LISTING AGENT Steven Hill, Sotheby's International Realty Canada
The Action: At the southeast end of Calgary, an out-of-town owner spent about half a year selling this two-storey townhouse in competition with similar, but newer product built nearby.
For better results, a local agent relisted it at the same price, but had it professionally presented and promoted to attract foreign buyers. After two showings, a $310,000 deal was signed off on in early June.
What They Got: This 1,273-square-foot townhouse, built three years ago, has a two-bedroom plan, an attached garage and street-level entrance. Nine-foot ceilings and hardwood laminate floors extend through an open living room, rear dining area with an office nook and into the central kitchen equipped with a granite island, tile backsplashes and stainless steel appliances.
There's a powder room and two master bedrooms upstairs with private bathrooms and walk-in closets.
Monthly condo fees are $196.
The Agent's Take: "It faced a courtyard, which was appealing to buyers … and it's a really nice townhouse complex," says agent Steven Hill. "[Plus] it was move-in ready, in excellent condition."
