Neighbourhoods

Neighbourhoods

Due to the extremely large size of Montreal, it is divided into 19 boroughs, each subdivided further into several neighbourhoods. For the sake of simplicity, many prefer to refer to the general areas of Montreal as Centre, South, East, West, and North.

The center of Montreal

The center of Montreal is home to the boroughs of Mount Royal, Ville Marie, Outremont, and Cotes-des-Neiges-Notre-Dame-de-Grace. This is where Downtown and Chinatown are located within Montreal. This is the area where the city’s universities, skyscrapers, and main shopping outlets lie.

There are a booming number of restaurants, clubs, and pubs at each and every corner. Many of the major events hosted annually in the city of Montreal tend to be within one of the boroughs in the center of Montreal.

Neighbourhoods

Eastern Montreal

Eastern Montreal hosts the Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, Villeray-Saint-Michel-Par-Extenstion, and Rosemont-La Petite -Patrie boroughs.

In addition to having the Olympic Village and the infamous Montreal Botanical Garden, there are many public libraries and churches of various denominations that exist within the area.

Southern Montreal

Southern Montreal includes the Lachine, LaSalle, South West and Verdun boroughs.

These tend to be far more rural in nature, which has given rise to an influx of residents who wish to seek peace and quiet from the daily chaos of nightlife in the downtown area of Montreal.

This area is best known for its contemporary art galleries and hiking paths. There are fewer restaurants here, but they tend to be at the high-end in terms of price.

Western Montreal

L'Ile-Bizard-Sainte-Genevieve, Pierrefonds-Roxboro, Saint-Laurent, and Ahuntsic-Cartierville are the boroughs that are located within Western Montreal.

You can expect to find nearby access to the highway routes leading to downtown Montreal, trade schools for adults wishing to further continue their education, and several nature parks for those who want to take a leisurely stroll.

Saint-Laurent also happens to be the 2nd largest employment hub in Montreal, only falling behind the downtown area located in the center of the city.

Northen Montreal

Last but not least, the northern area of Montreal is divided into the following boroughs: Saint-Leonard, Anjou, Riviere-des-Prairies-Pointe-aux-Trembles, and Montreal-Nord.

This area is by far the most diverse in terms of ethnicities, nationalities, and backgrounds amongst its residents.

The features you can see within these boroughs include shopping malls, a nearby nature walk along Riviere des Prairies river, and multiple arenas for recreational sports activites.

Real Estate Market

The centre of Montreal is predominately apartment rentals, low-rise and high-rise condos, along with the occasional townhome or two. For university students, there are a large number of places where they can stay in close proximity to their university and other amenities at an affordable rental price. Young professionals can benefit from the same privilege, although many of them can leverage their high salaries towards making a down-payment on the more expensive condos within the city area.

Eastern Montreal has a very apartment- and townhome -dominated real estate market, and has by far some of the cheapest prices that you will find within the city of Montreal. In spite of an abundance of these types of homes, the communities generally tend to be very quiet during the day and night.

Southern Montreal’s rural nature allows for the development of larger townhomes that are attractive to upper -class individuals and families. The occasional apartment and condo are present, but newer developments will see a rise in the number of detached homes that are available to prospective homebuyers.

Western Montreal’s properties tend to strike a balance between homes, apartments, and low-rise/high-rise condos. There is enough variety such that you will see options available for middle class individuals and those who tend to be wealthier.

In Northern Montreal, there tends to be a divide between poorer families and upper-middle class families, which is often reflected in the pricing of the homes. The homes here are mostly suburban homes that tend to be semi-detached, although there is the occasional bungalow or apartment within each neighbourhood.

  • Average Home Price: $321,700
  • Average Rent Price: $944.83
  • Average Condo Price: $331,766
  • Average Detached Home Price: $325,900
Home Style Average Price
2 storey $562,501
Bungalow $385,025
Condo $331,766

The following table, based on data taken from the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA’s) National MLS® Report for April 2016 (the latest information available), demonstrates how homes in LSTAR’s jurisdiction continue to maintain their affordability compared to other major Ontario and Canadian centers.
