Whatcom real estate guide & listings for sale

Whatcom is a very good neighbourhood to buy a home in for those who prefer a relaxed ambience. Parks are very well-spread out and there are around 20 of them close by for residents to explore, making them easy to get to. This neighbourhood is very quiet overall, as the streets are generally very tranquil.


The car is very often the preferred way to get around in Whatcom. Nearby highways are quite easy to reach from anywhere in this area, and it is especially convenient to access a place to park. In contrast, commuting by public transit is difficult in Whatcom. Nonetheless, there are a few bus lines, and bus stops are not very far-removed from most residences. Walking is not very practical for home buyers in Whatcom because very few daily errands can be run on foot.


Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing most dwellings in Whatcom, while duplexes and townhouses make up most of the remaining housing stock. This area is primarily composed of three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. About 90% of the population of this neighbourhood own their home and 10% are renters. The homes in this part of Abbotsford are very modern, since roughly one third of its dwellings were built between 1990 and 2000, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1980s and the 2000s.


Parents and their kids may find it challenging to reach high schools and primary schools on foot. In addition, there are only a few daycares and therefore they can be a long walk away. When it comes to eating, some residents in Whatcom may be able to buy groceries by walking, while others will have to turn to another means of transportation. There are also a few options for those who care about nearby restaurants and cafes.
