When it comes to finding the best home deals, insider information is always a bonus. With the Vancouver housing market being notoriously expensive going from affordable to outrageous, we are all in desperate need of some good news and good deals.
That’s where these homes come in. They are listed well below government assessed value, are under $1 million, and fresh on the market. It’s the cream of the crop of home deals.
How it works is the BC government analyzes and gives a price based on each property’s factors like size, layout, shape, age, neighbourhood, the condition of the property and more. When listing prices appear lower than as compared to government value, these incredible value-for-money homes set off alarm bells, demanding to be seen and bought.
