Duds and Deals

Here is where I take a look at the offerings in Urban Vancouver and issue a proclamation! Is it a ‘deal’ or a ‘dud.’ It is important to make this very real disclosure, I have not necessarily been inside all of these units and my opinions are just that, “opinions.” These units are listed on the multiple listing service and should be toured to make any serious evaluation. I do however have a fair amount of insight into these urban properties and their competition. I have sold and toured scores of units over the years and quite recently as well.

Any unit I call a “dud” should still be toured with a licensed pro, and if you do tour it and think I am off base on my “opinion” please send an email to dudsndeals@rodsager.com and tell me why I’m wrong 🙂

That said lets look at some of the units currently listed in the MLS and for the record I will not rate any units listed by me personally, those would all be ‘deals’ right 😉

  • Parkview: 1 bed, 1 bath, 439 SF, MLS#20511473 $185,000 DEAL. This is a nice unit facing the interior of the complex which has drawbacks regarding light but at this price with all of Downtown at your doorstep, that’s tough to beat. This was solid deal and it is now sold.
  • Parkview: 2 bed, 2 bath, 837 SF, MLS#20160603 $314,900 DEAL. This little unit is on the sixth floor and faces the park. It is a deal because of the fact it has that forever view over the park and at this price it is hard to beat. This one went fast. 
  • Frontier Block: 2 beds, 2 baths, 1583 SF, north and west view MLS#20490752  $625,000 DEAL. This unit has a lot of glass that wraps around the corner of the building for an amazing 270° panoramic view. At this price, Frontier Block at 500 Broadway for a unit this nice is too good pass up. Despite my calling this unit a deal, took a fair bit of time to move but it is sold now at $575,000
