The new brave
This post One Madison Avenue over at Vancouver Condo Info left me a bit unsettled, but elicited a resigned chuckle too.
It is being marketed by Bob Rennie, and is in Burnaby. But wait a minute - isn't Burnaby a suburb? Didn't Bob say "be brave or move to the suburbs"? I guess that is so yesterday. Today the new line is "be brave - move to the suburbs". Down the memory hole.
The blurb claims that this development is "only one minute from Vancouver", and I guess that's true. If traffic is good you can hit Boundary Road in one minute, and from there, only 20 minutes to get downtown.
The listing is 647 sq.ft., and is sitting on a spacious 294901.20 sq.ft. lot. I wonder if it is possible to build a coach house as a mortgage helper. Of course this spacious condo gives you the option to have a mortgage helper right in the unit itself. Shared laundry, bathroom, and bed itself are selling features that make me want to be bold.
Originally listed for $207,900 in May 2004, now listed at $325,900, this splendid property in a prestigous location has a history of being a money-maker. Be brave now, or move to Spuzzum!
