Growing up, we always wanted to have a million dollars to buy a giant mansion with a pool. These days, a million doesn't go very far, even if you have it. These seven Vancouver homes worth over $1,000,000 show what the actual, crazy reality of homeownership is like in Vancouver right now.
Now, this isn't to say that all Vancouver homes are bad — in fact, many are quite nice and even affordable.
However, as real estate and insurance prices continue to climb, they are becoming harder and harder to find.
You've transcended lesser feelings like comfort or beauty, and no longer feel attached to material possessions like money or land. You have reached enlightenment, and deserve a home that reflects that truth.
Or maybe you’re a broke millennial like us. Maybe you’re simply looking for a laugh at the housing selling for millions out here.
Whatever the case might be, we went and found some of the most shocking places selling for high prices on the market right now. Trust us — these are not pretty.
