Dominion by Ledingham McAllister in Downtown New Westminster

A New Place To Call Home

 

A CITY REVITALIZED

New Westminster is well known for its rich character and history, just like Ledingham McAllister, with our 107 year history of building quality communities throughout British Columbia. As a result, we are incredibly proud to introduce Dominion, a community of Craftsman-style residences to British Columbia’s original capital city. If you are familiar with New Westminster, you have probably noticed that Dominion is already under construction on Royal Avenue across from City Hall. Our spectacular sales centre is also well under construction at the corner of 6th Avenue and Agnes… you won’t be able to miss the tricked-out Austin Mini that will soon be parked on its roof! We love this quickly-evolving, centrally-located and historic city. Want to know why? Here’s our top five reasons.

  1. Dominion will bring you the best of New Westminster’s heritage-style architecture in a brand new building built by BC’s original home builder. Solid design backed by a solid builder. All at affordable and realistic prices.
     
  2. New Westminster is the most centrally located city in the entire Lower Mainland with fantastic Sky Train access: Work downtown? It’s a 30 minute commute by Sky Train. Need a Metrotown shopping fix? It’s only three stops away. Does your family live across the river? No problem. You’re there in mere minutes.
     
  3. Dominion is in a highly walkable location. A quick stroll brings you to the eclectic mix of cafes and shops that comprises the character-laden charm of Columbia Street. From antiques, to formal wear and BC’s original discount department store – Army and Navy—it’s all here.
     
  4. Students and Professors will appreciate the three block walk to Douglas College or the 15 minute drive to SFU.
     
  5. A huge variety of convenient shopping options have recently arrived in the form of Plaza 88, the newly restored River Market, and Big Bend Crossing – a big box shopping district on Marine Way.

We at Ledingham McAllister took a fresh look at New Westminster, and we encourage you to do the same. In the meanwhile, if you are curious to learn more about the homes at Dominion… stay tuned for further email updates! Floorplans, pricing and all the details will be coming your way as soon as they are available.

Home listings rise to start the spring season

VANCOUVER, B.C. – April 6, 2010 – A steady influx of new listings has helped create a balanced ‘typical spring’ housing market in the Greater Vancouver region.

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that new listings for detached, attached and apartment properties in Greater Vancouver totalled 7,004 in March 2010. This represents a 60 per cent increase compared to March 2009 when 4,385 new units were listed, and a 52.1 per cent increase compared to February 2010 when 4,606 properties were listed on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®).

At 13,538, the total number of property listings on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS®) increased 19 percent in March compared to last month, but remains 7.6 per cent below this time last year.

“The total number of homes listed for sale on our MLS® is at its highest level in 10 months, which translates into more options and variety for those looking to buy during the traditionally busy spring period,” Jake Moldowan,

REBGV president said.

Residential property sales in Greater Vancouver reached 3,137 in March 2010, a 38.5 per cent increase compared to March 2009, a 4.7 per cent increase over March 2008, and a 12.4 per cent decrease compared to March 2007. The current figure also represents a 26.8 per cent increase compared to the 2,473 sales recorded in February 2010.

“With a sales-to-listing ratio of 23 per cent, we see a healthy balance between buyer demand and seller supply in the marketplace,” Moldowan said.

Over the last 12 months, the MLSLink® Housing Price Index (HPI) benchmark price for all residential properties in Greater Vancouver increased 20.3 per cent to $584,435 from $485,845 in March 2009. This price is 2.8 per cent above the previous high point in the market in May 2008 when the residential benchmark price sat at $568,411.

Sales of detached properties in March 2010 reached 1,336, an increase of 49 per cent from the 897 detached sales recorded in March 2009 and a 19.7 per cent increase from the 1,116 units sold in March 2008. The benchmark price for detached properties increased 23.3 per cent from March 2009 to $800,341, but declined 0.6 per cent compared to last month when the benchmark price was $800,796.

Sales of apartment properties in March 2010 reached 1,252, an increase of 28.3 per cent compared to the 976 sales in March 2009 and a decline of 8.6 per cent compared to the 1,370 sales in March 2008.The benchmark price of an apartment property increased 17.3 per cent from March 2009 to $395,507 and is up 1.2 per cent compared to last month when the benchmark price was $390,899.
