There has been an increase in interest for Vancouver luxury real estate by foreign investors. In fact, research shows that approximately forty percent of the total investors in this market are not local residents of the city of Vancouver but come from abroad. Most oversea clients in this vibrant property market are based in the South-East Asia, Europe, Australia, the U.S as well as South America. Moreover, according to a survey conducted recently, Arabs from Tunisia, Egypt as well as Bahrain have also invested heavily in this market.
Although Chinese investors flood to purchase Vancouver luxury properties, top homes in this city have been scooped away by Iranian and American citizens. The glorious location of luxurious homes has been one of the reasons this Canadian city has witnessed an influx of investors from foreign lands. The homes are built in lush neighborhoods with top notch security, social facilities as well as various amenities.
The Vancouver luxury real estate market is always booming with business throughout the year with high rise buildings always coming up in the best areas of the city.

Vancouver Weather-Buying A Home in the Rain, Sun, and other weather conditions
Vancouver weather is a factor When buying a home, it can be easy to overlook year-around weather issues. You may think you are purchasing a home in a sunny area, but come to find there is always a heavy cloud cover. This is just one of a number of weather issues to consider when selecting your dream home.
If you must have a sun deck in the Vancouver area as part of your new home, you better make sure it is going to be sunny! Just because a general geographic area has a lot of sun doesn't mean your home will. Things to look for include fog and heavy cloud cover for a home in a valley. If the home is located on the side of a hill or valley, make sure you know when it will get sun and shade. Vancouver weather temperatures can be radically different depending upon the amount of sun you get.
When it rains, it really pours! One potential nasty surprise for new homeowners can be the condition of a neighborhood after it rains. Even an inch of rain can flood streets to the point that you can't drive at all. Make sure you stop by a gas station or local store to ask about flooding problems in the area.
I have been known to enjoy the beach and spending time on the water and perhaps you do as well. I am pretty sure neither of us would enjoy it in our house. Still, millions of people a year buy homes in flood plains without even knowing it. Eventually, this can lead to a disaster when heavy rains come and you find out the reason they call it a flood plain.
Unlike streets with bad drainage, floods are much more damaging. When a river overflows, flood levels are typically measured in feet. Can you image the effect on your home of a flood that reaches five feet in depth? Well, you probably always wanted to renovate the first floor of your home.
Mother nature has a way of doing whatever she wants. Make sure you avoid her grumpy spells by looking into the effect of Vancouver weather on your prospective dream home.

Please feel free to give me your thoughts on the Vancouver weather!
