This past weekend was the kick off for a new listing of mine in East Vancouver. The condo market may have been flat in recent past but we are off to a smoking start. I had 55 groups of buyers through my open houses on Saturday and Sunday. Although the unit did not suit all parties that visited the open house, all but a hand full of visitors were qualified buyers that are actively searching in the market (i.e. there were very few “tire-kickers”).
Why so active you ask? There is a shortage of listings. We are not yet in the spring market so the inventory is still on the rise. There is a lot of buyers and a lack of options in East Van in this type of product.
The other key factor is our staging. Dale and I staged this listing, as we do with all of our listings, and had professional photos taken. The end result is a product that sparkles and that buyers are not willing to risk waiting or procrastinating when it comes to scheduling their viewing. Take a look at a couple of the before and after shots below.
At the end of the day the sellers received two offers and have accepted one. Click here to view more photos and information for this listing.
Call Dale and I today to take advantage of the active market!
