The above photo is from a recently inspected multi-million dollar property in West Vancouver, Canada. The view is looking directly south. On a clear day you can see the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. Whenever I do an inspection with this type of outlook, I have to stop in my tracks, pause, take a few calming breaths from the activity at hand... and just enjoy the vista. The photo does not do it justice... I was really gob-smacked at that first moment of viewing!
It makes me wonder just how much a dream view of the Pacific Ocean adds to a property's valuation. Any opinions on the matter?
