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 a tough to beat.
  • Parkview: 1 bed, 1 bath, 584 SF, MLS#19590880 $219,900 DEAL. This little unit is on the second 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. SOLD told ya so 😉
  • Frontier Block: 2 beds, 2 baths, 2186 SF, south view, river, MLS#19319982  $629,900 DEAL. This unit has been listed for a quite a while but it started out up in the $800k price range. That is a tough nugget with near Tidewater pricing and the competition from the “top of the world” Viewpoint units. But now the price is under $650k. At that price, Frontier Block at 500 Broadway for a unit this nice is too good pass up. SOLD
  • Parkview: 2 beds, 2 baths, 835 SF, faces park, MLS#19101364 $342,500 DEAL 6th floor unit overlooks park, balcony patio on units above the 3rd floor are smaller, but view is better on floors above the 4th. SOLD told ya so 😉
