LISTING AGENT Paul Albrighton, Re/Max Crest Realty
The Action: Listing agent Paul Albrighton initially listed the unit at $1.399-million for 35 days, with viewings for more than 50 different parties. He didn't receive any offers, so he relisted at $1.349-million and 11 days later received two offers. It sold slightly above asking.
What They Got: This two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo is located downtown in Concert Properties' Patina building. The 1,028-square-foot unit has views from each room, including English Bay and the mountains. It has a 100-square-foot balcony, eight-foot ceilings, air conditioning, Italian porcelain tile floors, German appliances, natural-stone counters, heated bathroom floors and marble countertops. The five-year-old building includes a gym, full-time concierge, lounge, party room, and is located steps from Robson. The unit comes with one parking stall.
The Agent's Take: The unit has always been used as an investment.
"The buyer was an investor looking to rent it out for the long term," says Mr. Albrighton. "The owner who sold it had purchased it for the same reason, as a presale."
