LISTING AGENT James Garbutt, Sutton Group
The Action: The selling price is "remarkable," says listing agent James Garbutt, "considering that 12 months prior it would have sold for about $300,000 less." He says the price has set a record for that area. A newer home on the same street previously sold for $1.8-million.
What They Got: The five-bedroom detached house on a corner lot is in the Willingdon Heights neighbourhood, on a tree-lined street.
The 2,530-square-foot house on a 50-by-122 feet lot is considered a teardown, but it has a new roof and new hot water tank. It's also centrally located – close to a park, community centre, schools, Skytrain and Brentwood Mall.
The Agent's Take: "The home itself is of no value," Mr. Garbutt says. "It would require a significant renovation, but is more likely to be torn down and rebuilt. With land value increasing in this area, I would expect more record sales to take place, and for someone to break the $2-million mark in the near future."
