Fraserview is a cute community of Vancouver that sits along the northern shores of the Fraser River between Knight Street Bridge and Kerr Street and East 54 th Avenue, offering many residential single-family homes to invest in. In addition to homes, Fraserview is also rich in commercial properties where diverse dining opportunities and shopping locations can be found. With Victoria Drive running alongside Fraserview, it delivers easy access to many conveniences, and also provides easy access into and out of the area. Add to that the beauty of the natural surroundings, and you have found yourself the ideal real estate investment opportunity within Fraserview.

The Livability of Fraserview

Fraserview is largely a single-family home residential community offering a variety of multi-cultural shops and restaurants along Victoria Drive. In recent years, another area called ‘Fraserlands” has popped up in this community, bringing with it condos and townhomes, and making it a more desirable location for single business professionals looking to live on the outskirts of Vancouver, while still having easy access to the city itself.

The History of Fraserview

Like the vast majority of Vancouver, Fraserview was once First Nations land, growing into an industrial region with the Canadian Pacific Railway, and then turning into the residential community it is today. It was a busy location for First Nations peoples at the time, offering a trail leading in and out of Vancouver into Burnaby and New Westminster. Once Europeans began visiting to the region, around 1860, this pathway became a popular passage in and out of the city, and officially became part of the City of Vancouver in 1920.

The Future of Fraserview

As one of many suburban areas of Vancouver there is always room for growth, and although Fraserview is already largely developed, the community at large continues to see growth and new construction rise up, bringing new real estate investment opportunities to the area, and broadening the prospects for those looking to get into a home in Vancouver.

Fraserview is a great area to call home, and I would love to help walk you through this Vancouver original, providing you with a tour of available homes for sale in the area!


Today East Van is home to all walks of life, and offers everything from opulent to afforable, modern to remodeled, and spacious to quaint. East Vancouver is bordered to the north by the Burrard Inlet, with the Fraser River to the south, and the city of Burnaby to the east. In addition, the community of East Van is divided by Main Street on the West Side of Vancouver, spanning quite a large area and giving people a variety of real estate buying options on every corner.


Fraserview extends from the Fraser River all the way to East 41st Avenue, as well as borders to the west of Knight Street, and includes Elliot Street and Vivian Drive to the east.

Considered part of the “south slopes”, it faces the Fraser River and overlooks Mitchell Island in the region of Richmond and towards Delta. So it is fairly far-reaching with views to match.

Victoria Drive holds most of the commercial excitement of the Fraserview area, offering a wide variety of ethnic shops and services to conveniently serve the locals. The Punjabi Market, a 6 block area on Main Street features some of the best Indian restaurants in the city, as well as exotic fresh produce, spices, silk, jewelry and more!


With a host of single-family residences, and a smattering of townhomes, it is not an area where condos are really a real estate option, but more a thriving community for growing families and long-term residents. That being said, an offshoot area known as Fraserlands or the River District, has been built up in recent years, redeveloping industrial areas into residential ones, and creating new condo buying options for those who wish to call this location home.

The Fraserview neighbourhood offers 8 parks, as well as walking trails, a library and the David Thompson Secondary School just off or Argyle Drive. It is a great community in which to live, one which I would be happy to tour you through at your convenience!

So whether you call Vancouver home and are looking for a local community fix, or are contemplating buying in Vancouver and wish to wander the districts that make up our fabulous city …ensure Fraserview is one of your stops along the way. It’s a genuine gem, and well worth the stop!
