The WeLoveEastVan Team is proud to present this studio unit near Commercial Drive – #111 at 1545 East 2nd Ave (near Woodland Drive).

The building, Talishan Woods, is a 1976-built building that has been well maintained with a new elevator this year, new roof in 2012, new exterior paint in 2009. For peace of mind, the building also has  Depreciation Report. The unit comes with 1 underground parking spot and a storage locker. The building offers shared laundry and a bike room.

The building is only a block and a hal to the best part of Commercial Drive: you’re close to food shops and the Super Valu on East 1st Ave and some of the best restaurants including La Mezcaleria, Falconetti’s, La Grotta del Formaggio and Take Home Thai. The BC Liquor Store is only 2 blocks away. The Commercial Drive Skytrain Station is 8 blocks away and you’re a quick bike ride to Main St, Chinatown, Gastown and Downtown.


Given the increasing rental prices in Vancouver, this unit would likely be cheaper than renting! I had Eitan Pinsky of Origin Mortgages offer some example numbers for financing:

5% down payment: 

$11,995 down payment

$227,905 Mortgage + $8,205 CMHC = $236,110 total mortgage

Monthly payment $1,074 (25 years amortization)

Required annual income: $40,820

20% down payment:

$47,980 down payment

$191,920 mortgage

Monthly payment $771 (30 years amortization)

Required annual income: $31,480

*Keep in mind that financing approval depends on a number of factors including the down payment, assets, debt and income. Contact Eitan for more information.
