Similar to last year’s most-read Done Deals, the 2018 transaction portfolios that drew the most clicks to our site are properties with potential for residential real estate development. Land parcels outside of the Vancouver core proved popular, with the cities of Coquitlam, Mission and Squamish making the cut. The most-read sale, however, took place outside of B.C.

Here is our annual countdown of's five most popular Done Deals of 2018.


5. Surrey multi-family development site sold for $36.35M

The first Done Deal to make the list was published just this month and is one of the year’s priciest transactions on our site. The two-parcel property totals 24 acres and sold for more than three times it’s assessed value of $8.22 million.

4. Large-scale Coquitlam trailer park sold for $38M

This Maillardville trailer park is the most expensive transaction to make our most-read list. At 30.37 acres, it’s also the biggest in size.

3. Downtown Squamish hotel sold for $4.45M
