Five Metro Vancouver homes most viewed by Hong Kong sources

This week, we’re rounding up the local properties being viewed by REW.ca audiences in Hong Kong, our largest audience outside of North America (yes, beating out China). What we found was an interesting mix of properties, weighted toward townhomes, at a wide range of price points. Each home is lovely in its own right, and features at least two bedrooms (no studios or one-bedrooms on this list) and is located in either Richmond or Vancouver.
