The best regions to live in Canada

If you’re looking to move to Canada but unsure where’s best to live, this handy guide to the best regions to live in will help you.

Six single-family lots on West 41st to become 88 new homes

The development, known as The Bromley, will consist of two, four-storey wood frame buildings on West 41st Avenue and two townhouse blocks on the laneway, with a landscaped courtyard in between them.

Every once a while, one spots a listing that epitomizes Vancouver’s sky high, outrageously expensive real estate market.

2573 West 3rd Avenue in Kitsilano is one such listing. The 1912-built former rooming house was damaged in a fire late last year.

Now the partially demolished structure, and more importantly, the lot it sits on are for sale for $3.99 million.

The property was most recently sold (intact, before the fire) for $3 million in November 2016.

Clearly, the listing agent Hunt Tse now thinks it’s worth more.

The listing price of $3,990,000 is also above the most recent BC Assessment value of $3,713,000 — calculated before the blaze.

The home sits on a 50′ x 120′ lot, and can accommodate more than one dwelling.

With a 20 per cent downpayment of $800,000, mortgage payments would be approximately $19,000 per month at 5.34 per cent/five year fixed term.
