Absurd Vancouver Property: Vancouver vs. PEI


Last week we compared what your money would buy you in Vancouver vs. Newfoundland. This week, we are looking on Prince Edward Island.

I'm going to shoot a little lower with the budget this week and see what we can find between $700-800K.

First up this cute Cape Cod-style abode:

Prince Edward Island house

Situated on over half an acre of water-front land, this home has three bedrooms, and two-and-a-half bathrooms. The lower level has a large rec room with walk out to the well landscaped grounds and to the water. All for $737K. Sigh...

For $748K, you could buy this six-bedroom home:

Prince Edward Island house

This one sits on a third of an acre and boasts a massive living room, separate dining room, separate kitchen and family room, office and study all on the main level for enjoyable living and entertaining. Wow.

Bump your budget up to $800K and you could be the proud owner of this heritage home is historic Charlottetown:

Prince Edward Island home

Professionally restored in 2009 to an exceptional condition, this property was operated as an inn. There are four master suites, each with its own ensuite bathroom. The third floor has a large sitting area, with another bedroom & ensuite.

Back in Vancouver, we're lucky to find a decent house for under $800K. Here's one that is, at least, standing:

Vancouver house

A bargain by Vancouver standards, the listing states that the lot is level and sunny (when the sun comes out!). Well...that's something, I guess.

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

Stay tuned - next week we head to Nova Scotia!
