13 Vancouver Fixer-Uppers For Under $1 Million (PHOTOS)


Living in Vancouver is wonderful. It's one of the most liveable cities in the world. And the beauty of residing in a place where everyone and his cockapoo wants to live, is the opportunity it affords you to craft your perfect house from the studs up.

That's right. Because who would want to buy a nicely cared for, tastefully finished, fully maintained property in a desirable neighbourhood, when they could tackle a teardown (sorry, fixer-upper) in an up-and-coming location with few amenities but lots of character? Now, that's what makes a house a home, isn't it?

And what bargains you can find if you just lower your expectations a little, and prepare to compromise on those tiny details. Imagine: you can actually buy a single family home for under $1 million. Even for as little as $649,000. We know, right? Where do we sign?

Check out 13 Vancouver fixer-uppers listed for under $1 million:
