Shawn’s Deals of the Week (February 11 – 15)

Shawn’s Deals of the Week  (Feb 11 – 15)

Every week I will be posting 3-5 listings that I think are great investments for those who are looking to buy and hold, build, and move in. The neighbourhoods that I explore are:

  1. Vancouver West
  2. Vancouver East
  3. East burnaby
  4. South Burnaby
  5. North Burnaby
  6. New Westminster
  7. Surrey

Why are you doing this?

There are so many aspects to take in to account when finding the right investment property.  You want to look at location, price point, location of that exact property, the details of the home and any issues with the lot. Whether it’s sloped, at a high point on the block that allows for a view or whether it’s riddled with trees that make it near impossible to build on without going through a lengthy process with the city halls. I will try to narrow searches down for you to make the selection process easier.

House size:  1,995 Sq Ft.
Bedrooms: 4
Bathroom: 3
Year Built: 1989
Zoning: RS4 – link to city website for RS4 zoning

 

 

 

Why I Chose it:

Situated in one of the best neighbourhoods in New Westminster, Queen’s Park. This home is on a fairly private street and has a big lot. As it stands, the RS4 zoning is quite stringent on the building guidelines. However, one may be able to achieve a .7 FSR. This could allow for a home up to 4,830 Sq. Ft. For clarification on these guidelines please contact us directly and we will do our best to guide you or contact the planning department at the City of New Westminster.

House size:  3,425 Sq Ft.
Bedrooms: 4

Why I Chose it:

Government Road is one of the high end areas in North Burnaby. Right beside Highway 1 with Access to Downtown, Brentwood, SFU within minutes. This is a central location and hey, you’ll be close to Michael Bublé. Joking aside. The R1 zoning allows for a buildable up to .6 FSR or 6,350.9 Sq. Ft. Whichever is lesser. In this case that would be a home with a total of 6,132 Sq. Ft. Please contact the planning department at the City of Burnaby for verification.

Price: $ 1,999,000

House size:  2,182 Sq Ft.
Bedrooms: 5
Bathroom: 2
Year Built: 1944
Zoning: RS-7

 

 

 

Why I Chose it:

Close to Shaughnessy, downtown, the beach and all things Vancouver. This is a great building lot for an owner builder or someone looking for a holding property. Buy now, hold, build later. The City of Vancouver has become very strict with their building guidelines therefore it is best to read through the zoning bylaws before planning your dream home on this lot. As of right now, the standard FSR for RS-7 lots in Vancouver are .6 but can be allowable up to .7 FSR based on the design guidelines of the proposed dwelling.

  3. East burnaby
  4. South Burnaby

  6. New Westminster
  7. Surrey

Why are you doing this?

There are so many aspects to take in to account when finding the right investment property.  You want to look at location, price point, location of that exact property, the details of the home and any issues with the lot. Whether it’s sloped, at a high point on the block that allows for a view or whether it’s riddled with trees that make it near impossible to build on without going through a lengthy process with the city halls.

Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 2
Year Built: 1912
Zoning: RS-1

 

 

 

 

Why I Chose it:

 The price point is fantastic for a single family home in New Westminster. In many cases, this home is the same price as 2 bedroom condos in Burnaby, Vancouver and some parts of New Westminster. This home has been renovated inside and is move in ready. Like many homes in this age range, there will be some needed TLC. In addition, there are no big trees except for the large one in the front yard that has been pruned.

Why I Chose it:

Located 3 doors in from 1st Ave 1715 Cotton Drive is in an area for multi-family development. This property is best for buying and holding until a land assembly happens.  As it stands, it is a part of the Granvdiew-Woodland Community Plan in an area zoned for up to 6 stories. This home would need to be assembled with the neighbouring 5 homes. Please contact us for more information regarding this investment.

Why I Chose it:

This property is located in then heart of Point Grey. One of the only inside street listings under $2,500,000. This home has some trees on the lot that would need some arborists reports for a future build. Regardless, this is a sharply priced home!

Shawn’s Best Deals of the Week  (Dec 10-14)

Every week I will be posting 3-5 listings that I think are great investments for those who are looking to buy and hold, build, and move in. The neighbourhoods that I will be exploring are:

  1. Vancouver West
  2. Vancouver East
  3. East burnaby
  4. South Burnaby
  5. North Burnaby
  6. New Westminster
  7. Surrey

Why are you doing this?

There are so many aspects to take in to account when finding the right investment property.  You want to look at location, price point, location of that exact property, the details of the home and any issues with the lot. Whether it’s sloped, at a high point on the block that allows for a view or whether it’s riddled with trees that make it near impossible to build on without going through a lengthy process with the city halls. I will try to narrow searches down for you to make the selection process easier.

Vancouver West: 4454 W 13th Avenue

Price: $ 2,398,000
Lot: 33 x 122 (4,026 Sq Ft.)
House size:  2,356 Sq Ft.
Bedrooms: 5
Year Built: 1930
Zoning: RS-1

 

 

 

 

 

Why I Chose it:

The location is key. The price point is also great for Point Grey and the homes shows rentability. This is great while waiting for the development permits. This home is in modest shape and there appears to be little to no large trees on the lot. Although the 1930’s age may require a large portion of the home to be recycled, roughly 75%+. The RS-1 zones have recently been allowed duplexes, but given the neighbourhood elevations, a single family home with a lane way home would be best suited for the neighbourhood. In addition, the RS-1 zone allows for up to 70% FSR buildable. Please refer to the building guidelines as every house design may not qualify for the density bonus from the 60% shown on the zoning plan. The finished buildable maxed out at 70% is over 2,800 Sq Ft.

Vancouver East: 82 Ontario Place 

Price: $ 1,788,000
Lot: 33 x 121.93 (4,023.69 Sq Ft.)

Why I Chose it:

Why I chose it: The location is key. It is nestled between Main and Cambie which are direct routes to downtown Vancouver. It is a few blocks over from one of the largest developments in Vancouver, Oakridge. The price may be a bit high but the location is great!

Why I Chose it:

The location is key. This property sits a block away from the South Gate development, which is lead by Ledingham McAllister which will be 60 acres large and home to a new community. This home may be rezoned to higher density possibly two family infill housing. This will need to be verified with the city. The location is also a few blocks over from the Edmonds Skytrain station that is easy access to Vancouver and other parts of Metro Vancouver.

Why I Chose it:

The location is key. This property Is two blocks away from the 22nd Street Skytrain Station and is in the New Westminster Official Community Plan for higher density. Higher density can be either infill (townhome) housing or low rise multi-family. The city would need to be consulted for verification. The home has also been tastefully renovated

Why I Chose it:

Why I chose it: The location is key. It is in the heart of New Westminster. Easy walking distance to New Westminster Secondary, Moody Park and some restaurants. It is also off of 8th Street which gives access to the #1 highway. It is also on the North side of Dublin which is then high side of the suite and with the additional square footage allowable in the basement for NR1 makes this is a great purchase for a building property. Be wary that there is one large tree in the back. Although the city has tree bylaws, there may be a chance to replace the current tree.
