Vancouver Real Estate
The West End is, in my opinion, Vancouver’s in-city suburb. The West End is the only area you will find in Downtown Vancouver where detached residential homes exist on tree-lined streets. Homes in this area are older heritage homes, with many Craftsmen style homes (strating in the lower million dollar range) that have been converted to duplexes and triplexes. The rental rate is some of the highest in this community of the Downtown Vancouver area so for investors looking for small rental investments, the area is ideal.
Just blocks away from the neighborhood is one of the city’s most populous beaches, English Bay. The close-by commercial corridors, Robson, Denman and Davie are also a 5 minute walk from the residential area and thus makes it a great home for those who like a more quiet lifestyle without the hustle and bustle of Downtown Vancouver.
Condos here can be found starting in the higher $200,000′s and lower $300,000′s. Buildings here tend to be older as most of the highrises are developed closer to Coal Harbour, Yaletown and Downtown, and thus provide more space compared to the new construction units with some of them being in the 300 sqft’s.
Several locally owned eateries call the West End home, including several Sushi places, Greek places and Gelato shops. The area is quite ecclectic as well and funky boutiques are seen one after another. My recommendations for eats? Try Stepho’s Greek Taverna on Davie Street (expect a lineup, my trick is to order take-out to avoid them), Tanpopo’s on Denman for all you can eat sushi, or Samurai’s on Davie, a little hole-in-the-wall type place with AMAZING food!

Last week Laura Howren from our team and I decided to share a piece of Yaletown with those of you who aren’t familiar with the area, and even those of you who are! Obviously we couldn’t visit EVERY store, but we did hop into places that caught our little eyes…Yaletown is FULL of these types of boutiques & shops, you can spend a whole day there and you still wouldn’t have seen and experienced everything they have to offer. And this is within a 4 block square!
