Pointe-Claire gets top ranking as most attractive city in the greater Montréal area

According to MoneySense analysis of real estate market

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, and members of City Council are proud to announce that Pointe-Claire properties rank first in the real estate market for the greater Montréal area, according to an independent study carried out by Canadian experts from the MoneySense.ca website.

“These results speak for themselves, and they’re based on both real estate market value and quality of life,” says Mayor Trudeau. “Experts actually describe Pointe-Claire as a real estate ‘gem’. It’s got large homes and nice yards for families, and it’s the answer for commuters who want to avoid the bridges.”

The study also indicates that because of the diversity of its residential offer, the Pointe-Claire market is less likely to be affected by a downward correction in prices. Study criteria include average sale prices for homes, market trends, and realtor rankings.

Mayor Trudeau notes that quality of life has been one of Pointe-Claire’s major assets ever since it was established. “City administrations have worked systematically to maintain this, as evidenced by our 2015-2019 Strategic Plan. This helps us to keep on adjusting services to meet the population’s needs and improving our management processes with a focus on sustainable development, based on our taxpayers’ ability to pay.”

“People in Pointe-Claire also have a strong commitment to community,” says the mayor. “This really enhances quality of life and security. One example is the Aid for Seniors Program, which won an award last year.”

A recent scientific survey also indicates that 98% of Pointe-Claire residents appreciate the quality of life in Pointe-Claire and 92% are satisfied with municipal services.

“All of these factors explain why Pointe-Claire ranks so high in the greater Montréal area and why we will keep on working to preserve these assets,” concludes Mayor Trudeau.
