The big sale: Kits Point is the location for this four bedroom detached house which has been completely renovated both inside and out. Built in 1927 on a 33-by-100.5-foot lot, the current configuration accommodates three separate suites — one on each level — but according to real estate agent David Richardson, it could easily be converted back to a single-family home. Custom updates have been made to the kitchens, bathrooms, decks and patios, and the low maintenance yard has been professionally designed and landscaped and includes fish ponds and a waterfall. The interior of the home features hardwood floors with inlay details, two gas fireplaces, and ocean views from the top floor. To the rear of the property is a two car garage currently used as a workshop with a guest bedroom and an office in the attic.

The big sale: There was a dramatic difference between the listing and selling prices of this two-bedroom apartment in East Vancouver, and buyer’s agent Norm Flockhart explains why. The unit is part of the Gardenia Villa development which was in need of major repairs and improvements. The entire complex is embarking on a massive renovation that will include all exterior cladding/siding, rain screen installation, decks and balcony membranes and structures, roof systems, all exterior windows and doors, and more. This suite is required to pay a special levy of $235,443.92 as a proportionate portion of the nearly $60,000,000 total cost of these repairs and improvements. This charge was added to the sale price and paid upon completion of the sale. He concludes that since the bank financing was not available to potential buyers due to the condition of the building, this unit was sold to a buyer who could pay cash.
