Views can be a big selling point when it comes to marketing a luxurious property.
At least that appears to be the case with a Coquitlam executive home that sold this month for $3 million in just nine days.
The property is located at 1439 Shay St. in the Partington 2 neighbourhood in Coquitlam, and the views from its expansive deck include the Pitt River and the mountains beyond.
In fact, it was mostly photos of the beautiful views that were featured in the Zealty.ca listing.
The 5,000 sq. ft., three--year-old home has seven bedrooms and six bathroom and was originally listed at $2.88 million, just under the $2.91 million assessed value.
In addition to being in a rural area, on a mountain next to a greenbelt, the home sits on a 7,000 sq. ft. lot and appears to have a fenced back yard according to photos on Zealty.ca.
The seller's agent was Rennie & Associates Realty Ltd. and the buyer's agent was Sutton Group-West Coast Realty.
Hanson Lu sold this property, according to the company.
in Coquitlam meanwhile, the benchmark home price (for all home types) was $1,077,900, with the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver reporting a greater than anticipated increase in sales and prices for April.
However, with inflation inching up in April, analysts are speculating that the Bank of Canada may have to consider an interest rate hike.
The bank's next interest rate decision is set for June 7, ahead of the May jobs report from Statistics Canada on June 9.
