Generally, what's the protocol if you buy in an adult only TH complex and later, become pregnant? Do you have X amount of time to sell?

What do your bylaws say?

If the bylaws are silent, such situations are probably handled on a case-by-case basis. The strata's property manager should be contacted first.

Concord Brentwood sold out before opening to public. But that doesn't say much, all you have to do is register on their site and u can get a chance to buy :P

Decided to cancel my order for my unit. Value/size/money = not worth it after a lengthy consideration

I was able to get in during VIP first day of presales. Word on the street is the following days had an increase of $30,000-$40,000 added on top from the previous. Tower 2 will be more expensive than tower 1 so I cannot imagine how prices will be there. They are already preparing for tower 2, so you should probably get your suite request in or ask your realtor/whomever on how to sign up for it. I heard people who couldn't get in on tower 1 were contacted/notified that they can be apart of tower 2 without re-registering.

If you want to get it as an investment, there a ton of other properties that are going to be nearby. You don't need luxury for investment/renting purposes.

If you want to live in it, you need to have a plan especially for your future. Completion is year 2020 and they will most likely be building both towers at the same time. This might delay the completion date so you have to plan for a 4-5 year completion. On top of that, not gonna lie, the units are really small so be prepared.

This has got to be one of the most vague questions ever asked.

Can you afford living there and living a happy life? If the answer is yes, then it is worth it.

Why would you buy a unit that you can't see for another 3 years, when you can buy a larger unit in the same neighbourhood today for the same price? There are lots of buildings in Brentwood - Tandem, Perspectives, OMA 1/2, Solo, Watercolours, and a bunch of woodframe units at Brentwood Gate.

Condo's as an investment suck, they wont appreciate anything like a detached home. The only exception to this is Downtown Vancouver.

Think about it, if the demand continues for condos around brentwood enough that the values start to rise, developers will just build more towers across the street. There is the land available to do this. Therefore price increases will be marginal for TH and condos.

Whereas compare that to the houses in behind brentwood who will see big spikes in price as the areas around them are slowly densified.

Bottom line: If you just want a condo to live in, by all means buy in brentwood. Otherwise buy a house, or save up a little more to buy a house, your ROI will be way bigger in 10 years.

It's really hard to know what the market will be like in 10 years time.

I used to think the same thing as you about Brentwood. Values for 2-bedroom units hovered between 360-400K for many years, then in the last 6 months, the same units are now going for close to 550K. I was an owner in this community for 9 years. I would have never expected the appreciation I got over this time considering the amount of land that is available to be rezoned.

The one thing about Brentwood that was underappreciated for a long time is the location. You don't get easy access to Skytrain and the highway in many locations in Metro Vancouver.

I agree hard to know. But all the historical data, would point to a detached house in any area which is still undergoing densification will be a much better investment than any condo. And in the event of a slow in the market, houses will hold their value way better than any condo, and bounce back much quicker.

Here's a question - considering how crazy the market is, would any of you sell a 1 bedroom condo in Burnaby now, and eat the approx $8k cost of early mortgage repayment penalty? Or wait it out?

Depends on what profit you're looking at, obviously.

in my opinion, the people that voted No during the last transit plebiscite are to be blamed for contributing to the unaffordability. IF broadway line get build, vancouver westside prices will fall. If westside price falls, then everywhere else will fall even faster.
