A house listed for just under $600,000 in East Vancouver sold for $643,000 after its first weekend on the market.
According to the Huffington Post B.C., Vancouver's cheapest listed single family home attracted large numbers to open houses, with two written offers pushing the final purchase price seven per cent over asking.
The price of the 100-year-old, 1,951-square-foot, three-bedroom, detached house at 2622 Clark Dr. was set low initially due to its smaller size and half lot site.
"It's very rare, and that's why all the excitement," said RE/MAX realtor Mary Cleaver.
"I believe this house was, potentially, saved because it is on a different kind of lot, one that isn't necessarily appealing to builders. So this has been a lovely family home for 100 years and, if well taken care of, could house a family 100 years from today," she said.
