SELLING AGENT Ian Watt, Sutton Group
What They Got: The 425-square-foot studio apartment in the six-year-old concrete tower is located near Lougheed Mall and the SkyTrain. The unit has a northeast view of Mount Baker, an open floor plan, a built-in Murphy bed for economical use of space, wide plank laminate flooring, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. The square footage includes a 10-by-5-foot balcony. The unit includes an underground storage locker. Pets and rentals are allowed.
The Action: It’s not easy to find a unit in a highly desirable concrete building for less than $200,000. “There are very few options,” says selling agent Ian Watt. “As well, the building is well run and it had a fantastic east facing patio, plus parking and storage, too.”
The Agent’s Take: “There are so many first time buyers with the bank of mom and dad behind them – but this was a solid choice for a single young man doing it on his own,” says Watt. “He wanted a concrete unit in a 10-year or newer building under $200,000.”
