Announcing the Subdivide and Conquer Seminar – New Trends in Selling Real Estate in Vancouver, BC

A seminar for sellers in Vancouver looking to dramatically increase the value of their property and sell quickly.

Vancouver, BC – Feb 26, 2014 – Sellers of real estate in the Vancouver market can seize on an emerging trend that not only increases the value of their property but makes it sell more quickly. As the demand for mid-rise housing continues throughout Vancouver, it is not only where your property is located that is important, it is the associated lot size and zoning that needs to considered to capitalize on this new trend.

“Vancouver residents want more affordable units for families,” says Geraldine Santiago, “a lot of the downtown construction features small layouts that appeal to couples or empty nesters. But, what happens when genY and Xers in these buildings decide to have children? Capacity is needed and developers and builders are seeking options.”


Lot size and zoning are now key components of your sales strategy when pricing and marketing real estate in Vancouver. Builders and developers are continuing to buy up properties to meet the continued demand for family housing within city limits. 


Do you know your property’s zoning options? Zoning not only refers to the division of land into two parcels, but it can include consolidation of two or more parcels into a single site, the adjustment of an existing property line or dedication of land for road or lane purposes. 

Our next RE/MAX Seminar series will be "Love Thy Neighbour" scheduled April 26, 2014


If you are looking to sell your Vancouver property, seize upon the opportunity to learn about how best leverage subdividing to optimize your property’s value by attending the “Subdivide and Conquer” and "Love Thy Neighbour" seminar on April 12. Topics will include: laneway homes; in-fill and coach houses; duplex; triplex; and builders, developers and architects.


Vancouver’s real estate market has an appetite for transactions but it’s difficult to find deals. Learn how to best position your property with zoning. 

Space is limited, please register early to secure a spot.

I have had the pleasure to work with Geraldine Santiago during my tenure at Hastings Community Centre, as a recreation programmer.  During this period (2006) she provided free real estate workshops (Buying Your First Home) for the community.

She conducted herself in a very professional manner and was succesful in providing an informative workshop for the participants.  She was punctual and always kept her appointments.

Dear Geraldine,

I'd like to thank you very much for arranging and presenting the program on First Time Home Buying at the New Westminster Public Library on Tuesday, April 10, 2007.

What a great program you have developed!  There is so much to know about buying a home; it can be quite daunting for a first time home buyer.  It was an excellent idea to invite people with different expertise to speak to their field (mortgage, realty, inspection and legal).  Everyone had excellent information to give in their area and the audience of 63 seemed to really appreciate the presentation.  It was also very generous of you to provide a copy of your book to everyone that wanted it.

Thanks again for taking the time to come to the library.  i hope we can have your team come again.

Yours truly,

Debra Nelson, Community Services Librarian, New Westminster Public Library

Ms. Geraldine Santiago has conducted two seminars on Buying Your First Home in Canada for the New Immigrant Orientation Series that Richmond Public Library presents in partnership with SUCCESS (Richmond Office). We have invited Ms. Santiago to to the same presentation again in March 2008.

Ms. Santiago has written several books ont he topif of house buying and selling including Buy & Sell Recreational Property in Canada; Sell Your Home in Canada; and Complete Home-Buyers Guide for Canadians. These popular books are part of our library's collection.


Ms. Santiago is an excellent speaker on the topic of house buying. Her knowledge combined with her desire to help people understand the topic has made her talks informative and interesting. Her presentations typically cover all apsects of house buying and include practical suggestions and information on legal procedures. Sometimes she brings other experts, e.g. house inspectors, mortgage consultants et al, to talk about their parts in helping ensure that house buyers have sufficient information to make sensible decisions.

If you need further information, please contact me at the Richmond Public Library.
