LISTING AGENT Keith Roy, Re/Max Select
The Action: Listing agent Keith Roy held three open houses within a week and saw 30 groups come through. He received one offer, from a couple, both lawyers in their 30s.
"In order to sell a home just off Commercial Drive we needed to market the home to condo owners moving up as well as young families who'd been priced out of the market," said Mr. Roy. "We were able to bring in buyers from both ends of the market."
What They Got: This four-bedroom, three-bathroom townhouse is outfitted with gourmet kitchen, quartz counters, electric fireplace, heated floors, hardwood floors, private ground-level patio, office and media room. There's a south-facing patio with a view of the North Shore mountains, and one covered parking space. The unit is large, with 1,958 square feet of living space.
The Agent's Take: Mr. Roy said it's rare to find a four-bedroom townhouse that has the feel of a house.
"There is a lot of demand for large townhomes that are big enough for families," he said.
He said the sellers, who'd purchased as a presale before the complex was built in 2015, "took advantage of the recent price increase to cash in."
