I assume you probably want to pay off your student debt ASAP if you want to start a family soon. I would probably live near the suburbs near Vancouver for a cheaper costs of living.

I would really rethink the move. Maybe move to Victoria if you can afford it. Vancouver is not the place it once was and the outlying areas are not as welcoming as they used to be before the real estate madness redistributed communities and happiness. I've lived in Victoria and several different municipalities and I think the quality of life on the island is probably far superior to any place you will find in the Lower Mainland. And the cost of living is not palatable given what you get for your money. JMHO

I think you need to narrow your search.

Chilliwack to West Van are far apart and obviously very different in terms of price.

That's kind of like saying I'm thinking of the Bridal Path or Barrie.

Is all of Surrey really that bad? I thought the White Rock side of Surrey is decent.
