“We had back-to-back showings, one group at a time. All parties wore masks,” Ms. Cleaver says.
After three days of showings, she received four offers and the house sold subject-free. The sellers are a young family moving to Squamish, B.C.; the buyers are a family with two small children.
What they got
“This was a one-of-a-kind home,” listing agent Mary Cleaver says.
The three-bedroom half-duplex was built in 2014 and has a fully renovated attic loft space, big covered deck, south-facing garden and recently renovated basement level suitable for an extra bedroom.
It comes with a garage and electric vehicle charger. The home is on a quiet street close to Commercial Drive, shops and schools.
The agent’s take
Ms. Cleaver says the 1,666-sqaure-foot home sold quickly because it had a lot of extras for its size, and it was located among a row of colourful character houses on a tree-lined street, within walking distance of the Drive. The sale completed Sept. 28.
