The first property is 1112 North 34th Street, Richmond VA, on the market for $130,000 ($65 per sqft)
The second property is 3043 Crown Street, Vancouver BC, on the market for $1,878,000 ($879 per sqft)
[hat-tip Ralph Cramdown for the idea for this particular comparison]
Yes, we know that Richmond VA isn’t Vancouver BC, but then $130,000 is a lot, lot, lot less than $1,878,000.
Ninety-three percent less, to be precise.
Buy 14 houses in Richmond for the price of the one in Vancouver, and still have change.
