review i am a home owner

Home ownership wasn’t something I’d considered until Cornerstone came along. One look at the showhome (nice) and a conversation with their mortgage-savvy sales team, and I was sold. I walked in on a whim, thinking, “There’s no way I can afford this”, and walked out on top of the world. My folks agree — Cornerstone is a smart decision. Marcon has a great reputation; they’ve been around as long as I’ve been alive.

1 & 2 BEDROOM HOMES FROM $687/MONTH* See our showhome at cornerstoneliving.ca or at 5655 - 210A St, Langley, Saturday to Thursday, 12-5. Call 604.534.6000.

November 11, 2010

Give the gift of warmth GVHBA gears up for 15th Coats for Kids initiative TRICIA LESLIE He noticed them on his way to work one cold winter morning, 15 years ago. Just regular kids, trudging their way to school, as usual ... but they weren’t dressed for the chilly weather. At first, Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association president and CEO Peter Simpson thought the youngsters were, perhaps, going for the ‘I’m too cool to wear a winter jacket’ attitude that youth often strive to exude. “It was a particularly cold day, and I thought either they’re not wearing (winter coats) or they don’t have any to wear,” Simpson says. “I figured it was best to err on the side of caution.” He got to work, talked to others involved in the GVHBA, and Coats for Kids was born. This year, the 15th annual Coats for Kids campaign kicks off on Nov. 15 and runs until Nov. 30. In addition to the GVHBA office, the public can drop off donations at 33 GVHBA member companies at 46 locations in 13 municipalities – including several Black Press community newspaper offices – throughout Metro Vancouver. “Last year the response to Coats for Kids was heartwarming as Lower Mainland residents donated more than 3,000 coats, scarves, gloves, blankets and new, unwrapped toys and gifts for distribution to children, teenagers and adults,” says GVHBA chairman Todd Senft. “I am delighted so many prominent members of our association are participating.” Both Senft and Simpson emphasize that any donation is good. New or gently used winter coats, scarves, gloves, toques, fleece or down vests, blankets, sweaters – any warm clothing is welcome, as well as unwrapped gifts and even monetary donations. All Coats for Kids donations go to the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau, an organization with many initiatives that help provide a brighter Christmas to local families in need. Every year, thousands of coats are collected along with other donations, and Simpson says

Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association marketing co-ordinator Christine Reid, left, and GVHBA vice-president of marketing and education Wendy McNeil prepare for the 15th annual Coats for Kids campaign. Martin Knowles photo

COATS FOR KIDS

he is constantly amazed by the generosity from those who donate. He notes that in past years, some GVHBA members have even gone out and purchased brand-new coats to donate – one member brought in a box of new coats last year. And the public is just as generous, Simpson says. “The public has opened their hearts and

their closets and have supported this in a huge way ... they’re the ones who make it happen,” he says. “There are a lot of people out there who struggle, and they do it very quietly and don’t ask for help. We want to make sure those people – and those people’s kids – are taken care of, and this way, it’s anonymous.” Visit www.gvhba.org for a full list of dropoff sites.

Home sales steady in Metro Van Local home sales have remained steady over the past four months, indicating stability in the local residential housing market, reports the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. “With the MLS (the industry’s listing service) sales-to-active-listing inventory ratio indicating a buyer’s market, properties appropriately priced are selling,” states a REBGV release. According to the MLS Housing Price Index, the benchmark price for all residential properties in Greater Vancouver over the past 12 months has increased by 4.6 per cent to $579,349 in October 2010 from $553,702 in October 2009. Since June, residential home prices in Metro Vancouver have remained relatively unchanged, declining by 0.2 per cent. “We’ve seen a lot more consistency and less volatility in recent months when it comes to both number of sales and pricing, although it’s important to remember that conditions often vary between communities and neighbourhoods,” says REBGV president Jake Moldowan. Residential property sales totalled 2,337 in October, a 5.3 per cent increase compared to September. While sales in October 2010 were down compared to sales in October of 2009, last month’s sales represent a 71.3 per cent increase over the 1,364 residential sales in October of 2008. “As we enter the final two months of the year, buyer demand is in closer alignment with supply than we’ve seen for most of 2010,” Moldowan says. “Those buying today recognize that they still have a chance to enter the market with near-record low interest rates, while gradual reductions in inventory have eased downward pressure on prices.” The benchmark price for detached homes increased by 6.3 per cent from October 2009 to $796,883, says the REBGV.

‘These are not cookie-cutter homes’

Cassia offers new homes in a great location Finding a new home in a vibrant community – in a quiet neighbourhood that is convenient to all amenities as well as central in Metro Vancouver – may seem like a dream to local homebuyers. But dreams can come true. Guildford Brook Estates Inc.’s Cassia, a distinctive collection of 60 garden flats and townhomes located at the foot of Burnaby Mountain, offers brand-new homes at affordable prices; one-bedroom homes start at $204,900. In this ideal location, Cassia is part of the energetic North Burnaby community, which offers a wide range of shops, schools – including the popular Burnaby Mountain university, SFU – restaurants, parks and recreation facilities. Burnaby Mountain offers kilometres of hiking and biking trails and a mountain bike park, while Kensington Park and Community Centre are just blocks away. Barnet Beach – Burnaby’s only salt water beach – is close by, and a myriad of shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities await, from the stores at Kensington Square to the many shops at Metropolis at Metrotown. “Our location sets us apart ... we’re right on the 135 bus route in North Burnaby, at the foot of Burnaby Mountain. There’s a

Guildford Brook Estates is building Cassia, a North Burnaby collection of 60 townhomes and garden flats. The new homes blend traditional charm with modern style in a location that is quiet, yet central in Metro Vancouver and close to several Burnaby amenities as well as shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities. Whether it’s enjoying the Heritage Carousel at the Burnaby Village Museum, dining at always-popular Anton’s in Burnaby Heights or attending the annual Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival, the city offers plenty of choices to its residents.

The homes are townhomes and flats, but not condos, even though there are some one-level plans, Lakos says. “There is no lobby entrance.

floorplans for the 60 homes. “These are not cookie-cutter homes ... (each floorplan) expresses a lot of personality. They’re all quite different,” she says. Blending traditional charm and contemporary style, the townhomes and flats at Cassia reflect a demand for quality and every modern convenience. Kitchens come with sleek, clean cabinetry in walnut or suede, polished quartz countertops, European tile backsplashes and stainless steel appliance packages. Bathrooms are calming, with sleek porcelain tiles, soaker tubs and modern polished chrome accents. An artfully designed garden and courtyard makes it easy for homeowners to enjoy their balconies and patios, which are positioned for privacy. Interested buyers are coming from all over the Lower Mainland, Lakos says, from Vancouver and Burnaby to Richmond and Surrey. “A lot of people coming in have grown up here,” she says, and notes that while those homebuyers may not be able to afford a single-detached home, they can likely find a new home they’ll love at Cassia. “This is a unique and affordable opportunity to live in North Burnaby in a new, contemporary home.” One-bedroom Cassia homes start from $204,900; two-bedroom, one-level homes start from $339,900; townhomes start from $409,900 and three-bedroom townhomes start from $449,900. There are also special promotions on to help eliminate the impact of the HST on homebuyers, Lakos says. Visit www.cassialiving.com for more information.

Choose between a fixed, a variable, and our Half & Half™ Rate – which gives you the advantages of both. Who’s the boss? You are. With the You’re the Boss™ Mortgage. To learn more go to www.coastcapitalsavings.com, call 1.877.517.7849 or drop by your local branch. Or if you prefer, a Mobile Mortgage Specialist can come to you. Simply go to our website or give us a call to arrange a visit.

Interest rate and approval based on risk profile. High ratio mortgages, non-residential mortgages and non-owner occupied properties are not eligible. Prepayment, reborrow and skip a payment rights are each subject to specific limitations, restrictions and conditions including minimum and maximum dollar amounts. The Half & Half™ Rate is a variable rate. When the Coast Capital Savings prime rate goes up or down, the Half & Half Rate goes up or down by one-half of the change in the prime rate. Visit your local branch for complete details.
