Well I'm terribly on the fence.
I've looked at quite a few places, mostly townhomes as they seem to be in my price range. However, I've also found that I can buy some semi-decent home homes without moving out to Chilliwack with Boone (thank god!!).
So I can get a pretty pimpin' townhouse, or I can buy a house and presumably get some more equity out of it due to it's growth (soil vs. strata).
Now a lot of these places are pretty old and I'd likely want to do some updating. Now I know it will vary from place to place, but if anyone here has some experience doing this I'd love to hear.
I'd be interested in the basic upgrades, how much do HW floors cost to put in, how much to finish off a room downstairs in a basement, etc.. I can likely get some help doing some of this stuff and would be more than happy to do the work myself and save on labor.
Kinda hard to guesstimate maybe? I don't know. I'm trying to get a better feel for what I'm getting myself into.
