I have sold a property at 20 3437 4TH AVE W in Vancouver.
This is the one: a two level penthouse townhome with a huge, private roof top patio! Enjoy abundant natural light and privacy, because the main floor of this corner home is surrounded by windows on three sides. Located across the street from McBride Park and a 10 minute walk to Jericho Beach, this is a convenient location in the heart of Kitsilano. Walk everywhere. You are surrounded by coffee shops, grocery stores and restaurants on 4th Avenue and Broadway. Did I mention the 500 square foot roof top patio with city and mountain views? Just painted with newer flooring and recent bathroom renovations, this home is move-in ready. As a bonus, this is one of the only homes in the development with 2 secure underground parking stalls.

  • First questions my clients ask is should I buy first or sell first when moving

  • The answer is not straightforward

  • Whether buy first or sell first - still will be stressful

  • If buy first, have the stress of selling before taking possession of the home that you purchased.

  • Also the uncertainty of selling for enough money to afford the new home

  • If you sell first, you are under the gun to buy a home and moving before you have to give up your home you just sold.

  • When is it advantageous to sell first.  

  • When you are moving from an area with a stronger market to a weaker market.  Stronger negotiating position.

  • When advantageous to buy first. When you are moving into a strong market with less choice and you want to make sure that you can find the right home.

I have listed a new property at 10310 149A ST in Surrey.
Great opportunity to purchase a large building lot in the heart of Guildford. Build a mansion in this desirable location within a 5 minute walk of the Guildford Town Centre. Here you will find over 200 stores with a shopping experience like no other. The planned Light Rail Transit (LRT) is scheduled to begin construction in 2019. The LRT will connect you to Surrey Central and then to the Expo Line and Downtown Vancouver. The neighboring home is a great example of the potential for this property. With a little work this 5 bedroom home will make a great revenue property or family home. Don't miss this one.
