East Vancouver Homes for Sale

If you are searching for Vancouver homes for sale you have chosen an extremely beautiful city located on the west coast of Canada in British Columbia.

There are beautiful neighbourhoods located all throughout the city. Coal harbour used to be the main Port District in the Vancouver area. However, now it has been redesigned and rebuilt to become a neighbourhood of luxury apartments and some commercial properties. This residential neighbourhood is one of the most stunning postcard picturesque views that Vancouver has to offer.

vancouver real estate

There are other neighbourhoods in the downtown core, including downtown Vancouver, Yaletown, Gastown, and other areas centralized close to many conveniences such as Urban Fare, Choices, T&T supermarket, International Village Mall, Pacific Center Mall, and many others. The Downtown Eastside is known as a low earning income area in a few homeless individuals that have required living in assisted conditions. The city is truly diverse. You have luxury condos on one side and homelessness issues on the other.

The West End is a beautiful residential design strict with many apartments and condos and mixed commercial units. The West End is also home to Vancouver’s Pride Parade and gay community near the Davie village. To the southeast side part of town, you will find one of the oldest neighbourhoods along the banks of the False creek next to the seawall, called Yaletown. This used to be a neighbourhood hood full of warehouses and commercial real estate districts. However, the community was completely reinvigorated with a mix of luxury condos and apartments in the late 1990s.

Vancouver BC Canada also includes beautiful neighbourhoods, such as West Point, grey, Sunset, Fraser view, Killarney, Kitsilano, Mount Pleasant, Granville Island, Kerrisdale, and East Vancouver.

Climate

Vancouver has a beautiful climate in one of the primary in principle attractions. Each year, more and more tourists flock to this city, making it one of the most visited cities in North America. It has a beautiful and warm climate that resembles the Mediterranean type warm summers. Sometimes a typical summer is so dry between August and July that Vancouver sometimes experiences droughts.

Vancouver, however, is known to host a significant amount of rainfall between the months of September to April. This is called the rainy city for a reason. Because it is located near the Rocky Mountains, most of the British Columbia’s fall and winter remains under a cloud. Snow amounts here are very small during the winter and typically on average Vancouver gets snow between two and four weeks out of the entire year, making it a very comfortable condition.

This city is located between the Pacific Ocean and the beautiful Rocky Mountains. It is one of the largest cities in Canada and located in the province of British Columbia. Vancouver has more population than 600,000 residents and almost 2.8 million people that call the Metro Vancouver and the Greater Vancouver area their home.

Metro Vancouver has a very strong high urban density in British Columbia, with over 5000 people per square kilometer. Vancouver is certainly about the third or fourth mostly populated area in North America. Other cities that also exhibit the same qualities are Mexico City, San Francisco and New York. Vancouver can be seen as a beta global city, which is a city that links moderate economic areas into an economy that is interconnected worldwide.

This is why the ports in Vancouver are one of the busiest sites in the world. Oftentimes in the community of Coal Harbour you will see people strolling by in Stanley Park or going for bike rides on a Sunday. Stanley Park is a protected wooded area of over 1200 acres and is a chance for everybody to escape into the greenery, which is right inside the city of Vancouver.

One of the reasons why many people come to this location is because it is one of the warmest cities during the winter and the moderate temperature city in the summertime. BC’s booming economy is one of the strongest in Canada and in North America, making it a huge destination for workers around the world and coming here to experience the Canadian Real Estate Market.

Worldwide you will see headlines in newspapers where the Vancouver real estate market continues to make headlines. It has been over two or three decades where property prices have risen and made housing affordability issues throughout the city.

However, despite the current housing downturn, The Vancouver housing market is still quite strong. Vancouver is known for having a housing market that is very stable.

Most buyers initially don’t know that you should not take your time when searching for a home. On average, most houses only stay in the market for around one or three weeks. Meaning that houses for sale in Vancouver are usually taken quite aggressively – sometimes with bully offers.

Which means that most homebuyers have to be ready with mortgage financing and come up with strong offers. Even though the median condo prices are still below the $900,000, condos in Vancouver and the Metro Vancouver area sell reasonably quickly.

In these areas, investors find houses that make two separate contained units known as Vancouver specials with basement suites, and townhouses. The suites often have 1 or 2 bedrooms so that they can be rented out. Known as mortgage helpers, this is certainly a real estate hack that is usefully in such an unaffordable city.
