LISTING AGENT Keith Roy & Associates

The Action: The buyers were attracted by this house’s standard 33-by-122 lot, its proximity to SkyTrain and the flexible floor plan, according to Mr. Roy. An underground oil tank was discovered on the property and had to be removed before the house was sold.

What They Got: This 1,850-square-foot bungalow has two bedrooms upstairs and a one-bedroom basement suite.

The 1953 home has updated kitchen and bathroom, with original oak floors on the top floor.

This home is just a little further east than the current hot pocket of East Vancouver real estate,” says listing agent Keith Roy. “The seller redid the entire basement suite, added backyard landscaping and updated the plumbing and electrical service during the time they owned the home.”

The Agent’s Take: “East Vancouver is probably the hottest real estate market in the Lower Mainland. Buyers have very little choice and most sellers are getting very close to asking. We are working with families who are benefiting and suffering from this every day.”
