“You’re gorgeous, baby, you’re sophisticated, you live well…Vancouver is Manhattan with mountains. It’s a liquid city, a tomorrow city, equal parts India, China, England, France and the Pacific Northwest. It’s the cool North American sibling.” - The New York Times

There are quite a few properties that nice and affordable but with ongoing increases in insurance prices, it’d becoming harder and harder to find. Although, having an amazing realtor that will go above and beyond to find the perfect home within your budget is crucial.
