Buy with or without parking?

A parking spot in Victoria for $35,000-$50,000? What, are you crazy?  Sounds expensive but with more buildings opting to create less parking spots and the bikes lanes etc. parking will likely only become more and more of a premium.  Check out this latest Hong Kong parking spot:

Might make you think twice about buying a unit with no parking, even if you don’t need it yourself.    Or maybe this doesn’t matter and only furthers our need to be MORE GREEN!!

 

 

2018 off to a slower start…

It’s not hard to believe Jan 2018 is slower in home sales vs tail end of 2017 with mortgage rule changes but I forecast a robust year regardless if inventory levels do not pick up more.  I think this spring will be a very telling season in Victoria real estate and how mortgage rule changes will have taken root.   http://www.timescolonist.com/business/greater-victoria-home-sales-slip-as-buyers-beat-test-1.23162355
