I thought this was a very interesting article in the Financial Post. In it, they compare what $500,000 buys you across this great country of ours. If the Vancouver prices scare you, try Squamish! Forty minutes north of Vancouver and 40 minutes south of Whistler, $500,000 will get you an upscale townhouse of 1900 square feet or a detached rancher of 1425 square feet, fully updated on a 7500 square foot lot. Curious? Give me a call at 1-604-815-8137.
