This one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit is spaciously spread out across 1,000 square feet. Why does this seem like such a good deal for Vancouver?

According to the listing, you’d be sharing the living room, kitchen, and laundry, with a single professional owner. So, you’d have access to the private bedroom and bathroom only.

We knew it was too good to be true! Always read the fine print in a listing.
