Buying a home seems like an unreachable dream; especially in Vancouver. The housing market here is insane and it’s next to impossible to find anything that is clean, spacey, and in a desirable location without breaking the bank. But not all hope is lost. If you’re a millennial looking to purchase a home in Vancouver, it can be done. We found cheap Vancouver apartments that you might actually afford someday.
What even is affordable housing? Rent in Vancouver is literally so expensive. Sometimes it feels like it would be cheaper to buy.
The good news is is that not all homes in Vancouver are over $1 million. We managed to track down seven homes for sale right now in Vancouver that are somehow under that impossibly high seven-figure number.
From classy condos to full homes with a backyard, we found seven very different and affordable homes that you can afford without having to sell a kidney. They may not be the most luxurious places in Vancouver, but a home is a home.
Homes at good prices rarely last long. If you are serious about purchasing a home, you may want to do it now. These spots won't stick around forever and in this market, these are insanely good deals.
