How Suite It Is
Home With Suites For Sale across Metro Vancouver & the Fraser Valley
Home Suite Homes is a specialized website dedicated to the marketing and sale of all Homes With Suites across Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley including the Howe Sound, Whistler, Chilliwack, and Hope.
Homes with suites are useful to Buyers that are looking for a Mortgage Helper and/or an Inlaw suite providing assistance to a family member. Homes with Suites are also proving attractive when blended family generations join to purchase a home.
A new trend is also occurring as a result changing building codes in many cities that are now allowing the construction or renovation of Garden Suites or Coach Houses.
Also new home developments across Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley find Builders and Developers are sensitive to the demand for homes with suites and as a result are including roughed in plumbing and electricity whether the basement is finished or not. And then the addition of the basement suite can be easily completed either by the Builder or by the Buyer.
In keeping with recent advice from the British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) and the Real Estate Council of British Columbia (RECBC), all open houses have been temporarily disabled on the website. And a REALTOR®'s ability to market physical open houses on REALTOR.ca has been removed, but virtual ones remain available.
To date, the Real Estate Boards have encouraged their members to follow government recommendations on limiting social interactions associated with COVID-19.
These Real Estate Boards have made this explicit recommendation today with the support of their Real Estate Brokerages and after an assessment of the latest information and commentary from public health and other government authorities.
Earlier this week, these Real Estate Boards also removed the rule requiring that properties listed on MLS® be made available for showings.
“Realtors want to do their part to help prevent the spread of illness in our communities and to meet the housing needs of residents in a responsible way,” Ashley Smith, the REBGV president said. “We’ve heard from some in the community who are unhappy that their Realtors are not holding Open Houses. To those people, we ask for your understanding given the public health crisis we all face today.”
Anyone looking to buy or sell a home in today’s environment is encouraged to discuss COVID-19 preparedness with their REALTOR®. For example, if you recently travelled abroad or are unwell, do not view a property and stay home.
If you’re a seller, talk with your REALTOR® about alternative approaches to open houses, such as virtual showings and other technology-based solutions.
If you’re a buyer, limit the number of people viewing a property, sanitize your hands before and after a showing, perhaps wear gloves, and avoid touching doorknobs and other surfaces in the property.
For more information about how to operate in today’s housing market, contact your local REALTOR® or visit the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver, the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board, or the Chilliwack & District Real Estate Board.
