Highest- and Lowest-Priced Listed Homes in… Hastings

East Van’s Hastings neighbourhood has changed dramatically and offers great housing options – here are the highest- and lowest- priced homes currently listed

June 13, 2016


No one would argue that Vancouver’s real estate landscape has changed over the past few years, and nowhere is this more evident than in the Hastings neighbourhood. Spanning a large chunk of the city, the area starts at Main and Hastings and moves eastward to Nanaimo. The Hastings area includes popular East Side neighbourhoods of Railtown, Hastings Sunrise and slices of Grandview and Strathcona. It also includes parts of the Downtown East Side.

Below is an overview of the highest- and lowest-priced properties – condos, townhouses and detached houses – in this exciting area. Keeping in mind the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver’s Home Price Index for East Vancouver, it’s interesting to see some of the homes, below, showing far under and over the benchmark East Van prices for condos ($403,800), townhouses ($725,500) and detached houses ($1,456,700). Read on to see for yourself, and click through the links below to see the full listings and photo galleries of each home.
