The big sell: Kits Point is the location for this four-bedroom detached house that has been completely remodeled both inside and out. Built in 1927 on a 33-by-100.5-foot lot, its current configuration accommodates three separate suites — one on each level — but according to listing agent David Richardson, it could easily be converted back to a single-family home. Custom updates have been undertaken to the kitchens, bathrooms, decks and patios, and the low-maintenance garden has been professionally designed and landscaped and includes fish ponds and a waterfall. The interior of the home displays hardwood floors with inlay detailing, two gas fireplaces, and there is an ocean view from the top floor. At the rear of the property is a two-car garage that is presently used as a workshop with a guest bedroom and an office in the loft.

The big sell: There was a dramatic difference between the listing and selling prices of this two-bedroom East Vancouver condo and buyers’ agent Norm Flockhart explains why. The unit forms part of the Gardenia Villa development which has been in need of major repairs and improvements. The entire complex is beginning a huge renovation that includes all exterior cladding/siding, rainscreen installation, decks and balcony membranes and structures, roofing systems, all exterior windows and doors, and more. This suite must pay a special levy of $235,443.92 as a proportional share of the nearly $60,000,000 total cost of these repairs and improvements. This levy was added to the sale price and paid out upon completion of the sale. He concludes that with bank financing unavailable to prospective buyers due to the state of the building, this unit was sold to a buyer who could pay cash.
