When we use the word “bargain” in relation to Burnaby real estate, don’t laugh.
There are a few out there based on a certain metric. This month’s roundups of Burnaby’s bargain listings by roomvu, are listed well-below government assessed value, most are under $1 million, and fresh on the market. It’s the cream of the crop of home deals.
How it works is the B.C. government analyzes and gives a price based on each property’s factors like size, layout, shape, age, neighbourhood, the condition of the property and more.
When listing prices appear lower than as compared to government value, these value-for-money homes set off alarm bells, demanding to be seen and bought.
