I just got a call from our mortgage officer at VanCity Credit Union.
We've been approved for a mortage. And it's more than we thought we'd get.
However, before you get too excited for us, keep in mind Vancouver's outrageous housing costs. This is a city where half a million bucks is almost enough to buy you a used shoebox. If you're really lucky, you might get one with lane access.
But don't hold your breath.
