It’s no secret Metro Vancouver is an expensive place to live, which is probably why so many of us dream of winning the lottery.
Someone in Delta, BC just had their dreams come true after winning the $39.5 million dollar Lotto Max jackpot.
The BC Lottery Corporation says the single winning ticket matched all seven numbers from across Canada.
As policy, all lottery winners have 52 weeks from the day the draw is printed on their ticket to come forward to claim their prize.
But, what if winning the lottery wasn’t enough?
Homes The Lotto Winner Can’t Afford
A report by the BC Assessment Agency says that overall, the Greater Vancouver areas total assessments have increased from $904 billion in 2018 to around $947 billion in 2019.
The report stated “a total of $12.65 billion of the region’s updated assessments is from new construction, subdivisions and rezoning of properties.”
Here are some homes in Metro Vancouver that not even this lucky winner can afford:
