6 Homes For Sale In Vancouver That Are The Cheapest On The Market Right Now

Purchasing a house in Vancouver is next to impossible. If you can find something, chances are its not affordable. Not only that, but there are very few detached homes for sale. Most homes are actually part of an apartment complex or other confusing configuration. Owning a home is ideal especially if you want to start a family or just have some peace and quiet. We did a little digging and found six homes for sale in Vancouver that are actually affordable. And by affordable we mean under $1 million. 

Vancouver is a seriously expensive city. Many of us millennials won't be able to afford a home until we are in our 80s.

In some instances, it is cheaper to purchase a private island. Seriously, some islands around B.C. are cheaper than most average homes in Vancouver.

All these homes are under $1 million which means that while it's not an ideal price, it’s going to be the best we can get in this city. If you're looking to purchase a home in Vancouver, then we wish you luck. These six homes are a great place to start.
