Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

Selling Laneway Homes as separate fee simple lots creates a whole new type of problem. Without the option of adequate parking in the back for all residents of the property you will find streets clogged. Huge problems also with those who put in a Laneway, plus a secondary suite in the Master Home ov...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

Absorption (for me ) Length of Time for Specific Product to Liquidate at Projected Price. The length of time it takes you to get to market, the less accurate your Absorption data becomes and the more you are dependent on Market demand. Control from this point becomes a function of price. Buuut The m...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

I wasn't trying to bring demand to your argument. I think it's obvious and you didn't even need bring it up for that reason. You can have supply, location, absorption, and character (in that order), but it is all meaningless without demand. Any real estate developer who has experienced a down cycle...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

If there is a demand for higher density housing, the jurisdiction will permit it, and it is economically viable, development will happen. I believe that was Rofina's point. No She said: Developers are only interested in the highest density option, obviously thats where the most money is made. That ...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

EDIT: To add, I agree about your developer comment. Developers are only interested in the highest density option , obviously thats where the most money is made. That in itself is part of the problem Change the zoning and you allow boutique builders to come up with creative housing options, micro de...

Re: Sell old or build new & then sell

Get a professional GC. Going new will be a better way to go. The GC will likely have some buying power on materials and quality subs that will mitigate some of your costs. The bonus is that you will have someone who has experience with the subs and has potentially weeded out some lackluster ones. En...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

Actually its about the fear mongering that went on during the Cold War. I dont celebrate killing babies, but they were alluding to what would happen if there is a launch.
