A picture is worth a thousand words.

Or in this case, how about $4 million?

Vancouver realtor Hunt Tse has listed 2573 West 3rd Avenue for $3,990,000. The Kitsilano real estate listing calls it a “very rare development opportunity to custom build your next dream home in the desired Kitsilano area.”

While Tse will likely get close to asking for the property that is zoned RT-8, which allows for building of multiple dwellings, could he have been more thoughtful with his choice of listing photo? Why the pile of rubble?

Late last year the century old, 3-storey home went up in flames in an overnight blaze. At the time the house sat vacant and the registered owner on the land title was a numbered company. A couple of squatters are suspected of starting the fire.

The new listing should have neighbours relieved as they became angry and frustrated while the charred remains of a house sat untouched for over six months.
