Real estate agents James Garbutt and Denny Dumas received several offers in the strata unit. The seller moved to a larger house in South Surrey. The buyer lived in the neighborhood and was also downsizing.

“The complex was built in 1982 but was completely renovated in 2017 and it makes the house feel brand new,” Mr. Garbutt said.

what they got

The big selling feature of this completely renovated two-bedroom, two-bathroom townhome was the panoramic views of the city and mountains.

Located in Fairview Slopes, the 1,487-square-foot unit is a 10-minute walk from Charleson Park and the levee and a 15-minute walk from the SkyTrain.

The light-filled townhome features three patios, hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace, a private rooftop patio, quartz countertops, induction stove, and custom cabinets. The building has been protected against rain.

“Both parties are contributing to the post-COVID trend of buying bigger houses,” Mr. Garbutt said. “The saleswoman runs her own business from home, she meets with clients virtually and no longer needs to be near the city.”

The sale was completed on March 23.
