Interest Intensifies in Greater Vancouver’s Hot Housing Market

Posted by on May 23, 2015 in Video & Blog

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. And those currently owners of single-family detached properties, will be interested to know that every property hunters’ eyebrows rise and mouth goes into a circular shape the moment they see such a home in a property listing. 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. On the east side of Vancouver, investors can expect to be looking at paying around $800,000 for detached property on an average-sized plot. But there is much competition and to say it’s a...

The Estates at Morgan Heights At South Surrey

Posted by on Jan 9, 2015 in Video & Blog

The Estates at Morgan Heights are already busy in the South Surrey district and the excitement levels are beginning to build faster than the luxury homes that are about to take shape here. As you might see from its showroom at South Surrey, there is an exclusive collection of some 38 estate homes on plots of land starting from 4,000 sq. ft. So where is this all happening exactly?

Housing Development Approval Costs Vary Wildly Across Vancouver

Posted by on Dec 10, 2014 in Video & Blog

Municipal fees and tariffs charged for townhouse projects can differ wildly depending on which region within Metro Vancouver you happen to be in. Take for example the municipal fees for a unit in White Rock, here one would expect to pay just $8,390 per home as those living in Port Moody have to fork out over four times as much, paying a whopping $33,713 per unit. These key findings have just been published in a report and there are not only wild differences in the municipal fees and charges, but in the time it takes for approval from the municipal council to rubber stamp plans for townhouses. Residents and townhouse owners in White Rock can expect to have their plans approved within nine months from the first date of application to the project being sealed and stamped. However, Maple...

Posted by on Nov 7, 2014 in Video & Blog

The people of White Rock recently got a much clearer picture of the future of the rail line that is located so close to the waterline. The city is bidding to relocate the railway line and experts are all agreeing that the rail operator running the line, Burlington Northern Santa Fe, must not in any way lose money over the relocation. However, it has demanded it doesn’t make any money over the relocation either. Every municipality affected by such a relocation must give its consent to the move and no one body must end up out of pocket as a result of the move. White Rock will certainly have its work cut out if it is to move the line and get everybody on board and meeting with approval. Approval must also be gained from the municipality of Surrey...
