The big sell: Big means big in Prince George. Just look at the size of the family room -- 27 by 30 feet -- larger than most one-bedroom apartments in Vancouver. This completely renovated property features hickory cabinets, an open-plan kitchen area with an island and breakfast bar, a walk-in pantry, hardwood flooring, and a fenced garden on a third of an acre. One of the main draws was the large attached garage/shop with doors on either end that allow any sized vehicle or RV to go through to the back yard. According to listing agent Dean Birks, the Prince George housing market has remained active and stable with predominantly single families moving up, down, in and out of town with continued positive change in the city reflected in many new downtown development initiatives planned to be rolled out over the next two years.
