TODAY AND TOMORROW ONLY!
BC Real Estate Convention 2012 helps buyers by putting resources under one roof!
Last year was an exciting one for real estate buyers and homeowners in B.C. As one of the most attractive urban
realms in the country, Vancouver is becoming a top location for potential investors, both local and international.
The 8th annual BC Real Estate Convention is returning on March 5th and 6th, at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
Although 2011 was a challenging year for real estate investors around the world, the outlook in British Columbia
remains positive. Low mortgage rates, a strong currency, and a relatively stable economy continue to draw many
new homebuyers to the province.
Around the world, B.C. is developing a reputation as a place of burgeoning, multicultural communities and
expansive, natural wonders. For many, residential property in Vancouver remains a top global real estate
investment. At the same time, some of the province's most promising markets - from Surrey to Kamloops - are
found just outside the city.
For many, the ideal urban lifestyle has changed from the traditional dream of owning a 'house with a white picket
fence' in the big city to a vision of trendy urban living. Accompanying the desire to live in culturally rich Downtown
Vancouver and nearby urban centres, condominiums have become a desired investment for many buyers,
especially younger ones.
As the population grows, triggered by immigration and people coming from other provinces, demand for higher-
efficiency, more sustainable and multi-utility structures is expected to increase at a rapid rate in the coming years.
This will also drive the anticipated redevelopment of existing older, lower height and less energy-efficient condos.
It is important to recognize the increased functional utility of the newer condominiums as well as the retrofitted
Although 2011 saw a sharp increase in Vancouver's real estate prices, making the city's housing market one of
the least affordable in the world, many people still manage to make their home ownership dream a reality.
Don't be put off by fear that owning a home in Vancouver is out of reach for you. The idea is to become active in the
market, find your resources and start building equity today.
The BC Real Estate Convention is proud to host this year's real estate trade show for both the public and
professionals, bringing all the knowledge and resources you need, to get a jump start in the BC Real Estate
market. With many of the industry's insiders, including top realtors, developers, investment banks and mortgage
advisory services brought together for you under a single roof, you will be equipped with all the resources you
need to take your first step into the Vancouver real estate industry.
You can also learn more about the industry itself, and what the trends are in residential, condominium, multi-residential and commercial properties. The show's goal is to bring together a range of different enterprises -from
developers to financial institutions - to help you find all the people you need in a single convenient location.
The show has free admission and offers free seminars.
With continuing support from The Vancouver Sun, The Province, News 1130 Radio, Citytv & Omni Diversity
Television, Home owner Protection Office, Bosa Properties Inc and Polygon Realty Ltd., the 8th BC Real Estate
Convention, taking place Monday and Tuesday at the Vancouver Convention Centre is a once-a-year event you
