Wrong thread but I also agree, how the heck does one do that during rush hour?

If it's a solo accident, the driver must have been going pretty fast.

That is a steal if you can find a 1br basement suite for $1,000. I'm seeing nicer basement suites for for $1,200 to $1,300 now because there is such limited supply.

This one is $1,850 for a 1 bedroom + Den. Now that is robbery.

How much do you think a 1 bed + den approximately 600 Sq.ft., 1 parking, would rent for near Joyce/Boundary/Kingsway area? (pretty newly built) Would it be around $1200-1300?

You would easily get over $1300 for that, I would expect you could get closer to $1500.

You won't be getting entire houses for that money in Richmond or Metrotown. You will get them in Coquitlam or south of the Fraser.

vancouver, BC apts/housing for rent - craigslist

I don't think it makes a lot of sense to rent a house unless you have 3+ kids. Sure, it makes sense financially to rent the house rather than to own it, but I think what we're seeing in the market is that a lot of families would still rather buy a 1700-2000 square foot townhouse rather than a detached house because given low interest rates, you could own a townhouse at $2500/month and at least continue to build equity rather than paying $2500/month for a house that you probably don't need. Opportunity costs, blah, blah, blah notwithstanding.

I'm with lowside.

You'll easily get anywhere from $1200-$1500 because it's a relatively brand new building and easily accessible (by car or transit)

Great to hear! But it makes me rethink my initial plans to live in it hahaha but if the rent is covering my mortgage payments + some side cash then it is very very tempting!

It highly depends on your current living situation as well. If you're still living at home and parents don't mind then I'd probably look to rent it out to help pay off some of the mortgage first, but that's me haha

Those prices are insane. My mom's way too nice, both basements suites are rented out for cheap. The 1 bedroom for $850 which was rented out last year. The 2 bedroom side goes for $950 but that was rented out like 3 years ago, plus she never raised rent. What's is considered nicer seeing that the 1 bedrooms goes for $1000 these days. Currently internet and utilities are included but was not able to include cable. There's also private laundry for the tenants in the garage. House was built in 2007.

Sure. All in Richmond. The ones near metro are shit, just like most houses in Burnaby. All 1950s-1970s falling apart crap.

4 bedroom in Richmond

Beautiful 4 Bedroom Townhouse (Central Richmond)

4 BDRM + 2 1/2 BATHRM Townhouse for Rent in West Richmond Area

Renovated Whole House For Rent In Steveston

Four Level Five Bedroom Townhouse

There's a few more.

if it is the new tower and is within 5min walking distance of Joyce easily $1500/mon. That area is really popular.

1bd 650-700sf unit in my building (river district) recently rented for $1400 unfurnished. When I was still single I contemplated renting mine out for $1500 fully furnished which wouldve covered everything with some cash in my pocket and then rent a room at my friends place for $500/month but I would've had to take the upstairs room next to his mom. I just couldn't go through with that part. Lol

Vancouver is done. It is no longer the city that I grew up in and around. It's become nothing more than a haven for foreign money. The mountains are full of selfie taking hipsters, while every service and opportunity we have is oversaturated. The rinks are always full. You can't ride the seawall without hitting a homeless addict, or a confused tourist. But worst of all, you can't afford to raise a family or live like we used to. I was fortunate to grow up on a nice property in a nice area. Whereas my kids have friends who live in high density, where crime and drug use are rampant.

When I went to Kamloops I was met with open spaces, polite people, and a great climate. I am an outdoorsman. I like to ride bikes, I like to shoot guns, and I like to have the freedom and space to enjoy these things. You can no longer do any of my passions in the lower mainland without running into trouble.

So consider that anyone who doesn't subscribe to the "lifestyle" of Vancouver living just doesn't feel at home here anymore.

I don't look like this.


So I'm completely fine with going to a place where I can fit in.
