Vancouver vs. Scottsdale

Blue Awnings – $2,198,000

565 W 50th Ave., Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

This is a perfect example of what $2.2 million will get you anywhere close to Cambie street in Vancouver, BC.  Originally built in 1958, this 2,909 square foot home is in exceptional condition on a lovely tree lined street.  Other than the outdated decor & kitchen, this home is actually quite cozy.  The only problem is the price.

The agent says it would be ideal for a growing family or for a retired couple.  Please tell me what new family or retired couple can afford $2.2 million, and if they can why would they want to buy a home like this?  It just doesn’t make sense.


If pink is your colour then you may fall in love with the master suite, the floors, walls and ceiling are all pink!


Mediterranean Acreage – $2,195,000

10196 E Whispering Wind Drive, Scottsdale, Arizona

 The amount of bang for you buck in Scottsdale, Arizona doesn’t even compare to Vancouver, BC.  This 6,155 square foot home was built in 2000, sits on 2.42 private acres and is priced $3,000 less than the property in Vancouver.  It was built by Greage Custom Homes, designed by Tim Johnson, and the interior design was done by Linda Seeger.  Within the 6,155 square foot floor plan is an awe inspiring two-storey great room with walls of glass and a full height fireplace feature wall.

 The gourmet kitchen is fully fitted with top of the line appliances, a beautiful vaulted ceiling, and an abundance of counter space.

 There’s also an expansive master suite complete with sitting area & fireplace, hardwood flooring, beamed ceiling, and a private patio.   Which would you choose?  Vancouver or Scottsdale?
