To maintain housing affordability for SFU's faculty and staff, Verdant, at UniverCity development on SFU's Burnaby Campus, will come with an innovative pricing program which will allow owners to purchase their residence at 20 percent below fair market prices, with three key conditions: the first is that they will be living in the residence, not purchasing to rent out; the second is that on re-sale, the residence must be sold at the same percentage discount below then-current market prices. Yes, purchasers will still be able to benefit from any price appreciation - it just means that they will start at a price below market and then, if they sold, resell at a price that is also below market. The third is that the residence will first be offered to SFU faculty and staff with children before being offered to the general market.
SFU also offers a Mortgage Subsidy and Down Payment Assistance programs to assist eligible employees to purchase a first principal residence in the Lower Mainland, recognizing the high cost of housing in the region surrounding the University.
SFU offers preferred EV parking to its community members.
