I have a 3000 sq ft 1970s home I am thinking to renovate in Vancouver. What would be the likely work that would be required. Would new electrical and plumbing be required? What is the going cost of a renovations in the lower mainland?

The scope of the work is really the condition of the house and what is needed. Alot of the time new floors, paint and baseboard/trim is fine but allow for some repairs of some leaky pipes or structural issues. For a "lipstick" reno would be at least 21,000 for a house that size but be prepared to be up to 30,000 with issues if found that would be flooring, paint and finishing with materials.

that is a very open ended question that many people ask me as a question over the phone and unfortunately that is just not a question anyone can answer truthfully but if you write a scope of what you want done or to be changed hand it over to your contractor he will do you up a proper budget/scope of work just keep it the same for all your bidders so your getting apples to apples.
