The quality of life among the best in the world: Vancouver
One of the richest cities in all of Canada, Vancouver also stands out in the construction sector.
Those who want to buy a house in Canada, in fact, will be surprised in his search for a small but important detail. Indeed, the city is a true model of sustainability.
The climate is mild and is an element not to be underestimated. It allows visitors to spend even long stays without having to worry about a sudden thermal shock. There are no better times to visit the city. Every month of the year is characterized by pleasant temperatures.
Variegated the receptive sector.Vancouver is very famous for the '' Robson Street '', the shopping street, Davie Streen for art lovers and full immersions in the local culture. But the strong point is Granville Street, which is teeming with artists, theaters, nightclubs where the Canadian nightlife is concentrated and international fairs are organized.
The economy is based on the riches offered by the territory. In fact there are numerous forests that extend throughout the territory, mineral resources (coal, iron ore, copper, zinc, lead, gold, silver), fishing and the port, a place of trade and international connections.
Therefore, thanks to these inestimable resources, the North American city has been able to adopt green policies, which have allowed it to obtain the title of "family friendly".
The third most populated city in Canada, in 2015 announced that it wanted to make a quantum leap in the field of renewable energy. And this sector also includes construction.
The change in real estate has been radical. A glaring example? The increase in the number of skyscrapers. In the 90s, they were not very many. Since 1998, the year of great migratory flows to Canada, the demand for housing has grown exponentially, leading to the emergence of residential neighborhoods in the central area. Today Vancouver is the third city developed vertically after New York and San Francisco.
Let us now look at statistical data on a national scale.
Carefully analyzing the residential real estate market in the city immediately emerges the series of uninterrupted price increases from 2010 to today. annual increases are double-digit and even 17% for 2016 and an estimate of 20.2% for 2017.
The most noteworthy price increases are those in condominiums and the biggest increase is recorded in studios and apartments with a 24% increase in sales prices compared to 2016.
Usually a two-room apartment is sold at a price between 640 thousand and 670 thousand Canadian dollars (432-452 thousand euros). Very high prices but consistent with the quality of life among the highest in the world.
It is not surprising that in recent years there has been a boom in transfers throughout Canada and, incidentally, exorbitantly in Vancouver.
