What makes the top five neighbourhoods stand out?

1. Laval-Ouest (Fabreville)

Laval is positioned as the “heart of Greater Montreal,” primarily because it’s close to all transportation routes and can easily link up all major centres in Quebec. In other words, it’s a hub and that’s great for commuters. As a result, families have flocked to this area for some time and almost 85% of those that live in this community are homeowners. When you compare this to downtown Montreal, where more than 80% are renters, you begin to see why Laval-Ouest bubbled to the top of our ranking this year (up 34 spots from last year).

Homes in this community tend to be older often built before 1980 and two-thirds of all households have children. Commuters like this neighbourhood as it’s only 15 to 30 minutes away from downtown Montreal, depending on weather conditions and time of day.

The average single-family house price, in 2017, for this neighbourhood was just over $262,000, which is $120,000 less than the average home price of Greater Montreal. This great value is finally getting noticed, too, with prices growing by 11% in 2017. Thankfully, buyers can still expect good value as Laval-Ouest’s one-year growth rate was nowhere near the biggest gainers last year, such as Gore, the No. 5 neighbourhood in our 2017 ranking. Gore experienced a 31% price jump in just one year.
