You've all seen the news reports circulating that people are leaving the city in droves to the suburbs! Yes, that's true. However, there are still plenty of people who live in the city and rely on public transportation to get around! If you're considering on buying an investment property or a home with potentially higher long-term appreciation value, find a home within close walking distance from a SkyTrain station! Here are some new SkyTrain network extension developments to expect in the coming years:

In the Fraser Valley region, the Surrey Langley SkyTrain project consultations are underway with the potential extension from the Expo Line beginning from Surrey's King George SkyTrain station to 203 Street in the City of Langley. The route will run along the Fraser Highway and is projected to be a total 22 minute commute with trains departing every few minutes. Homes located near this potential future skytrain line is currently selling very well. Construction is currently slated to begin in 2022 with scheduled service to begin late 2025.

COVID-19 has had a real impact on real estate and mortgage financing in Vancouver. I teamed up with fellow UBC alumni friend, tech entrepreneur, and mortgage broker, Paul Davidescu, to speak about ways to leverage these impacts to find a dream property with the best possible mortgage.

The main points cover the importance of mortgage pre-approvals when rates are low, how real estate trends changed leading up to COVID-19, and what you can do now to be a step ahead of the people who are going into hibernation mode.
