LISTING AGENT James Garbutt, Sutton Group

The Action: Vancouverites continue to go to New Westminster in search of more value for their dollar. The market is hot. "To give you an example, earlier this year the home was evaluated by another agent at $850,000," listing agent James Garbutt says.

"We sold it in multiple offers at $1,080,000, with no subjects." The buyers didn't require financing or an inspection.

What They Got: The 1964 Cape Cod house with hardwood floors is updated and in excellent condition, with a 3,683-square-foot floor plan over three levels. The house has one bedroom on the main floor, four bedrooms upstairs and a one-bedroom suite in the basement. It's located in the popular Massey Heights neighbourhood.

"Homes here sell fast and don't come up often because people don't leave this neighbourhood," Mr. Garbutt says.

The Agent's Take: "The properties in Massey Heights are lower density, on wider lots … It's the perfect home for a family with young children, and that's exactly who the buyer was," Mr. Garbutt says.
