Spring is in the air. The flowers are in bloom, the weather’s getting warmer, and all signs point to another sun-filled summer in Vancouver. With its proximity to countless parks, islands, mountains and lakes – not to mention the Pacific Ocean, beaches and endless patios right on our doorsteps – Vancouver is arguably the best place in the world to be, especially during the warmer months.
Vancouver Real Estate Market
Vancouverites are out in droves enjoying the first taste of what promises to be another epic summer, and it appears the Vancouver real estate market has also been hit with a case of spring fever. A constant flow of home buyers and sellers led to an increase in activity across the board this past April. April 2009 also saw increases in sales as the Vancouver real estate market began to recover from the recession, but this year’s exorbitant numbers demonstrate a steady upward trend that has advanced the Vancouver real estate market past recovery into growth. As the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver reports, sales of detached, attached, and apartment properties increased, making this the fifth-highest selling April on record. The same report also indicates the benchmark price of an attached unit has increased by 16.4% this last year, mirroring the 16.9% and 18.9% increases for apartment properties and detached properties, respectively.
Yaletown remains one of the foremost places to live in Vancouver, and one of the best places to enjoy the warm weather. Hamilton and Mainland Streets are littered with trendy restaurants and stylish boutiques, and wide promenades lined with comfortable patios invite patio-hopping and people watching. The vibe is always energetic and most places are within a four-block radius. Should you desire a longer walk, the seawall is steps away along with seaside cafes and a gourmet grocery store.
Yaletown showcases some of the best properties Vancouver real estate has to offer, and the Domus is no exception. Located at 1055 Homer between Nelson and Helmcken, these luxury condos feature stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors, and porcelain Italian sinks. The amenities include a furnished guest suite, training gym, yoga centre and an entertainment room with an adjoining garden. The crowning glory has to be the 27th floor penthouse. Custom re-designed, the 1966 sq ft 2 bedroom, 3 bathroom condo also has 842 sq ft of outdoor living space, home to an open-air grill and a hot tub from which one can enjoy the magnificent views. The Domus encompasses all that Yaletown living stands for: style, comfort, and sophistication.
As the temperature increases, so does our desire to entertain, and stunning Yaletown condos like those in the Domus are the perfect places in which to do so.
