I hope everyone is enjoying this immediate and hot start to summer here in Vancouver. What a great weekend.
Our seawall office was very busy over the holiday period - locals dropping by to chat about what is really happening in their area - visitors from all over - Tampa, Seattle, Calgary, Munich, Deli, Los Angeles, Edmonton, Toronto, Dubai, Hong Kong - yes these were all home destinations of people I had the pleasure to discuss real estate with and of course - boast how wonderful Vancouver and our country really is.
Over the last 2 weeks - two of our listings had firm sales within days of each other. A great studio at the Dockside - 1478 W Hastings - sold and an excellent home at the Cascina - 590 Nicola - went firm as well. This complex - the Cascina / Denia is a personal favourite.
As well - the walk in traffic at our seawall office is paying off. Three purchases in the last 5 weeks - all buyers who happened to stop by for a chat - ended up buying local Coal Harbour homes. As well - I have 5 new buyers that we are now actively working with - to find the right home. One of my new clients purchased a fantastic home at 2 Harbour Green - 1139 W Cordova. The entire process from meeting at our waterfront office to firm deal was in at under 3 weeks. One very happy owner - knowing full well - that he was exposed to all options in the area and settled on the perfect fit - for his needs.
Thinking of selling your home in the waterfront area ? You deserve a full service real estate option. Exposure is key. Our office front is open 24 hours a day - posting our listings. As well our in house marketing program results in high quality photo and video presentations - to our high standards. There are many homes for sale - key is to make yours stand above the rest. Did you know - that the MLS system now allows 20 photos of your home on its service. If your working with a realtor (and paying a commission) ensure you are getting the full service - you DESERVE. There is nothing more irritating - searching out homes and seeing 3 or 4 photos posted on the MLS. Many other levels of service should be automatic. Drop by for a chat - to see what you should be getting for your dollar - both in service and in home value.
