This one was spotted by Postmedia News. The old home on a large 33-by-136 lot in Dunbar was bought in 2015 by a student named Yu Lin for $2.5 million. The home was assessed at just over $3 million in 2018, but as of June 30, 2019, was valued at $2.527 million. The home was originally listed at just under $3 million; however, when there were no takers, realtor Layla Yang brought the price down to $1.888 million and there was a quick sale for $2.050 million on Sept. 30, 2019.

So the owner lost $450,000 over four years.

4. 3952 West 21st Ave., Vancouver

Vancouver Real Estate Flip Flops dug into this one to find a likely loss of hundreds of thousands for the developer. In May 2015, an old home on this standard-sized lot in Dunbar was bought for $2.055 million. Less than a year later, just before the market started to fall, it was sold for $2.768 million.

However, the developer who bought in 2016 tore the place down and set about building a 2,900-sq.-ft. luxury home on the lot. It was listed in April 2019 for $4.28 million and sold recently for $3.55 million. So, on paper, that’s a profit of $713,000. Then take away the transaction costs and there’s $614,000, minus demolition costs, permits, architect fees and building costs, and VREFF estimates the return was $118 a square foot. It costs roughly $300 a square foot to build from scratch in Vancouver.

Another Dunbar doozy here. Mortimer points out this 2,227-sq.-ft. home on a standard lot sold for $3.2 million in March 2017 (about nine months into the downturn). The home was assessed at $3.075 million on June 30, 2019, though that figure fell to $2.628 million during the most recent assessment. After sitting on the market for 70 days, the home sold for $2.408 million. So in 31 months, the owners lost $792,000 — that’s $25,500 a month (not factoring in the hefty realtor fees and legal costs).
