A friend is moving site unseen to Vancouver BC area What areas should she look for a reasonably priced apartment Where can we find crime statistics

The city of Vancouver website has a map that tracks real time crime statistics in the following categories: -Residential break ins -Commercial break ins -Auto theft -Theft from Vehicles While it is geographically specific to just the city of Vancouver, and not the other municipalities around it, it is a good start.As for reasonably priced apartments, that depends on what you think of as “reasonable”.The average rental price for a one bedroom apartment in Vancouver is $1500.00 a month, and the vacancy rate currently sits at 0.03%.

A reasonable priced apartment in Vancouver?Perhaps try Vancouver, Washington.Okay, just kidding.

But honestly no one here thinks renting a Vancouver apartment or owning a Vancouver condo is reasonable.They just aren’t.You could try going outside of the city proper for slightly more moderate rents.

But truly housing is going to eat a big chunk of your budget.Crime ?I wouldn’t worry about it.

Just avoid the Downtown Eastside until you are more familiar with the city.

Crime stats are readily available on line with a similar heading as the question.Police files are happily distorted so don’t bother there.Re accommodation, no where in Vancouver or proximity will she find reasonable housing.
