LISTING AGENT Hamish Ross, Glenn Duff, Westport Properties, Royal LePage
The Action: There were multiple offers on the house, which sold for $120,000 more than a nearby comparable property that sold only two weeks prior. "The market is very busy still in White Rock and South Surrey," says Mr. Ross.
What They Got: The property, a 10,800-square-foot corner lot with an older house, was sold for lot value. It is a water-view property, a five-minute walk to the ocean, one block from public transportation, and walking distance to an elementary school. The buyer could apply to subdivide it into two lots, according to listing agent Hamish Ross.
The Agent's Take: The house will either be held as an investment or redeveloped, says Mr. Ross. "Our teams need to engage investors, out-of-town buyers, builders and local buyers all at the same time … It is easy to sell something for market value, but to drive the [price] higher, we hit all of these markets through a large team of people specializing in various forms of marketing in several different languages."
