As of November 3, we can now start building coach houses in West Vancouver and the District of North Van has passed the draft bylaw as well.
Some of my clients may find this a better option than selling. If you sell and pull out all your equity, where will you park your money? What is safer than your house in one of the most desireable places to live? I am now getting requests to sell condos and homes so that people can joint own a property. Each takes half the equity of the home and puts it into 2 houses on the new property, one each. Its has feed up capital to travel and help kids go to University which still keeping currency in this market. A second home is called a coach house on the North Shore, but a laneway house in Vancouver. Call me if you would like to know more .
