Absurd Vancouver Property: Vancouver vs. Halifax


Last week we had a look at what around $800K could buy you in Vancouver vs. PEI. This week we're headed to Nova Scotia, with a budget of just under $2 million.

First up is this respectable home located on Halifax's prestigious Younge Avenue.

With over 5,000 square feet of living space, this home has five bedrooms, three bathrooms and sits on a 10,000 square foot lot. I would be happy to live in the master suite with its "luxurious spa-like six-piece en suite and walk in closet."

Moving on to this oceanfront home in Halifax Harbour.

This location "...ensures privacy whether you are entertaining inside or on the 1,000 sq ft plus wrap around decking. Spectacular ocean views from every bedroom and main living area." Magnificent.

Hello! You had me at pool. At almost 6,500 square feet, this house has five bedrooms and three bathrooms. There is an exercise room, as well as a "spa-like" en suite in the master bedroom. Apparently Nova Scotians like their bathrooms super fancy!

...and back in Vancouver a budget just short of $2 million will fetch you this charming home:

vancouver $1.9 million

My oh my.  She's a looker. Two bedrooms and one bathroom on a standard lot in MacKenzie Heights.  No spa-like bathroom here, but you don't need one...right? If you can afford this place, surely, you can afford to take yourself for a facial somewhere else.

Vancouver...are you f%#king kidding me??!!
