AKING PRICE IS LESS THAN PREVIOUSLY ACCEPTED OFFER PRICE!” – a typo and some ALL CAPS NEWS.  “yard is partly beautifully landscaped” – and partly horribly landscaped I suppose?  They pulled the listing last June and then relisted for $100K more in April

This fantastic 4,408 sq ft home has 5 bedrooms/5 bathrooms, high ceilings, great finishes, wide plank hardwood floors, radiant heat throughout, flat driveway and alarm system and is wired for sound.

Sit on your spacious patio overlooking the beautiful yard and lush greenbelt and enjoy the sounds of the babbling creek. Ideal central location near Park Royal/Lions Gate bridge, schools, transit, Capilano Regional Park, trail to the seawall and not too close to the highway.

Don’t recognize this property?  This is the infamous fake house that was making the rounds in the media a couple of months ago as the most expensive home in Canada complete with fake gold pictures that were passed off as being the current property which happens to be an old home.  They were exposed in the blogosphere and ridiculed and the realtor denied any wrong doing, quickly tried to edit and remove pictures and the media conveniently forgot about it.  The Whispers Blog had the full story, here is a link to catch you up:

http://whispersfromtheedgeoftherainforest.blogspot.ca/2013/02/fake-condo-line-ups-fake-press-photo.html

I wonder if there will be a followup story in the media about the biggest asking price drop in Canadian history for a residential sale?  $18 million and counting.  What has also been dropped are the fake house pictures and realtor Laura McLaren who was the master mind of this debacle.  

This one could be a 75%+ dropper quite easily and has already listed for well over 4 years

Exclusive, private, 34,000 +/- sqft offering approximately 400 +/- feet of waterfront. Surrounded by mature landscaping, an ideal loacation for a beautiful residence with unobstructed exposure to the picturesque waterfront, harbour and cityscapes…Please call for more information..Once in a lifetime opportunity!

“Open house March 17, 2-4” – oh wait… Down close to a million and 30% on this new build.  Lot was worth over a million way back in 2007 and I bet this home came close to another million all-in to demolish, plan and build.  Already they would have been much better off selling the lot

Magnificent brand new 4 bedroom 5 bath architecturally designed custom built home completed in 2012 by a builder for himself (no HST) No expense spared, the quality of this home is amazing. Wonderful open plan for entertaining features include polished granite, hardwood floors, gorgeous European contemporary style kitchen with Miele appliances and Caesar stone counters, beautifully designed bathrooms, high quality mill work throughout with solid core fir doors and window frames, radiant floor heat powered by a high efficiency Viessman boiler and recessed lighting. This home located centrally in West Vancouver is very close to some of West Vancouver’s best schools, Park Royal Shopping and with easy access to downtown. Don’t wait to view this wonderful home. Open house March 17, 2-4

Desperation Score: 48.9

And the most desperate property in West Vancouver is in Panorama Village – funny that they were trying to sell a townhouse for $1.888 million!  “West Vancouver’s largest view carriage home” is kind of like saying “the worlds tallest midget” – doesn’t really work very well.  Perfect as a “pied-a-terre” – well you don’t actually own the land but don’t let things like that bother you from writing your fantastic description.  To be fair, it’s a nice looking place if it wasn’t for the insane prices they have been trying to get and the maintenance fee is $600/month!!!

I am proud to present West Vancouver’s largest view carriage home at prestigious Westpointe. This one-of-a-kind gated home has been extensively updated with taste, ingenuity, and the creation of a home office, fourth bedroom/bathroom, and a recreation/theater room. BBQ and relax on 450 sq ft of covered outdoor living space to take in sweeping ocean and city views from Mount Baker to Vancouver Island. Enjoy spacious living, 12.5′ vaulted ceilings, gas/wood burning fireplaces, HVAC, elevator access, grocery lift, swimming pool/tennis court, & a private over height garage. Developed by reputable Polygon Homes with a 10 year warranty on the rain-screened envelope plus new windows, decks, & glass railings. Great value, spectacular views, & security in a tranquil, prestigious, & convenient location close to Mulgrave and Collingwood private schools. Perfect for families, downsizers, and as a pied-a-terre. OPEN SUN 2-4.

West Vancouver Spotlight – August 26, 2012

Here are the top 10 properties currently listed in West Vancouver with the largest overall drop in asking price since early March

Some Highlights

  • It takes a 20% drop to make this top 10 up from 19%, 19% and 15% the last three months
  • 2 of 9 listings with assessment information are now listed below assessment
  • #1 initially listed about 50% above assessment.  Now they are asking for below assessment…
  • #5 has an incomplete description…  Hey Brock Smeaton, it’s a 3 million dollar listing and it has been listed for about 100 days – fix the description!!!
  • Maybe #9’s realtor should purchase this place.  He says “The finest quality home I have ever seen in Lions Bay”.  Sounds a bit used car salesman-y
