LISTING AGENT Dwayne Launt, Stonehouse Realty, Sutton Group – West Coast Realty

The Action: Vancouver's single-family house market appears to be thriving, with desirable detached houses often selling for more than asking. Duplexes like this one are also in fairly good demand, which is why it sold in just over a month, despite the light-industrial location. "We originally listed for $639,000 and had many showings," says listing agent Dwayne Launt.

What They Got: This 1980s-style duplex on Strathcona's industrial fringe got a complete makeover in 2009, turning it into a light-filled contemporary two-level space. Still, the building is next door to a warehouse, which made it a slightly harder sell than if it had been located further inside Strathcona, which is like an urban village.

The Agent's Take: "In the Strathcona market as well as Kiwassa, which is eastern Strathcona, things have been selling quite quickly," says Mr. Launt. "There's just not a lot out there right now. Of course people prefer to have the hot items, detached homes within the core of Strathcona. This being attached and a bit further out, [the sale] took longer than expected."
