Mercer has released its list of the best and most livable cities in the world and only one North American city cracked the top 10. The crown jewel of Canada’s West Coast and was named the 5th most livable city in the World and Vancouver continues to maintain its standing as one of the premiere luxury destinations on the Continent.
Vancouver is one of those cosmopolitan centres that offers something for everyone. Stunning mountain vistas provide the backdrop to a bustling city that delivers the very best in culture, shopping, architecture, dining and entertainment. Vancouver’s locale also put is next to the country’s (if not the world’s) best winter sports and outdoor experiences cementing its position as one of the top livable cities in the world.
Millennials look to the West
Affluent millennials are real game changers for the luxury business. Brand reputation and status symbols are no longer factors in buying decision for this group as emotional responses drive where the dollars go. A place like Vancouver is the perfect setting for wealthy millennials looking to satisfy their souls whether through the city’s diverse cultural and natural experiences or the area’s massive outdoor playground.
Vancouver’s prominence in luxury circles has created a robust market for luxury residential properties and condominium apartments where wealthy adventurers can take up residence full time or acquire that showcase 2nd property to fully immerse themselves in the West Coast experience.
Wealthy millennials who ‘are in touch with their souls’ have no problem expressing their feelings and thoughts and are interested in practical ways to execute and realize their ideas. When it comes to luxury real estate, millennials would appreciate a ‘turnkey’ design application that embraces and translates the owner’s’ individual style and signature.

Professionals that can deliver a practical turnkey home solutions that afford clients a wide degree of control and influence over design will resonate with newly minted early adopters.
Downsizing not downmarket
Baby boomers also have a deep connection to the Vancouver mystique and as the family flock goes their own way, boomers look to reduce costs by downsizing. Affluent baby boomers understand that downsizing does not mean downmarket and have prioritized luxury living when defining future living spaces.
Unlike their younger millennial counterparts, baby boomers appreciate a more catered approach to conveying their design wants and ideas. A design professional that takes the time to develope a relationship with the client will inspire more communication and freer exchange of ideas, resulting in a more honest interpretation of the owner’s’ style and signature.
Baby boomers find safety and confidence when fully informed on all aspects of any design project. Open lines of communication between the professional and client is the cornerstone to a successful undertaking.
