Vancouver, BC vs. Johns Creek, GA
“A Real Gem” – $3,190,000
4555 W 9th Ave., Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, V6R 2E2
In West Point Grey for $3.190 million you can purchase this very charming yet original condition home, although that charm probably won’t phase any buyers as it is listed at lot value and will likely be torn down. Labeled as an ‘old timer’, this two storey home is a bit deceiving from the street as it offers over 3,600 square feet with 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The description says the 0.17 acre lot (7,590 square feet) can be subdivided into two legal lots. There’s no doubt this home could be turned into a real head turner, but at this price don’t count on it. It’s also pretty sad that agents with multi-million dollar listings seem to think listing photos like these are suitable – land value or not – take a decent photo!
