A couple of days ago, a Vancouver mansion hit the market for $35 million, which was $9.4 million over its most recent property value assessment.
This comes a few weeks after a Kitsilano home sold for $735,000 over its $3.5 million asking price. The selling price of $4.23 million was about $1.6 million above the lot’s assessed property value.
The rising costs of the Vancouver real estate market is leaving many would-be real estate buyers to consider purchasing elsewhere and Kelowna, BC is one of their sought after choices.
After all, Kelowna is a four-season playground for those in Vancouver looking to escape the city and enjoy the laid back Okanagan lifestyle. A scenic lake offering a plethora of water activities, a world-class ski resort, award-winning golf courses, wineries and recreational activities make Kelowna more than an ideal place to visit, it’s the perfect place to call home. As an added bonus for those moving in from Vancouver, the value of the real estate market in comparison with Vancouver means a home buyer can get more home, more views, more property for their money.
