  • BT | A | Works » The $80,000 Line: Single Family Housing Values in the City of Vancouver circa 1979
    data guru in the City of Vancouver s Housing Centre Before the days of Excel and ArcGIS Mr Raynor mapped these Single Family Home values by hand For the benefit of our readers when one uses the Bank of Canada Inflation Calculator to adjust values to 2011 dollars the map scales would be 117 000 for a house worth 40 000 in 1979 and 876 000 for a house worth 300 000 in 1979 Incidentally a house valued at 80 000 in 1979 would be worth 234 000 in 2011 dollars This post also includes Raynor s observations and analysis which accompanied the map and was published in a City of Vancouver Quarterly Review in July 1979 Interestingly as Raynor ends his piece with the observation that improvements on the average largely defined as buildings on a property accounted for 46 percent of total values in 1979 this percentage dwindles to less than 20 percent by 2011 0 COMMENTS Comments are closed RSS Subscribe ARTICLE CATEGORIES ALL 72 Data Desk 47 Research Papers 33 Observations 37 A Look Back 8 Media 25 Public Programming 7 Search Bing Thom Architects BTArchitects Join the conversation Data Desk March 21 2013 BTAworks Foreign

    or erroneous zoning and property data that need to be updated or edited within the Open data Dataset rather than development potential and highlight some of the data editing that is required in the usage of some datasets in the Catalogue Before discussing values this first observation of this map begins with the distribution of RS zoning as it largely corresponds with the pre consolidation 1929 boundaries of the municipalities of Point Grey and South Vancouver Prior to 1929 Vancouver consisted of three separate municipalities Point Grey South Vancouver and Vancouver With the exception of a section of Vancouver east of Victoria Drive there is little to no RS zoning within the boundaries of pre 1929 Vancouver Instead RS zoning dominates the former pre 1929 municipalities of Point Grey and South Vancouver Within the distribution of property values a few patterns emerge In the 2011 assessment there were no single family homes in Vancouver that were worth less than 500 000 At the same time the overwhelming majority of homes west of Main were worth over a million dollars Admittedly this line is Ontario Street but Main Street is the closest arterial With some very small pockets of sub 1 000 000 homes in Marpole and minute isolated cases any single family home west of Main Street was worth over a million dollars Conversely homes east of Main Street were largely under 1 000 000 While there were homes over 1 000 000 of which were concentrated in the far southeast corner of the City there was a much more diverse collection of homes under 1 000 000 in areas east of Main Street In all likelihood there will be more homes worth a million dollars in the 2012 Assessment east of Main but one of the surprising patterns in
