Proximity to public transit is a must to all condo buyers.

Almost every new condo developments are sandwich between super nosy flyover highways. What else can we talk about 'quality' location ?

Victoria Hill is a rough location unless your retired. Got friends and family who bought into those pre sale projects and it takes them 30-45minutes just to get in and out of their units everyday to the main road during rush hour. That patullo bridge is always backed up and causes a nightmare for many neighbourhoods like Victoria Hill. One of two bridges that is not tolled to Surrey. Same can be said buying near Cambie bridge by downtown etc. Cambie and Broadway can be a zoo everyday. Not worth driving if you live in and out of those areas. Be smart and wise like you said about buying in the right location.

Smoking neighbors reduce the value of the unit.

I live in a decent building (Fullerton Ave in North Vancouver), neighbors below are smokers. Strata bylaw dictates that there is no smoking, no BBQ's on the balconies. However people smoke inside apartments and smoke goes out the windows or other ways and gets into non smokers units. As you can imagine it affects non smokers greatly. I'm not alone as I have spoke to a number of people. Strata can't impose fines on smokers for some reason but for loud noise it can.
What can be done?
Can Strata change bylaws? Can non smokers sue all the smokers for bringing the value of the property down or for loss of rental income or health issues or religious reasons? Anything?

Hi Owen, thank you for yet another informative video! It might be a bit unrelated to this video, I have 2 wood frame apartments. One is 11 years old and the other one is 7 years. Recently I read the news about a second wave of leaky condos and it is hurting the owners. What's your take on when to sell the wood frames? See if you will have a vlog on leaky condos coming up next. Thank you.

Working in the service business in Vancouver, accessing those buildings was a huge nightmare. Every visit is a marry go round of traffic jam, looping around the city several times until your lucky enough to get situated in the proper lane to turn in to it.

I have to love your channel and these weekly updates. Totally agree with your opinion, actually I have been to one of pre-sale luxurious condos near Cambie bridge. I have imagined the same scenario, and it makes my prediction even more solid coming from your invaluable professional advice. Loving your book so far and finished it just few days ago and looking to read it again to get it in my head better. I have few questions to ask in regards to where I should take and would look forward to a conversation in the future as a same local Vancouverite!

the building at the North end of Cambie bridge is stunning. one of my favorites. However living 35 feet from the bridge is not a great in my opinion. Guess they hope the suites bells and whistles blind you from looking outside….lol.
