Neighbourhood Growing Pains

Whether you or I agree with, like it or not, the old has to make way for the new. This can be a heartbreak but that’s the reality. Imagine a city where nothing ever replaced the old. Who would want to live there?

Dunbar commercial property by Tom Ikonomou

New developments make for a more sustainable neighbourhood and the amount of steps and processes a developer has to go through could make anyone go bonkers.

Vancouver real estate by Tom Ikonomou

There is no shortage of people apposing development but in reality.. if it wasn’t for redevelopment, those same individuals would not be living where they currently live. That block of 10 or so homes used to be part of a larger parcel of land where at the time before redevelopment.. was only one home. Thankfully for redevelopment, more people can enjoy the lifestyle of their neighbourhoods of choice.

Dunbar Professional Tom Ikonomou

In another few decades, so too this building (which is modern at the time), will go towards redevelopment.

Dunbar commercial business development by Tom Ikonomou

This block of businesses on Dunbar Street in Vancouver may have a few more years of community life right now, but unfortunately (or should I say fortunately) they too will transition into a better living community for all to enjoy.

Pitfalls of living in Vancouver

Living in Vancouver comes with it’s share of surprises. You’ve just visited a nice store or coffee shop in a beautiful neighbourhood then walk up to where you thought you’ve parked your car and can’t see it. The first reaction you will get is “oh, I’ve must of parked somewhere else or I’ve must of walked past my car” Who is a great realtor in vancouverso., after a few walks up and down the block

you remember the spot where you’ve parked.  Next thing that runs through your mind is even worse.. you think “someone’s stole my car” oh crap.. why did I leave my laptop in the truck? Now what am I going to do with the mirage of other things I’ve left in the trunk.

So you make the dreaded call to the police to report your car stolen. The police ask you to contact the City of Vancouver and give you their number. So here you are in the middle of the sidewalk waiting for your call to go through. Luckily, you get a live person who tells you to contact Busters. Busters? who’s Busters? Busters is the towing company contracted to pick up cars for the City of Vancouver. Busters.. you think in disbelief for a moment then you call them. Sure enough they ask for your plate number and confirm your car is at their compound.

At this time you have mixed emotions. The same mixed emotions you’d have if you watched your mother in-law drive over a cliff in your brand new Porsche. So you say out loud… Busters?!?!  … B@#%RS!!! Immediately you find a way (with lightning speed) to get to the impound, pay the towing fee and then pay the parking ticket that was issued mere seconds before your car was towed. What?!?! Another fee?!?! Talk about putting salt on the wound. Oh well, at least I still have my laptop and all the other important stuff (you think to yourself and then skip that dinner for two at the Keg).

Vancouver has a lot of signs.. and I mean a lot. Some of them can be quite confusing if you don’t look twice. One particular parking by-law you can miss is where you’re parked on the side of a road where there is no post indicating how far from the curb you can park.

IMG_4781

You must be at least six meters from where the grass on the sidewalk meets. There are a number of these types of intersections and you don’t want to discover them the hard way. Below is what I call the tow away hot zones. Notice how the distance from this post is a lot closer to the intersection than six meters? Keep an eye out for these and always remember, the sign does not have to be there to indicate a tow away zone.

Living in Vancouver is very rewarding and over time, you get to know where to park.. or where not to park.

Go West young man, Go West

Vancouver has two main areas. Vancouver East & Vancouver West. In December 2018 the average detached home in Vancouver West sold for $3,306,055 whereas the Average home in Vancouver East sold for $1,480,383 That’s $1,825,672 more for a home on the Westside! However, we are not comparing apples with apples. The other factor you must account for is the size of the lot the home is on.

As of December 2018 there were 494 detached homes listed with an average size lot of 4,270 sq foot, and of the homes that sold, it worked out to $346.63 per sq foot. Of the 549 homes listed on the Westside, the average sized lot was 7,808 sq feet and of the homes that sold, worked out to $423.39 sq foot.

This means for $76.76 per sq foot more.. you would get (on average) a lot that is 3,538 sq feet more. A larger lot generally means a larger home as well.

If you’ve always wanted to live on the Westside, now may be the single best time to do that. For a complimentary, no obligation market evaluation on your home.. give me a shout at 778.879.8366 or send me an email with your name and address to tom@tomikonomou.com
