Listing Agent Keith Roy
The Action: The house sold the day it came on the market. The buyers had lost out on several other houses in the neighbourhood and were willing to pay the right price. They liked the location, its easy access to downtown, and the family friendly neighbourhood, according to listing agent Keith Roy. Mr. Roy had sold other homes in the area and already knew what kind of offers to expect. He also got the buyers an early sneak peak at the house.
What They Got: The 1929 character house is 2,336 square feet and has two bedrooms on the main floor and a large master bedroom and nursery upstairs.
It also has an updated two-bedroom suite in the basement, remodelled kitchen, inlaid hardwood floors, and fir doors and trim. The lot is 33 feet wide and 110 feet deep. It's about a 20-minute walk from Commercial Drive.
The Agent's Take: "The East Vancouver market is hot right now, but the key to getting top dollar for sellers is not about making sure you get 20 offers – it's knowing where to find the best buyers and how to get the most money out of them," Mr. Roy said.
