oh, the horror
CUTE & SOLID LITTLE STARTER. New roof, only 6 years old! New gutters, new electr ical. H/W flrs, W/B F/P, walk to everything! Perfect for renovations or builders ! 2264 FERNDALE ST, Hastings, Vancouver East MLS# V615112 $479,000.00
Assessed 2007 at $437,400
How can they? Cute and solid? Perfect for renovators? Maybe with a can of gas and a good insurance policy. I can't even see it being perfect for builders. It has weird lot dimensions (49x66) - what could you build on that?
Walk to everything? You would need to - you couldn't afford to own and operate a vehicle, or buy a bus pass after making the payments on this POS.
This place has been sitting there for sale since the peak of summer with no price reductions whatsoever. Is it an absentee land-lord with an absent-minded realtor? $41,600 over assessed value?
This place is just east of Boundary Rd. (Burnaby), and you truly can walk to just about everything (Metrotown, etc.), plus, it is right across the road from Central Park - which would make for a nice walk. The lot is more than twice the size, the house is much nicer looking, and the square footage is about the same, so don't tell me that the Ferndale house price is worth it because of lot value. You would get double the lot for an extra 60K.

Is Vancouver worth that much more? Am I out to lunch? Or is it them?
I can't take it any more.
