Should You Rent From an Individual Renting Their Apartment as a 2010 Rental Suite?

You can either rent a home or apartment suite from an individual or a Vancouver 2010 rental property management team. Both have advantages and disadvantages, but you must do your research into location, size, duration and booking reservations online.There are advantages and disadvantages to both scenarios when it comes to deciding on which Vancouver Olympic 2010 rental accommodation to choose between. There are numerous online websites for rent 2010 Rentals right now and they seem to be blossoming as we approach the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games. So, as a person or party looking to rent a 2010 furnished suite in Vancouver, which accommodation listings should you look at? Renting from an individual who has put their apartment or home for rent for the 2010 Olympics is an option. By choosing a rent Vancouver 2010 furnished rental from an individual, you may be getting a better deal for the same unit as there are no overhead charges for the home owner. In addition, individual homeowners are more personable and less business oriented, allowing you, as a visitor, to truly experience who and what a Vancouverite is. There may be more room for negotiations on pricing for furnished 2010 Vancouver rental apartments, suites and homes from individual homeowners too and it is a direct negotiation with no third party property management company involved in the working of the deal. Some of the drawbacks of renting a furnished 2010 suite for the Vancouver Olympic Winter Games is that you may not know what you’re getting unless you are willing to fly to Vancouver prior to the Olympics to see the specific suite for rent. The furnished accommodations for rent 2010 Winter Olympics may be entirely different from what you envisioned. In addition, there are some problems with 2010 rental scams and fraud related furnished 2010 rental apartment listings online. Many individuals will ask for a larger deposit as well.

Scott, who was born and raised in the neighbourhood – at Seventh and Columbia- knows the area as well as an auctioneering block. “as kids we used to pay in the water in False Creek. It was all industrial,” he recalls.

In two years, the area known as Southeast False Creek will become the Vancouver Olympic Athlete’s Village, providing accommodation for 2,800 Olympic athletes, coaches, officials before being converted into a model sustainable community called Millennium water in Vancouver.

Millennium Water South False Creek real estate Vancouver development for 2010 Olympic Housing and residential master-planned community by Arthur Erikson.

“The rest of the world is looking at what Vancouver’s doing here,” says Scott. “The whole space between the bridge and Science World, from Second Avenue to the water – it’s amazing what’g going on. It’s the quality of what’s being built there and the balance of what’s on the site – a school, community centre, parks, amenities. Thee’ll be limited traffic, lots of bike routes, walking paths, and an electric tram in Millennium Water. It’s all really designed for people.

“You could live in the area without a car. You can easily get to sports or cultural events, art galleries or restaurants by a boat ride across False Creek or walk around the seawall.

Millennium Water, situated on the last remaining tract of undeveloped waterfront land near downtown Vancouver, includes approximately 25 acres of former industrial land once used for sawmills, foundries, shipbuilding, metalworking and salt distribution. In fact, the heritage building, the Domtar Saltbox, has been shored up and designated for public use on the site.

When completed, the Millennium Water neighbourhood will comprise of approximately 1,100 residential units – 730 condominiums and townhomes, 120 Millennium Water units of modest market housing and 250 units of affordable housing. It will establish a new standard for sustainable development in North America, with green buildings that use less energy, are based on renewable resources and help protect against the environment. For example, the area will be heated by waste thermal energy from filtered wastewater. Fifty per cent of the roofs will be green.

Millennium Water is developed by Millennium Southeast False Creek Properties Ltd., part of the Millennium Group of Companies, selected by the City of Vancouver to develop this real estate project property.

Construction of Millennium Water will continue up to and beyond the Olympic Games. “We hosted Expo ’86 and that’s when we handed out our business card to the world… and the world kept it. I don’t think we, as Vancouverites, understand the potential impact of what is likely going to be the single largest Vancouver world positioning event of our lifetime,” says Bob Rennie, principal of REnnie Marketing Systems.

Millennium Water Village Condos Go On Sale

For the past six nights, Chris Shin has camped in his car; holding a place for a realtor who will be among the first to purchase part of Vancouver’s Olympic Village. The 1,100 unit 16 building Millennium Water condominium project in Southeast False Creek goes on sale to the public at 4pm today. Suites range from $450,000 to $3.5 million. It will be home to 2,800 athletes and official during the 2010 Games.

“It’s the first new real estate community on the West Side of Vancouver that we’ve seen in a long time,” said Bob Rennie, marketing realtor for the real estate development. Yesterday and Tuesday, those involved with the development were given first crack at 100 of the 302 units that will be sold to the public in the first phase of the property development known as Millennium Water False Creek.

By yesterday afternoon about 55 people waited in a lineup that stretched for about half a block outside the real estate project’s presentation centre in the 200 Block of West First Avenue. Most, like Shin, who is among 10 who have been in line since Saturday- were being paid by realtors to hold a place in line. He refused to say how much he was being paid.
