    And, for Mathman, it would be more affordable, since the price is listed in Canadian dollars!

    Does the Canadian government regulate how much property is owned by non-citizens the way Switzerland does?

    Mathman there's a way around if they have a rule about buy property. Give Lad the money and she can buy it for you :chorus:

    For that amount of square footage, that kitchen is pretty lame.

    This is what $18 million US Dollars buys you in La Jolla, CA. I've been inside, it's a cool house. If you click on the 3rd photo of the dining room, that floor actually turns around.

    Location, location, location.

    Should I take my $18,000,000, move to Vancouver and get a 7700 square-foot condo, or to California and get 10,000 square feet on the beach?

    Or...

    Should I stay home, buy a 12,000 square foot mansion, and save $17,000,000 dollars.

    decisions, decisions.

    Here's the most expensive home in my area. A bit of a difference, I'd say!

    Mathman unless you are planning to attend the Olympics and you love rain, and don't mind horrendous traffic problems and high prices for just about everything...stay home and save the $17,000,000 dollars!!!!!

    PS - The sun is actually making an appearance today. I've forgotten what it looks like.

    Probably because, around here, those outbuildings would be WAY more of a draw!

    They are there- look at the "photos" tab. Personally I hate the kitchen. A bright lime green floor? And I hate the long narrow "galley" style. Yuck. And I hope the glass windows are one-way in the bathroom, or the neighbours would get a nice show at night!

    Gorgeous views though!

    I already commented on that property and the lame kitchen (see post #5 above). The property that had no interior photos was the one Dutchherder posted (post #7).

    These are just condos in downtown Vancouver. Real Estate in West Vancouver and Vancouver Island is "out of this world." A lot of movie stars and entertainment stars from the states own property in and around Vancouver and on the Island.
