Buying made easy

Three simple steps to success

S

hopping for a home online is a great way to narrow your search, but there’s nothing like visiting the sites, models and sales offices to get down to the nitty-gritty. Before you venture out, here are some pointers: First, be clear about what you want and expect in a new home and in your builder. Remember, the range of prices in the new-home market generally reflects differences in location, features and home styles. There’s no magic involved. If a builder’s pricing seems out of whack with others in the area, ask for an explanation. Higher prices could mean better quality materials, finishings, features and service. Make sure that the price you are paying will deliver the quality you want. Second, understand exactly what is included with the home you are buying and what is optional. Ask the sales representative to show you samples, and request a “spec” sheet that clearly lists what is included, as well as any upgrade options. Third, evaluate any promises that have been made during your visit. Is the builder prepared to put them in writing? Hearsay comments should not be included as part of your evaluation process. Sit down with your sales representative, ask questions and discuss your Agreement of Purchase and Sale in detail – then take it to a lawyer before it’s finalized.

Getting a jump on spring

By calendar if not by temperature, this time of year signals change and opportunity

T

he cover date of this issue is March 22 – a couple weeks into Daylight Savings Time and a few days after the official start of spring – and Mother Nature has already teased us with a sign of warmer things to come. Indeed, spring is always busy season in the housing market, and this year, despite some recent “cooling” in some areas and housing types, should be no different. Fair weather and still-favourable mortgage rates should point to the sales pace continuing in the coming weeks and months. Need proof? Take advantage of the nicer weather and get out there and visit some new-home sales centres and model homes. A combination of factors – including land availability and affordability – is restricting supply of lowrise homes, in particular, at the moment. You may be surprised at just how quickly new developments are snapped up by homebuyers. We’re also betting you’ll be impressed by how new-home builders in the Lower Mainland and elsewhere are responding to such challenges, by offering more variety of home options. Gone are the days when the main choices were simply lowrise and highrise. Today’s buyers want variety – townhomes, semis, singles, freehold and condominium ownership – and developers are delivering in spades.

Lift

Get more on the Mountain by Susan M Boyce

P

ssst. Here’s a hot tip about a cool property. Lift has just released a very limited selection of spectacular, twolevel townhomes at UniverCity, and eager buyers are responding enthusiastically. “These are the only brand new townhomes currently available on the mountain,” says marketing director Jeanette Chaput, adding it’s taken less than a month for half the homes in this exclusive release to be sold. “People love the size of the floorplans – up to 1,350 sq. ft. – and having windows on both sides so you get lots of natural light as well as cross ventilation in the summer.” Plus, there’s Lift’s outdoor spaces – big, bright, outdoor spaces. “Many buyers have told us it was Lift’s private, 450-sq.-ft. rooftop deck that scored highest on their Wow Factor list,” Jeanette says. “People have such great ideas about what they’re going to do with them now that the warm weather is almost here – lawn furniture, a fire pit, plants, and of course, entertaining and barbecuing.” “Three-bedroom homes are actually a new product for SFU and are proving extremely popular with families who already live on the mountain, are now having a second child and have simply outgrown their original two-bedroom home,” Jeanette says. “Lift gives them space for kids to play outside, and it’s perfect for people with pets, too.”

Urban-savvy living Inside, Lift has a distinct emphasis on luxury: in-floor radiant heating, marble bathroom counters, nine-ft. ceilings, and gas hookups for every balcony. Kitchens, Jeanette says, have been described as awesome, a foodie’s dream and outrageously beautiful. And in sync with the casual West Coast lifestyle, the integrated counter/eating bar for causal dining is more than a convenience, it’s a social hub – whether that’s a romantic lunch for two or a party with all their friends. Exceptional lifestyle Throughout the ages, there’s been an allure that’s unique to living on a university campus, and Lift is no exception. It’s more than the invigorating ambiance of being at a centre of learning – it’s convenience to everything. From here, homeowners will be able

People love the size of the floorplans and having windows on both sides so you get lots of natural light as well as cross ventilation in the summer. Jeanette Chaput

to simply walk to the diverse range of amenities that define SFU – tennis courts, libraries, the year-round pool, as well as a state-of-the-art daycare centre and new elementary school. “And now we’ve got Nester’s Market, more restaurants and a pub open in the village centre, you really have absolutely everything you need right at home,” Jeanette says. And if you’re thinking this is going to cost a bundle, think again. “One of our early buyers told us he and his wife had originally thought they’d have to settle for a two-bedroom,” Jeanette says. “When they found out they were able to afford a three-bedroom, they were ecstatic because it gave them a home they could grow into rather than one they’d grow out of in a few years. They’re already talking about starting a family here.” Don’t miss out Lift’s presentation centre and display are open noon to 5 p.m. daily except Fridays at 9055 University High St. (just across the street from Nester’s Market). Two-level garden homes from $418,800. Hurry, because only a few home opportunities remain in this release. For more information, visit liveatlift.ca or call 604.320.3386.

FLOORPLANS

GET SMART New generation of homes unleashes masters-on-the-main and mortgage helpers by Janine Mackie

Open-concept? A basement rec-room? Enough

bedrooms for all the kids upstairs? What about the piano, where will it go? While finding the perfect floorplan for many families is more of an aspiration than reality, there’s new hope to this eminent quest. Designers, developers and marketing experts are teaming together in Greater Vancouver with a common goal to create new homes that have “real life” factored into them. “Buyers today want a more open, modern floorplan,” says

3/19/13 5:16:54 PM


“I usually look at a floorplan and see if it’s functional and has a nice flow” Arthur Simon , Cadence Sales Manager

Cadence’s six-bedroom floorplan is well designed for families plus offers two-bedroom mortgage helper.

Arthur Simon, a Surrey realtor with Royal LePage. “I encourage homebuyers to look for homes that meet their specific family needs, to think about the future and whether they tend to have a casual or more formal approach to entertaining.” Based on his experience selling homes and raising his own four kids, Simon recently worked alongside developer The Maskeen Group to fine-tune a couple six-bedroom floorplans for their new built-green certified community called CADENCE on 184A St. in Cloverdale. “I usually look at a floorplan and see if it’s functional and has a nice flow,” explains Simon. “Simplicity is important, with minimal hallways and corridors which really aren’t usable living space. Rooms should also be easily accessible.”

* FIRST IMPRESSION: ENTRY PROVIDES PLENTY OF SPACE TO UNLOAD GROCERIES OR WELCOME GUESTS

Feedback has been outstanding, with the 3,691-sq.-ft. “Braemore” floorplan at Cadence especially well received. From the front

044-045-046-047 Showhome What makes a good floorplan-WK.indd 45

porch the entrance creates a clear sense of arrival. Unlike garage-prominent homes, this floorplan parks cars in back, and chooses rather to make a great first impression with a foyer that’s large enough to remove and store coats with plenty of elbow room to spare. The home evokes an open and welcoming feel achieved by removing interior doors and walls, integrating columns and boosting ceiling heights to 10 ft! When assessing an entry plan, it’s important to also imagine yourself hosting a party and deciding where you’ll eat dinner, where the kids will study without being distracted by the TV and how furniture will be arranged in each room. “I loved it from the very first moment my eyes saw the floorplan,” says an enthusiastic Carol Gibson who was among the first to buy a home at Cadence, and will be moving in this April. While selling a townhome and moving into a six-bedroom detached single-family home seems more of a step-up in the world of real estate, Gibson describes this strategic housing move as “downsizing.” A quick explanation reveals she’s joining the ranks of other homebuyers who are pooling funds with family members to co-own a home. Her three kids are now grown with families of their own, yet when the opportunity presented itself to share an abode with her son and his family, the numbers just made sense. For over a year, they searched for a home with a suite so that Gibson could live independently, yet also be active in her grandchildren’s lives. Searching for suited homes on MLS proved near impossible, and those suites they did view were dark and poorly designed. An act of serendipity, Gibson found herself overseeing the printing of promotional material for a new home development in Surrey. On paper it looked like everything she’d been searching for. There were four bedrooms upstairs, a well-planned main floor with a den to house the family’s heirloom piano and a fully-finished lower level with legal two-bedroom self-contained suite and playroom. “Not everyone can visualize from a floorplan, so I took my son and his family and visited the new furnished showhome,” says Gibson. “That’s when the floorplan really came to life. “

*OPENCONCEPT: PROMOTESFAMILYINTERACTION ANDGREATWHENENTERTAINING Right away, the parents could visualize their kids growing up with their own bedrooms, as well as themselves unwinding in the sumptuous adult retreat complete with ensuite, window-seat and walk-in closet. Being a teacher, Gibson’s daughter-in-law could imagine herself marking papers in the den and everyone gathering in the kitchen, defined by a large quartz-top island and accentuated with glass backsplash and stunning stainless steel appliances. The culinary space emanates with practicality and features a walk-in pantry with solid wood built-in shelves, as well as a mudroom off the double garage complete with coat closet and full-size washer and dryer. The home packs a lot of extras into the plan as well, boasting an outdoor living area with fireplace, full wet bar, main floor powder room and upstairs loft. Canada’s Baby Boomers entering their golden years also have their unique ideas of what makes a house a home. Real estate developers like Vesta Properties in the Fraser Valley are in tune with this market and have made it a priority to translate wish lists into tangible floorplans. “There has been increasing demand for master-on-main plans from active mature couples, older families where their children have left the nest, and retirees that want to downsize their home but not their lifestyle,” explains Curt Woodhall, who heads up Vesta’s marketing department. “They want to move into a new home with less maintenance and the latest in design and interior finishing, but still want to be close to the best amenities.”

*VANTAGEDELIVERSMAINFLOORBEDROOMS ANDWELLDEFINEDSPACES Vesta responded to this segment of the population by creating a signature 1,816-sq.-ft. two-bedroom “E-PLAN” for homebuyers at its Vantage townhome community, perched above the picturesque Willow’s Nine Course at the Surrey Golf Club. The kitchen is located just off the entrance, making grocery day a breeze, and the master-bedroom suite is on the first level. The top floor can be closed off and used as a rancher, or easily accommodate out-of-town guests. “I love how open the floorplan is,” says interior designer Carolyn Stewart of Concept to Design who styled the display home. “The empty nester may be downsizing, but with a modern floorplan, they may feel they have more space than their previous traditional house. Also, having the master bedroom accessible from the open area and facing out to the golf course is impressive and lets the feeling be consistent throughout.” Sales have been strong at Vantage with less than 10 of these E-Plans left. Those who’ve bought here love the spacious master bedrooms measuring 12-by-14 ft., having a double-car garage, small fenced, and the upscale finishes like granite countertops and Carrara interior doors. Visit these refined showhomes to see how floorplans come to life! CADENCE is open daily from 1 to 5 p.m. daily (except Fridays), at 5920 184th St. in Surrey, and VANTAGE is open Saturday through Wednesday from 1 to 5 p.m. at #8 – 7848 170 St. in Surrey.

Q&A

Adventures in downsizing

Q&A

MARY ANNE PICK by SUSAN M BOYCE DOWNSIZING. IT’S A WORD LADEN WITH EMOTION,

a word that’s been known to strike terror into the hearts of the most stalwart house owner. How will I fit my stuff into my new place? Am I giving up my freedom moving to a strata? Where do I start? Help! This issue, New Home Guide talks with Mary Anne Pick, founder of Wings of Change, a company specializing in transforming the pain and mystery of downsizing into a joyful, liberating adventure. Q: Many people think of downsizing as an ordeal, but you see it as an exciting. life-changing opportunity. How do you get your clients to change their perception? A: It’s amazing how few people actually think about how they want their lives to be for the next year, five years or 25 years. They get into a routine they don’t question – even when that routine is just dragging them down. Here’s an example I see all the time. Most people love to travel – especially active, young seniors. But they often end up spending all their weekends fi xing and maintaining stuff around the house. I suggest they write down how they’d actually like to live their lives if someone else, like a strata, took care of all those day-to-day details, and it’s like a light goes on. Suddenly they see a world of new opportunities. Q: It’s no secret most of us are hoarders to some degree. How do you help people get rid of the things they believe they can’t live without? A: It’s about taking baby steps in a logical order. If you were

going to learn French cooking, you wouldn’t start with the most difficult Cordon Bleu recipe you could fi nd. So I tell my clients we’re going to start with something easy – which is usually their closets. People can cram an amazing amount of stuff that has absolutely no use or value into their closets – like that basket of fun but silly gifts they got at their 50th birthday party. One trick I use frequently is getting people to do a minimodeling session with all the clothes they “just can’t part with.” When people see themselves in a baggy, old sweater with holes in the elbows, they’ll usually start laughing. And once you bring laughter into the process, it makes it so much easier to let go of unnecessary or no longer useful items.

ONE OF THE NICEST THINGS YOU CAN DO FOR YOURSELF WHEN YOU DOWNSIZE IS TO GET NEW LINENS. Mary Anne Pick

Q: For many people, the fi rst step in downsizing is to move from the single-family home where they raised their family to a townhouse. But that often brings a fear they’re also giving up a degree of control. What do you see as the major advantages of strata living? A: The most obvious one is being able to enjoy a lock ’n’ leave lifestyle. You want to go away for the weekend or the winter? No problem. Someone will be there to look after the gardening and gutters.

There’s also a huge social component. When you live in a house, you often barely know the people who live four or five doors down. In a strata, you’ve got great opportunities to meet people, although if you choose to be more private, there’s no one knocking on your door. I’ve lived in a strata community for a long time. Every year, we have three or four social events that the social committee pays for through our bottle recycling program. We also have an annual block party that’s a fundraiser for the Food Bank. We sell tickets, local merchants donate prizes and everyone has a great time. We usually raise $4,000 to $5,000 every year, and most people bring donations of non-perishable foods as well. Q: Can you give us a few suggestions for simple ways to personalize a new, downsized home? A: Accessories are always good – a cool area rug, colourful throw cushions, or original artwork are all great ways to express your personal style. And one of the nicest things you can do for yourself when you downsize is to buy new linens. Get everything from sheets and pillows to duvets and towels. It’s an inexpensive way to create a whole new feeling about the place you call home. I also take my clients’ old linens to a local women’s shelter – it’s good karma and good recycling.

04

Q: What was one of your most challenging downsizes? A: I was working with a couple who had a large, very lovely home. But they had so much stuff, the whole house felt like it was closing in on them. I started by giving them a homework assignment to look at every book on their 12 bookcases and make a decision about whether to keep it or not. Three days later, they called me. They were ecstatic because they’d culled more than a dozen boxes of books and reclaimed the space of four bookshelves. Next we went to work on their enormous collection of knick-knacks. We divided them into piles with different themes and suddenly my clients were able to see the difference between $700 treasures and $7 trinkets that should really just go directly to the thrift shop. And since we’d already gotten rid of four bookshelves, we had space for a beautiful display cabinet with backlighting to showcase the items that were worth keeping. The result was stunning.

01 Edgewater in South Surrey is one of a growing number of residences designed specifically with downsizers in mind. 02 Downsizing to a strata home opens new options for carefree living. 03 Having fun is a crucial part of making downsizing something to look for rather than something to avoid. 04 Mary Anne Pick specializes in helping seniors discover new lifestyle options.

Mary Anne draws on her many years of experience in real estate marketing and interior design to help downsizers of all ages create a dynamic, new lifestyle. Her motto is: if nothing ever changed, there would be no butterflies. For more information visit wingsofchange.biz

Burleigh Walk

Where quality construction meets quality of life When

it

comes

to

condominiums, the quality of the materials and building design really matter. The last thing a buyer wants is expensive repairs in the first few years of their mortgage. It’s that quality that makes Unimet’s Burleigh Walk, an affordable new project in Port Coquitlam, stand out from its competitors. Now selling the first phase of the two-phase, 115-unit development, Unimet’s four-story wood-frame building with 55 homes promises security from worry at a competitive price. “At this price there are no competitors using the high quality of materials we used,” says project sales manager Cam York. Prices range from $209,000 for a one bedroom to $389,000, and there are two bedroom/two baths to be had for $279,000. It’s a good fit for first-time buyers, but it also suits empty-nesters who want to downsize and be conveniently located. The building is clad in concrete composite siding, a hearty construction material that looks great and works hard. It has a 50-year warranty. “We took a torch to the siding,” says York. “It won’t burn.” Leaking also won’t be a problem, he says, adding they vigorously pressure tested the windows. Burleigh Walk is at 2623 Burleigh Dr., an area transitioning from commercial to residential. Lougheed Hwy is two minutes away by car making it easy to get on the freeway. But it is also just a hop, skip and jump to lovely walking or cycling trails in green belts along the Coquitlam River.

“I guess you could call it gentrification,” says York, adding they put a lot of resources into restoring the creek. The landscaping of this project is particularly noteworthy. Helped by skilled riparian consultants, Unimet beautifully restored the banks and flow of Maple Creek to promote salmon and trout spawning again. Invasive vegetation that choked the water, debris and a sewer line have all been replaced with fresh gravel and supportive plant species. Among the existing cedars and newly planted deciduous plants, a wetland pond adds to the serenity of the landscaping. Unimet has created a sustainable system in which the rainwater on the property is collected and directed to the pond where specially selected vegetation will supply nutrients to the water which in turn will feed the fish and other aquatic life. Eventually the two low-rise buildings will wrap around this serene courtyard. Inside, each bright, open-concept unit boasts wood-laminate flooring and stainless steel LG kitchen appliances, front loading washer and dryer and a Broan hood fan. Large kitchen islands have composite quartzite countertops. The deep soaker tubs feature large waterfall-style tiles and euphoria rain showers. The faucets in both bath and kitchen are made by Grohe in Germany. The display suite is open now. For more information, visit burleighwalk.com

Making a move? HOW TO FIND YOUR HOT SPOT LOCATION IS A CRITICAL FACTOR. A HOME THAT IS EVERYTHING

you need but in the wrong location is probably not the right home for you.

CANADA MORTGAGE AND HOUSING CORP. SUGGESTS SOME THINGS TO CONSIDER ABOUT LOCATION: ›› Do you want to live in a city, a town or in the countryside? ›› How easy will it be to get to where you work? How much will the commuting cost? ›› Where will your children go to school? How will they get there? ›› Do you need a safe walking area, or recreational facility, such as a park, nearby? ›› How close would you like to be to family and friends? ›› How important is sustainability to you?

A “sustainable” neighbourhood is one that meets your needs while protecting the environment. Homes in a sustainable neighbourhood are located near shops, schools, recreation, work and other daily destinations. This helps reduce driving costs and lets residents enjoy the health benefits of walking and cycling. Land and services, like roads, are used efficiently. Sustainable neighbourhoods also feature a choice of homes that are affordable. IN YOUR SEARCH FOR A SUSTAINABLE NEIGHBOURHOOD, HERE ARE SOME QUESTIONS TO ASK:

EASY TRANSPORTATION ›› Are stores, schools, recreation facilities, restaurants, and health services within walking or cycling distance? ›› Will your children need to take a bus to school? Can they walk to the park? Can you do most of your shopping without a car? ›› Are there nearby bus stops and cycling lanes? How long is the bus ride to work or school? Can you safely ride your bike there? SIZE OF HOME AND FEATURES ›› Are the homes compact with shared walls to reduce heating costs? ›› Are homes reasonably sized with lots that require minimal upkeep? ›› Are there different dwelling types (such as single-detached, semi-detached, townhouse and condominiums) in the neighbourhood? ›› Are the lots modestly sized? Roadways narrow? Driveways/parking areas small? ›› Do natural drain ways lead to streams and storm-water ponds or park lands? Is there native vegetation and streams with woodland edges?

A “sustainable” neighbourhood is one that meets your needs while protecting the environment. Homes in a sustainable neighbourhood are located near shops, schools, recreation, work and other daily destinations.

LOOK AND FEEL ›› Do the buildings have a friendly face to the street? Are the community centres, shops and meeting places welcoming? ›› Are there trees lining the street? ›› Do you find the homes interesting to look at? ›› Do the building sizes feel comfortable to you? ›› Are the roads easy to walk along or cross? SAFETY ›› Do the homes have “eyes on the street”? (In other words, are there people around who might watch out for you? Is there somewhere to go in an emergency?) ›› Is there adequate street lighting? ›› Are there safe places for children to play? ›› Are the streets safe for cyclists and pedestrians? ›› Is traffic slow moving and light? As Canada’s national housing agency, CMHC draws on more than 65 years of experience to help Canadians access a variety of high-quality, environmentally sustainable and affordable homes. CMHC also provides reliable, impartial and up-to-date housing market reports, analysis and knowledge to support and assist consumers and the housing industry in making informed decisions.
