Real estate may be slumping in the States but in Vancouver, Canada prices are booming. The center of Vancouver is the most expensive housing market in Canada with the average sales price for a condo in Vancouver has been about 408,500 dollars this year, up 14.6 percent from last year. One sign of this the flurry of excitement over Millennium Water, a multi-million dollar housing project that is billed as Vancouver's last waterfront development. Suites in the condo complex will be home to the Olympic athletes in 2010 and once they leave the condos will go to eager buyers. How eager? They can't move in for three years but according to CTV, buyers camped out for days earlier this week for a chance to buy the condos. The suites range in price from $600,000 to $3.4 million and range from 500 square feet to 2,500 square feet. The homes offer balconies with park or water views and are available in three different color schemes: Vancouver, Canada or World.
