Vancouver housing prices are dramatically affected by a number of important pieces of criteria, one of the main factors for a lot of Parents, especially immigrant parents, is how the secondary school of the property for sale catchment ranks with the Fraser Institute.
You will notice that West side homes in Vancouver are substantially higher than those on the East Side of the city, while location is a major factor in the prices of these established neighbourhoods we also see prices in neighbourhood to neighbourhood change yearly based on the annual Fraser Institute report.
Private schools tend to rank in the top 5 each year, the price of homes change based on the catchment of the public schools due to children living in these areas being given enrolment. Lord Byng school has been ranked very high this year and in turn prices of houses and land value “knock down” houses have seen a dramatic increase in prices due to parents wanting to enrol their children in this highly ranked school.
Earlier this year I sold a property on 21st Avenue for $1,710,000 which was a record price for a 33′ lot West of Dunbar. This was mainly driven by the rankings provided below.
The Fraser Institute is an independent Canadian public policy research and educational organization with active research ties with similar independent organizations in more than 80 countries around the world. We are often referred to as a “think tank” and have been ranked by a University of Pennsylvania study as the top think tank in Canada.
