Vancouver first-time buyers overcome long odds

Windsor posts highest home price index hike
Windsor, Ontario and Halifax, Nova Scotia posted the highest year-over-year increase in the home price index in October, rising 9.8 per cent and 8.3 per cent, respectively, from October 2018.



Mobile condo sales office rolls to buyers
Developer Trillium Projects and GN Holdings Ltd. have packed the pre-sales centre for the new Ella condominium project in Vancouver into a truck that can roll right up to a potential buyer’s home.
