Last week a new client, who is a first time Vancouver condo buyer, ask me "where in Vancouver shall I buy a condo?" I asked her where she was living and did she like the neighbourhood. If so, that's a good place to start the search for a new home. If you don't like your current neighbourhood or can't afford it, sit down and write a priority list, number your criteria one to ten and focus on the top three priorities.

Where is the Next Up and Coming Vancouver Neighbourhood?
There is good value to be found in the next up and coming Vancouver neighbourhood, rather than selecting the current trendy areas. In my opinion Marpole and Chinatown have great upside. Once you've selected a couple of neighbourhoods, go and spend a day hanging out there, observe who lives there, check out the stores, the amenities, the transportation and other criteria is important to you.
