"Love Thy Neighbour" - New Trends in Real Estate Seminar

Announcing the “Love Thy Neighbor Real Estate Seminar” – Presenting New Strategies for Optimizing Land Values in Vancouver, BC

Learn essential insights into how to jointly market properties to Developers and Builders


Vancouver, BC – Feb 26, 2014 – How can real estate sellers take advantage of the densification trend in Vancouver, BC? By looking to their neighbors’ properties when listing their own for sale. This Spring might be the best time to jointly list your property with your neighbor’s to obtain the optimal sales price. The upcoming “Love Thy Neighbor” seminar will provide critical steps to enable attendees to take advantage of this new listing trend.


As the demand for mid-rise housing continues throughout Vancouver, developers and builders find themselves continually challenged in finding large enough lots to build on within city limits for low-rise, mid-rise and small to medium multi-house dwellings. If a neighboring property is being listed at the same time as your property, there are techniques for bundling these two listings to achieve increased real estate values for the two properties.


“The lack of land and the desire for people to live in Vancouver has made densification the only choice for builders in Metro Vancouver,” says Geraldine Santiago, REMAX Realtor and published author.”If you have a property, especially along a transit corridor, and your neighbor is considering selling at the same time, you are in a unique position to bundle your properties to attain the highest property value. My team of experts have the tips, techniques and suggestions for leveraging this opportunity.”


Capacity within Metro Vancouver will continue to grow with the present population of the area estimated at 2.3 million and it is expected to increase by almost 50 percent to 3.4 million by 2041.  Without densification and the building of more laneway homes, in-fill, coach houses, duplex and triplexes, builders and developers will not be able to meet demand.


Do you know how to approach your neighbor about co-listing your properties? Are you aware of your area’s zoning options? Do you know how to partner with your listing agent to maximize your property’s value? Questions like these will be answered at this innovative seminar.




“My team and I ave been listing West side real estate in Vancouver for over 11 years,” says Ms. Santiago, “and now is one of the best times to co-list and bundle properties for sale. Learn the best practices for successfully taking advantage of this new trend at our upcoming seminar.”
