The Action: Because it's close to the SkyTrain and in Vancouver's most urban, trendy neighbourhood, this one-bedroom loft style unit sold within seven days. The 975-square-foot unit with rooftop deck and a panorama view of downtown and the mountains was viewed by 35 people, but it was the first person who viewed it who purchased it. The asking price was $700,000 and the unit sold for $699,000. That is $16,000 less than it sold for three years ago.

What They Got: The one-bedroom unit has floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Vancouver's downtown skyline. As part of a stylish heritage conversion by Robert Fung's Salient Group, the unit has unusual features such as 10 1/2-feet high ceilings, reclaimed fir flooring, an outdoor fireplace on the patio deck, and an in-built TV and storage unit in the living area. The bedroom also has an ensuite bathroom with tub and walk-in closet.

The Agent's Take: "The building consists of 34 units, but there are only 13 parking stalls within the building," agent Glenn Feldstein said "There is a parking stall and also a motorcycle stall that comes with this unit. With heritage conversions, parking is not the norm." And if you don't drive, I'm sure there is somebody who wants to rent your parking stall. And the SkyTrain is maybe 100 yards from your front door."
