Real Estate in Hammond

Maple Ridge is one of the most rapidly growing cities in the Lower Mainland, as home buyers look for more affordable places to live outside Vancouver and the cities nearest to it. Maple Ridge allows potential homebuyers without sky-high budgets to enter the market. 

While new developments are springing up across Maple Ridge these days, Hammond’s stock of available properties primarily consists of older single-family homes that offer affordability and spaciousness. In Hammond, you’ll find quaint two and three-bedroom homes built in the 1940s and 1950s excellent for smaller families, given their large yards and proximity to schools and park areas. These older Hammond homes have frequently undergone extensive updates, making them move-in ready. 

Many of the streets in Hammond offer excellent tranquillity, as many of its areas have little traffic and low noise levels. The busier areas are those nearest to the Golden Ears Bridge and the Lougheed Highway. However, what these parts of Hammond lack in quietness they make up for in the convenience of transportation options they provide to residents. 

In Hammond, nearly half of the homes were built in the 1980s, while the remaining in the 1960s and earlier. Unlike in more urban parts of Maple Ridge, a substantial majority of the properties in Hammond are detached single-family homes. However, there are some duplexes and townhouses available to real estate investors. The average-sized property in Hammond falls in the three to four-bedroom range. 

Real estate investors looking for rental properties in Hammond could gravitate towards the affordable condo units just to the west of the Maple Ridge Golf Course. More than three-quarters of Hammond residents own their own homes, while the rest are renters. There are two-bedroom condo units in this part of Hammond built in the 1980s and 1990s and offer ample living space and private, fenced yard areas. 

A little to the north of the Hammond Stadium, you’ll find larger family homes featuring more than 2,500 sq. ft. of floor space. Typically built in the 1980s, these detached homes offer plenty of room for growing families and frequently feature upwards of four bedrooms. For first-time homebuyers looking to enter the market, the possibility of one or two-bedroom suites with separate entrances can go a long way towards improving the affordability of these Hammond properties. 

About Hammond

Hammond can be found in the southwest region of Maple Ridge, with the city of Pitt Meadows bordering it to the west and the mighty Fraser River bordering it to the south. The Golden Ears Bridge runs right through the neighbourhood, offering straightforward transportation options to nearby cities, including Langley and Surrey

Hammond is one of the oldest communities in the Lower Mainland and was settled by John and William Hammond back in the mid-19th century. It was home to the first train station in Maple Ridge, which led to significant development in the area. In the mid-20th century, it was briefly known as Swede Row because the site attracted so many Swedish loggers and mill workers. The neighbourhood was home to a cedar mill for much of the 20th century, though the mill closed back in 2019. 

Those looking for an affordable and charming area of Maple Ridge to call home may find just what they’re looking for in Hammond. The Hammond Stadium is a hub for baseball in the area. Cycling, golf, and soccer are also popular in this active little neighbourhood.
