If you have not read the news yet, be aware that Strata Insurance all across BC are increasing in some strata properties.  Some strata are finding that their insurance for the building are increasing anywhere from 50% to 400% increase.  Being that all strata are owned and shared by multiple individuals, strata fees will be increasing.  Before buying any strata properties I recommend you read this news article from CBC, and call me if you have any questions you may have.
