The Olympic Village neighbourhood — part of Southeast False Creek — has emerged as one of the more scenic and central spots for a patio beverage or waterfront view, with a promenade that feels like New York’s High Line. Myfanwy MacLeod’s gigantic sparrow sculptures in the Plaza have become a favourite photo op. Small retailers are adding to the texture, with the popular Earnest Ice Cream now at 2nd and Quebec. And condo and retail development is nowhere near complete. Empty city-owned land to the west, another 15 acres, will add to the density and livability of the area once it’s developed.
Combining beautiful state of the art residential and commercial buildings, parks, craft breweries and restaurants, it’s no wonder this exceptional neighbourhood is continuously one of the most coveted to live and work in. Enjoyed by many are the remarkable views of the city’s downtown skyline, the waters of False Creek and the North Shore Mountains. It has also been designed to be Canada’s first LEED Gold community adhering to its green building strategies creating healthier indoor environments, less harmful products, decreased water consumption and energy conservation.
For people looking to take out a mortgage in Olympic Village, the best option for them to get the most for their money is to work with a mortgage broker. Working with a team of brokers means that the client has a team of professionals in the industry to advise on all of the current mortgage products as well as any incentive programs that the customer might qualify for. They personalize the mortgage product to fit the client’s need, and work with them step-by-step to make sure that the client has a thorough understanding of the mortgage process.
Best of all, the broker will do all of the shopping around for the client. They work with multiple banks and lenders across the industry. They compare and contrast all of the different products that are available as well as the rates and incentives that are being offered to take all the guesswork out of the mortgage process to ensure that customers not only get qualified, but are qualified at the best rates and with the best product to fit their mortgage needs.BOOK FREE CONSULTATION
