Clay's Financial Details

Clay recently moved to Vancouver, where he rents an apartment in Chinatown and walks to the local retail store that he manages. He wants to own his home, but doesn't want to be 'house rich and cash poor'. 188 Keefer fits his needs perfectly - he has already saved enough for the 5 percent down payment and with his $44,000 annual salary, he can afford the monthly payments on a one bedroom suite.

  • Comparable Monthly Rent

Lily's Financial Details

Lily works from home as a graphic designer and earns $50,000 per year. Many of her clients are in the Chinatown area, so she's like to live in the neighbourhood and find a condo with enough room to run her home business. The one bedroom plus den suite at 188 Keefer gives her the extra space she needs while keeping her monthly mortgage payments roughly the same as the rent she currently pays.


  • Purchase price
  • 5% down-payment
  • Mortgage payment 1
  • $279,900 + GST
  • $13,995

Jan and Mark's Family Financial Details

Jan and Mark have one child. Currently, they both commute from their rental suite on the east side of Vancouver to their jobs in downtown Vancouver each day. A new two bedroom unit at 188 Keefer would suit their family well, and allow Jan to walk to work. With the support of their parents, they have enough for the down payment, and with an annual combined income of $70,000, the monthly mortgage payments are manageable.
