This is one part of the full interview with Jeff Chan at Westbank. Westbank is a Vancouver real estate development company with mixed real-estate development at the core of their practice. In this episode, we are going in-depth on several Westbank projects currently in the works. We will review ways you can understand projects and realise their potential. This is a great opportunity for you to understand how to assess Vancouver properties and other properties, besides. You can find the other interviews from Jeff and more about him in the show note or our blog – www.denzity.io/blog.
- Understand projects and realise their full potential.
- Assessing Vancouver properties and other properties.
- Outside variables and their impact on the outcome of a property.
The projects featured in the episode differ in so many aspects. It is good to see how both projects are ultimately made for different people with different use-cases. When we produce Denzity Insights, we want to show the audiences how to ask the right questions and be able to derive an assessment of a property’s potential and fit. From Jeff’s presentation of these projects, you can learn how outside variables like, community, impact the outcome of a property. In the interest of time, we didn’t go in-depth into both projects. However, if you are interested to learn more about the projects from WestBank, you can find Jeff’s contact information at the show notes.
