Listing agent Corina Marin, Prompton Real Estate Services
The Action: Listing agent Corina Marin held open houses over one weekend as well as several private showings. Interested buyers included a mix of investors from China and local people downsizing from large houses. A local couple downsizing from a big west side home purchased the property. "They were looking for a one-level unit with a view and neighbourhood conveniences," Ms. Marin said.
What They Got: The two-bedroom and den unit by Concord Pacific is in a quiet LEED Silver-certified building, with air conditioning, an open floor plan with high ceilings and a formal foyer. The kitchen has a gas range and stainless steel appliances and the patio has a barbecue with gas line. The unit has views of False Creek and Granville Island. The building has a sauna and a putting green.
The Agent's Take: "I assisted the seller in purchasing this two-bedroom-and-den suite, brand new, back in 2006," Ms. Marin, who lives in the area, said. "This type of waterfront property is always in high demand, especially in the desirable Beach Crescent neighbourhood of Yaletown."
