Would you like a car with that condo? Surrey developer offers cash or car with home

Buying real estate in Metro Vancouver is becoming more difficult as costs soar, but one Surrey condo developer is offering a tempting incentive.

Evolve Condominiums is offering either a storage locker full of $10,000 cash or a new Nissan Micra for 20 homebuyers.

Kiran Rai, marketing director at Macdonald Realty Platinum Project Marketing, said about 35 per cent of the allotted homes in the offer have been sold and most people have chosen the money over the car, also valued at about $10,000.

Condo developer offers car or “storage locker full of cash” as incentive, sells 300 in 3 hours

Remember THIS POST we made about Evolve in Surrey offering condos starting at $1/day? Or THIS ONE about their $93,900 units? Well they’ve got another surprise for prospective buyers of these Surrey units: each one comes with either a new car in your parking space or a storage locker full of cash. Whoa.

On their opening day they sold three hundred homes, with suites ranging from 316 to 1,294 square feet. Buyers included first-time homeowners, parents purchasing for children and a large number of investors and buyers from throughout Canada, the US and overseas.

300 Homes Sold On Opening Day, Developer Includes Cash or Car

Surrey, B.C. – Three hundred homes worth in excess of $70-million dollars sold on opening day.

To follow up the success, WestStone Group, the developer of the 35-storey Evolve tower is introducing a special program and including a car in the purchaser’s parking stall or filling the purchaser’s storage locker with cash.

“Smart investors understand the impact on resale value and coupled with the reduction of rental income without storage or parking that this can equate to thousands of dollars in lost revenue”, says Bill Morrison, President of Macdonald Realty Platinum Project Marketing, “and that’s why every home at Evolve comes with parking and storage, and now that purchasers have the choice of including a car or cash when they buy at Evolve, we expect the response to be more intense than when we first opened”

Evolve’s suites range from 316 to 1,294 square feet and buyers included first-time homeowners, parents purchasing for children and a large number of investors and buyers from throughout Canada, the US and overseas.

Evolve is the second of six towers to be built in the West Village by WestStone Group, and part of the largest piece of connected development land in Surrey worth more that one billion dollars in real estate — Over the next seven years, 2,800 homes will be constructed in West Village, connecting residents to the core of Surrey City Centre, offering easy access to transit, grocery stores, education institutions and a diverse mix of culture, arts, recreational facilities and parkland. Evolve’s expected occupancy is 2018.

For more information on how to cash in on this new deal, visit our Presentation Centre at 13328 104th Avenue, Surrey, BC or call us at 604 497 0102.

It’s official — Metro Vancouver is swept up in a real estate frenzy

It is no exaggeration to use an F-word to describe Vancouver’s current real estate scene. As in, the market is in a Frenzy.

Observers describe a perfect storm of forces coming together to create a tempestuous result: A 5.8-per-cent jobless rate in B.C., low interest rates, a devalued Canadian dollar attracting more foreign buyers, and panic over prices going even higher if buying is delayed. Even the particularly vicious winters of recent years in Eastern Canada may be having an impact.

Meanwhile, the Bank of Canada warned last Wednesday about the risk of correction in three Canadian property markets — Vancouver, Toronto and Calgary.

For the moment, few are heeding the caution. A press release sent out last week by WestStone Group, regarding its Evolve condominium project in Surrey, reported sales in a single day (April 11) of 300 condo units, worth $70 million.

Micro life — Does size really matter?

After a lifetime of living large, there comes a time when one realizes that size — at least on the bricks and mortar front — really doesn’t matter.

And so you find yourself chatting with anyone who will listen about how, at some point, you might join the downsizers, trading stairs, vacuuming and never-ending maintenance for a cosy little flat and a simpler lifestyle.

Turns out that while you’re contemplating a smaller life as yours winds down so, too, is a much younger generation whose lives are just winding up.

In case you hadn’t noticed, micro living is the new yoga. Tiny houses. Float homes. Caravans. Laneway houses. Shipping containers. Yurts. Mobile homes.

And, of course, micro lofts, those closet-free, can’t-swing-a-cat, one-room condos that are the current darling of developers, and of earnest millennials, evidenced by the numbers of buyers and open chequebooks throughout the region at the mere sniff of new micro development.
