The action

Agent Dennis Sepulveda first listed the condo on Feb. 22 for $579,000. They quickly received an offer, but that deal fell through due to financing.

They re-listed the unit on March 3 and quickly received two offers, selling over asking.

“As you can imagine, my sellers are over the moon,” Mr. Sepulveda said.

The sellers, a young couple from the Czech Republic, had purchased the condo in August, 2020 for $385,000.

What they got

The bright unit has 797 square feet of living space, with two bedrooms, one bathroom, a small kitchen, stacked laundry, a balcony and laminate floors.

The unit comes with one parking space and the nine-year-old building has a guest suite and allows rentals and pets. It is near Langley and walking distance to shops, schools and restaurants.

The agent’s take

The first offer on the property fell through because of the recent increase in interest rates, Mr. Sepulveda said.

“Some buyers haven’t been able to re-qualify for a mortgage after the recent interest rate hike.”

The deal completes on April 29.
