When looking for a home, you’re always going to be searching with a specific price point in mind. If you’re on the hunt for a new construction townhome, there’s several projects to be found that offer homes below the $800,000 benchmark.
Here’s a handful of developments across the Greater Vancouver region with townhomes currently selling under the $800,000s.
