The action

The unit is in a complex built in 1988, located near public transit.

Keller Williams Elite

When the newlywed couple that purchased the unit walked through the door, they knew they wanted it, buyer’s agent Adam Senuik said. But their pre-approved mortgage was only $515,000. Mr. Senuik knew the condo had been on the market for two months at that time and had been reduced from $618,000. After three counter offers, the couple went back to the mortgage broker and came up with pre-approval of $525,000.

What they got

The renovated kitchen features a quartz countertop.

Keller Williams Elite

The 1,158 square-foot one-level townhouse has been fully renovated, with laminate floors, carpeted bedrooms and crown moulding, fireplace, quartz counters, heated bathroom floors and soaker tub. The complex was built in 1988 and is near transit and shops.

The agent’s take

Prices started dropping in the fall of 2018, Mr. Senuik says. “Vancouver’s property buyers are winning in a shifted market,” he says. “We have seen a lot of listings on the market much longer than the year previous.” In 2017, he’d see multiple offers drive the closing price above the asking price. It’s a different market today.
