East Vancouver Real Estate Presale
For many years, the East Side of Vancouver real estate was considered to be a very run down and old community where you could purchase old homes at a very affordable and reasonable cost. However, things have changed over the past decade and a prospective home buyer in Vancouver East property may not even get a fixer upper for less than $750,000.

The shortage of land in Vancouver has a big part to do with it. In addition, Vancouver East is so close to downtown and to UBC, homebuyers have flocked here to build their dream homes on more reasonably priced land when compared to the above counterparts. Residential real estate developers have also come to Vancouver east or the East Side of Vancouver to build their townhomes, condo pre-construction projects and presales master planned home communities because the land is cheaper and there is a bigger demographic that can afford these new homes.

This is why the East Side of Vancouver new real estate projects are demanding the prices that are more than other traditionally more enticing areas such as Burnaby and Richmond.

When visitors or people moving into the city look at a map, many are stunned and somewhat confused by the district location names for neighbourhoods.

There is also the East End of Downtown Vancouver, which is not the same as the East Side of Vancouver real estate property. Basically, the line drawn for the community of East Vancouver is between the Vancouver Westside and Burnaby (just beyond Canada Way). The most popular new development areas on the easide of Vancouver real estate include the Commercial Drive neighbourhood where homebuyers can find new apartment buildings, condos, luxury residences and family townhomes all within a block of this vibrant and multi-cultural artsy district. Mount Pleasant has become a great place for first time homebuyers to by starter homes which are usually older and more run down and therefore require some tender loving care.

Finance Minister Carole Taylor is joined by Rozanne Kipnes, co-chair of Tikva Housing society, and Luis Guincher at the opening of the Dany Guincher House in Marpole East Vancouver yesterday. Subsidized housing homes open in Marpole – By Kristen T. for Metro Vancouver. Eleven families and individuals who are at risk to being homeless, are living in shelters or are disabled but independent, will have a place to live after the opening of a subsidized apartment complex in Marpole community of East Vancouver and is called the Dany Guincher House. The Dany Guincher House officially opened yesterday at a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by Finance Minister and East Vancouver-Langara MLA. Rozanne, co-chair of Tikva Housing Society, said integrating support services with housing helps people move toward more secure housing, greater self-reliance and better employment. Celeste , a resident of the Dany Guincher House since January, said she found herself living in shelters after her roommate suddenly moved on and everything she place in storage was stolen. “I was left with nothing, and no place to live,” Munro said. “Life became very barren and bleak.” She said finding a spot in the Dany Guincher House in Marpole community of East Vancouver real estate was a dream come true. “The stress of homelessness is not the way I’d ever thought my life could go. It can happen to anyone with low income. On a side note, Renovations of thre three storey building were funded by the Provincial Homelessness Initiative and the Tikva Housing Society. Thank you!
