When we start to hear that entry-level homes are holding an interest for buyers and investors, we can safely say the housing market must be sizzling.

Even those single family town houses that need fixing up and a bit of renovation are getting interest from prospective buyers; and all this comes as the price of entry within the city of Vancouver nudges ever closer to the $1 million mark.

Municipal fees and tariffs charged for townhouse projects can differ wildly depending on which region within Metro Vancouver you happen to be in.
