Vancouver real estate: Just for fun…

Submitted by on December 12, 2010 – 8:55 amNo Comment

This week, we’ve been report­ing on the Vancouver real estate mar­ket with our posts “Vancouver real estate: Bubble or not?” and “Want to live in Vancouver? Here’s how.”

We don’t mean to be depress­ing, but Vancouver hous­ing is just plain pricey!

So if you’d like a lit­tle relief from this real estate down­er, check out the fol­low­ing sites:

First, vis­it Real Estate Refugee, where Vancouver writer — and long-term renter — Carolyn Ali adds some humor to the city’s real estate scene.

Then, go play “Crack Shack or Mansion?

Can you tell the dif­fer­ence between a crack shack and a Vancouver, BC man­sion, list­ed for one or two mil­lion dol­lars? Find out!

There’s even a fol­low-up ver­sion: Crack Shack or Mansion II.

Have fun!
