Subdivide and Conquer- New Trends in Selling Real Estate in 2014

Announcing the Subdivide and Conquer Seminar – New Trends in Selling Real Estate in Vancouver, BC

For sellers in Vancouver looking to dramatically increase the value of their property and sell quickly


Vancouver, BC – Feb 28 2014 – Sellers of real estate in the Vancouver market can seize on an emerging trend that not only increases the value of their property but makes it sell more quickly. As the demand for mid-rise housing continues throughout Vancouver, it is not only where your property is located that is important, it is the associated lot size and zoning that needs to considered. The “Subdivide and Conquer” seminar being held on April 12, 2014 will capitalize on this new trend by providing proven insights from experts in the field.


“Vancouver residents want more affordable units for families,” says Geraldine Santiago, REMAX Realtor and published author, “a lot of the downtown construction features small layouts that appeal to couples or empty nesters. But, what happens when genY and Xers in these buildings decide to have children? Capacity is needed and developers and builders are seeking options.”


Lot size and zoning are now key components of your sales strategy when pricing and marketing real estate in Vancouver. Builders and developers are continuing to buy up properties to meet the continued demand for family housing within city limits. 


Do you know your property’s zoning options? Zoning not only refers to the division of land into two parcels, but it can include consolidation of two or more parcels into a single site, the adjustment of an existing property line or dedication of land for road or lane purposes. 


If you are looking to sell your Vancouver property, seize upon the opportunity to learn about how best leverage subdividing to optimize your property’s value by attending the “Subdivide and Conquer” seminar on April 12, 2014. Topics will include: laneway homes; in-fill and coach houses; duplex; triplex; and architects, builders/developers.


“Vancouver’s real estate market has an appetite for transactions but it’s difficult to find deals,” states Santiago, “learn how to best position your property with new trends in zoning.”
