystal Williams and her boyfriend Dan Rocha are moving to South Surrey from Vancouver’s West End this month. They will be trading their approximately 600-sq.-ft. apartment for a townhouse three times the size. Bikes and skies will no longer be stored in the living room.

Crystal Williams and her boyfriend are typically active Vancouverites. And they would have liked to have stayed in the city, but they just couldn’t find the space they wanted for the price they could afford.
And so, instead of buying in Vancouver, they move out of their one-bedroom West End apartment on Feb. 28 to take possession of a three-bedroom townhome (with three baths and a den) in Surrey.
