LISTING AGENT Keith Roy, Macdonald Realty

The Action: "The home sold after one two-hour open house," listing agent Keith Roy says of this house in the Killarney neighbourhood.

"There were three offers on the property and two rounds of negotiation."

What They Got: The 2,185-square-foot house had the benefit of two one-bedroom basement suites for help with the mortgage.

The 10-year-old, three-bedroom house sits on a lot slightly shorter than standard, measuring 33 by 99 feet deep.

But the house is close to transit and in fairly new condition, with skylights, hardwood floors, ensuite in the master bedroom, large covered patio and attached garage.

The Agent's Take: Mr. Roy says the location and age of the house made it sell within a week.

"Many buyers are willing to move a bit further east in Vancouver to buy a new home. This one was also very conveniently located close to SkyTrain."

"The home has lots of flexibility," Mr. Roy says. "And one unique feature is that it has an attached garage, which is rare in Vancouver, where alleys are the norm."
