Someone is selling a parking spot in Yaletown for $50,000

It’s no secret that Vancouver is a pricey place to call home, and even if you do find a place to settle in, there still remains the question of parking. Is a spot provided? Is it on-street? Is there even any space available?

These sorts of issues are even more pressing in high-density neighbourhoods such as the always-popular Yaletown, where a mix of business and residential developments mean finding a place to park your vehicle isn’t always the easiest task in the world.

However, it seems that these sorts of concerns could all be alleviated – according to at least one real estate listing.

Yes, we said real estate.

According to the listing, this spot – 77-1200 Pacific Boulevard – is no ordinary spot, but rather, a “prime downtown parking spot,” and a “very rare opportunity to own a freehold strata parking spot in the heart of Yaletown.”

Sweetening the deal? The strata where this spot – built in 1994 – is located does not require the owner to live in the building. This, the listing explains, means “you can rent it to anyone, or use it yourself.”

It’s also got all the features you’d expect from a “prime” parking spot, including painted yellow lines, and a number.

“Okay cool,” you might be thinking. “But how much does this cost?”

Don’t worry, that information is included too: $50,000.

And sure, that might seem steep for a parking spot, but hey, as the listing notes, you’ll “never worry about parking downtown again!”

And that has to be worth something, right?
