“Fabulous First Time Offered” – $698,000
7855 Windsor Street, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, V5X 4A7
The exterior of this house is anything but fabulous. While the interiors are actually quite nice with real hardwood flooring, upgraded windows, fresh paint and a wood burning fireplace – it will be difficult for potential buyers to get past the very very sad looking exterior. The house is 1,772 square feet with 3 bedrooms & 1 bathroom on a 3,696 square foot lot.
“Priced to Sell!” – $725,000
3036 Plymouth Drive, North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, V7H 1C7
This is one of those listings where the agent only uploaded a photo of the exterior so you just know you’re in for a treat when you go view it. The listing says it has an updated kitchen & “some updated flooring” but in mostly original condition. It was built in 1956, offers 2,186 square feet with 3 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms on a 9,588 square foot lot.
“Small Renovated Home” – $738,000
3026 Kings Avenue, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, V5R 4T2
It may be on Kings Avenue but this is no castle. At 830 square feet this is one of the smallest ‘Insanely Priced Vancouver Homes’ we’ve ever posted. Like most of the other homes this to is being sold as land value only. There are 2 bedrooms & 1 bathroom on a 4,386 square foot lot.
“No Listing Description” – $749,000
2594 E 22nd Avenue, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, V5M 2X5
This is how you know your agent is doing a terrific job. This property has been uploaded to the MLS with this single photo and no description. The size of the home isn’t even shown. The only information we know about this one is that is offers 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms on a 4,788 square foot lot. Perhaps it will just sell itself.
“Rented for $2,400/Month” – $769,000
5965 Boundary Road, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, V5R 2R2
It’s hard to believe somebody would pay $2,400/month to rent this 1,600 square foot home. The off centered front door/stairs would drive me crazy. The listing says some recent updates have been done including cabinets, flooring, paint, and windows – however they didn’t include any pictures of the inside. There are a total of 4 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms on a 4,603 square foot lot.
“Absolute Gem” – $800,000
5566 Chester Street, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, V5W 3B2
The first line in the description says, “Absolute GEM! This is the home you have been waiting for!” I have the suspicion this sentence does not accurately describe this home. Like most of these other listings the agent only uploaded this one photo, therefore there is nothing to back up this “Absolute Gem” nonsense. The listing also says, “Outstanding potential to transform into your dream home”, which would mean this home ‘COULD’ be a gem but currently isn’t. It offers 2,200 square feet with 5 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms on a 3,499 square foot lot.
“Original Owner” – $828,500
5391 Slocan Street, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, V5R 2A8
More times than not when you see ‘original owner’ it means there has been zero updating. There is no way of knowing what the inside looks like since the agent only uploaded two exterior pictures. This home is 1,800 square feet with 2 bedrooms & 1 bathroom on a 4,576 square foot lot.
“Potential for Redevelopment” – $849,000
618 W 22nd Street, North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, V7M 2A7
This 1,908 square foot home was built in 1957 and offers 4 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms on a 6,750 square foot lot. It’s described as a “well kept house good for long living”, but also having “potential for redevelopment.” Regardless what you want to do with it, the curb appeal needs some major work.
“Quiet North Burnaby” – $889,000
7080 Paulus Crescent, Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada, V5A 1P5
As we slowly get closer to the million dollar mark the homes are not getting any better. This 1,761 square foot home was built in 1959 and offers 3 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms on a 6,780 square foot lot.
“New Roof…7 years ago..” – $918,000
7263 Barnet Road, Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada, V5A 1E3
At what point does a ‘new roof’ just become an old roof? Regardless one of the main features of this home is a roof installed 7 years ago. The house was built in 1950 and offers 1,680 square feet with 3 bedrooms & 1 bathroom.
“Absolutely Prime Killarney” – $998,000
2485 E 51st Avenue, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, V5S 1P7
This 4,767 square foot lot is priced just shy of $1,000,000. It’s described as being flat, level, and South facing. The description also notes that the current 2,330 square foot home is still very livable with 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Not exactly the million dollar home I was expecting.
“Wilderness” – $1,728,000
3410 W 41st Avenue, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, V6N 3E4
If you’ve ever dreamed of living in the wilderness, this may be the house for you. Listed at a mind-blowing $1,728,000 there’s 1,820 square feet with 5 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms on a 9,289 square foot lot. This also may be one of the worst listing photos we’ve seen. The house looks like it’s sinking.
