There are many reasons why real estate buyers prefer to live and find their next home in Kitsilano. Yet, reasonable dollar per square foot for condos and townhouses, good schools, proximity to work, and short distance to all shops on 4th Ave, and beautiful scenery at the Kits Beach and parks.

Speaking of Kits beach, there are many Kitsilano condo apartments for sale with water views and views of north shore mountains which is irritable.

Things I love about Kitsilano:

  • The great energy of Kits Beach in every season. Walkers, joggers, stroller pushers, dog runners. It’s truly full of story in winter or summer touristy days.
  • Kitsilano Showboat. This is a summer event that offers great entertainment.
  • Kits pool. WOW! That one heck of a pool and scenery.
  • Shopping on 4th. On 4th Ave shopping, you’d find all café’s, restaurants, retail shops and juice bars. Many selections and they are all are great at their offer.
  • Yew St. restaurants and shops. Right by the Kits beach, on Yew St, there are many top places to dine.

What about investment point? Is real estate growing in value in Kitsilano?

We all heard real estate is about location! Location! Location! And Kitsilano real estate is one of the best in both whether finding a dream home to live in combine with one of the best investments. Keep in mind, investment depends on the product and the amount of $ an investor pays. There are some great development in Kits with newer homes and yet, there are many character homes that are characteristic of this beautiful neighborhood.

But most of all, the latest news is about the Sky train and its extension. We have the firm approval from the city and the build is under way for Arbutus sky train station. But that doesn’t end there, which making Arbutus in KItsilano a major station for commute, the city is negotiating with indigenous lands to continue the sky train line west to UBC.

This is an important factor for any investor who is buying a real estate in Kitsilano. Whether it is a condo for sale or a single family house for sale in Kitsilano, it certainly appreciates in value when the sub-area becomes one of the major commute route to UBC to East. For more info check out
