I have sold a property at 7825 LABURNUM ST in Vancouver.
Can you imagine living on a large, quiet, corner lot at W 62 & Laburnum, which is a tree-lined street in one of the best neighbourhoods in Vancouver? This is a rare opportunity to own a prestigious address within walking distance of the Arbutus greenway and shopping, as well as being a short drive to Kerrisdale, horseback riding and UBC. At 3,850 sq feet, this home is sound enough to renovate and live in, with 6 bedrooms and potential suites and natural light on 3 sides, or build your brand new dream home and create even more value. Current garage with lane access has been upgraded to serve as a recording studio. School catchment: McKechnie Elementary, Magee Secondary. Point Grey Highschool as well as private schools nearby

I have listed a new property at 10310 149A ST in Surrey.
Great opportunity to purchase a large building lot in the heart of Guildford. Build a mansion in this desirable location within a 5 minute walk of the Guildford Town Centre. Here you will find over 200 stores with a shopping experience like no other. The planned Light Rail Transit (LRT) is scheduled to begin construction in 2019. The LRT will connect you to Surrey Central and then to the Expo Line and Downtown Vancouver. The neighboring home is a great example of the potential for this property. With a little work this 5 bedroom home will make a great revenue property or family home. Don't miss this one.

Do Home Sellers have to accept an offer at full asking price? You do not have to accept any offer in real estate even if it is a full price offer with no subject conditions. You may be obligated to pay a full commission to the listing agent if you decide not to accept a full price offer with no subject conditions. I do not take a commission even if a full price offer is presented to my client.
