  1. A beautiful home by a gifted architect. But the asking price is quite a bit higher than the appraised 2014 value($1,143,000). Its a huge premium to pay relative to other homes in the neighbourhood. And the renovation is now 10 years old.
    It would require a buyer savvy enough to have amassed $1.8 million, yet emotional enough to pay those premiums.And since the work was done over a number of years by the homeowner, i would want to verify all the permits and have a home inspection.

    • Jim, thank you for you insight. I guess seeing houses at average $2 million and up in vancouver west side, makes 1.8 mill seem like a deal. the real trouble with buyers and this property is that it doesn’t have sweeping views which is what most buyers want these days.
