What They Got: The concrete retro building, located in Marpole, was constructed in 2004. It’s close to the airport, the SkyTrain, big-box retail along Marine Drive, and is a 20-minute drive to downtown Vancouver.

The two-bedroom southeast corner unit has fir floors, stainless steel appliances, granite counters, 9 1/2 -foot ceilings, solarium and one parking space.

The building has an exercise room and common courtyard.

The Agent’s Take: “At this price point, you have to make sacrifices in the Vancouver market. In this case, the building is top quality, but located on the edge of some industrial property. Value for money, this is one of the best buildings in Vancouver,” Mr. Roy said.
