Buying a Duplex in Vancouver [LIVING IN VANCOUVER]

Half-duplexes have become one of the most popular options for families living in Vancouver. As prices continue to rise, owning a single family detached home in Vancouver is no longer feasible for many. A house in Vancouver has become only viable for those with extremely deep pockets.

So if you are moving to Vancouver what are your options?

Not everyone is suited for condo living. Many people tire of all the rules, the lack of privacy, minimal outdoor space and the monthly maintenance fees. And if you have kids, you may want more than just two bedrooms. So what do you do?

Townhouses are also an option. However, they aren’t quite right for many living in Vancouver either. Maintenance fees, lack of individual garages and limited outdoor space can all issues for potential buyers. Is there any other alternative, though?

The answer is, YES. The classic Vancouver half-duplex can be a perfect fit for buyers looking for something more than a condo but not quite a house. For many buyers in Vancouver the duplex is ideal. And thankfully, we are seeing more and more of these being built in Vancouver and its closest suburbs such as Burnaby and Coquitlam.

In this video I delve deep into the world of Vancouver half-duplexes. We get into the pros and cons of living in a Vancouver duplex, discuss the different types of duplexes, talk about the numbers and the locations where you’ll likely find half-duplexes in Vancouver and I also offer some critical tips that I’ve learned over the years helping people buy and sell duplexes.

So whether you are moving to Vancouver or already living here, this video will help you understand one of Vancouver's most popular housing types!
