Wondering how your home value (or purchasing budget) measures up against neighbouring areas – or how much it has changed over the past year?

A series of interactive heat maps from real estate website EstateBlock is a great visual representation of the most and least expensive areas in the Lower Mainland to buy a home.

Using benchmark home price data from November 2018, the website created individual price maps for single-family homes, condos and townhomes, in areas from Squamish and the Sunshine Coast through to Mission and the Fraser Valley.

The number-crunchers also created separate heat maps for each of those home types based on price growth (or decline) since October 2018, and since November 2017.

EstateBlock also ranked MLS neighbourhoods in terms of most and least expensive for different home types.
