If you live in the Greater Vancouver area, we get spoiled with our weather. We are lucky that we have very moderate climate conditions. Our spring and summers are warm while our fall and winter months are mild. Rarely do we experience extreme weather conditions. This allows for water sports and, at the same time, snow related activities on our mountains. We do get our share of rain (a.k.a. liquid sunshine) throughout the year with the usual complaints; however, we really love the sun when it does appear. Our city is surrounded by majestic mountains to the North, breathtaking seascapes to the south, while the rainfall allows for lush green lawns and fresh water all year round. This would explain why so many out of town visitors arrive they end up wanting to live here. And they buy our real estate. Combine this with our stable political and economic environment, you can imagine why the international community looks at us as their desired destination.
