Listing agent: Steven Hill, Sotheby’s International Realty Canada
The action: During the first few months of 2018, agent Steven Hill moved properties quickly in some areas, such as Strathcona Park, where he sold this two-storey house on a 30-foot lot within a few days mid-February.
“Calgary’s market right now is really soft, but this was in a sought-after area and it was priced correctly,” Mr. Hill said.
“This price point for this home is rare for this community. Usually, the homes are $100,000 to $300,000 higher, so for a family to get into Strathcona Park below $500,000 is really attractive.”
What they got: Just a few doors away from a ravine and park system that winds around the low-rise Strathcona Park neighbourhood, this 37-year-old house has its own outdoor retreat with a private backyard, large back deck and double garage.
Inside, there is 1,300 square feet of living space, including a kitchen, living and dining rooms with hardwood floors, as well as three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The 511-square-foot basement has recreation and hobby rooms.
The agent’s take: “It was a lovely small home in a desirable neighbourhood,” Mr. Hill said. “It’s connected to ravines and pathways, and it’s in a great location to get to downtown.”
