If you are closely watching one market area, it might be hard to imagine what you could purchase for the same amount of area only if you cross the bridge, take a different exit on the highway, or move a bit further away from the Downtown. I often receive questions from clients about what they could buy for the same value in different parts of Greater Vancouver.
In this post, we explore that – what beautiful listings you could purchase in different parts of our Greater Vancouver for the same price tag. So let’s see how active listings fare one compared to another across Greater Vancouver.
1,328 SqFt Penthouse with Stunning Views in Coquitlam
I am starting with my listing in Coquitlam, just because I absolutely love this listing, and I think is a great value. A fantastic 1328-SqFt penthouse with 505 SqFt of outdoor patio space. For $899,000, you can have a separate room for your kids, work from home in your gorgeous office, and enjoy summer evenings around a fire pit and with beautiful sunsets. Really, this unit sums up everything that’s great about living in BC.

In North Vancouver, for the same price ($899,000), you can purchase a 1,200 SqFt renovated townhouse in Cedar Crescent, a townhouse complex built in 1971.
