The most-expensive home sold in B.C. went in a week for more than its asking price

BCBusiness’s weekly snapshot of what’s selling around the province

The most-expensive property sold in B.C. last week was a new, 3,300-square-foot, custom-built home in the Main Street area of East Vancouver. Listed at $2.88-million, it went for $2.91 million, $22,000 higher than list price, after being on the market for only seven days.

The second-priciest sale, a Naramata Village detached residence in the South Okanagan, went for $100,000 less than the Vancouver property after sitting on the market for 91 days. A Victoria home fetched almost the same amount and 102 percent of the asking price after 49 days.

According to MLS figures analyzed by Vancouver-based Zolo Realty for BCBusiness, there were 47 properties sold in B.C. last week that could be classified as the highest- or lowest-priced condo, townhouse or single-family house for each of the province’s real estate boards.

“Turns out 19 percent sold for either ask or more than asking price,” says Zolo director of content Romana King. “Another 66 percent of properties sold for just below—up to 9.07 percent less than—list price.”

Sales data was obtained from B.C. real estate boards by Zolo Realty on behalf of BCBusiness. The type of information from each board may vary. Because real estate records are amended and updated daily, information is always changing, and it can take three months or longer to reflect final statistics.

Zolo was launched in Vancouver in 2012 by tech entrepreneurs Riley Best, who had previously started and sold a U.K online dating site, and Jason Billingsley, who had helped found a business-to-business e-commerce operation. Looking for a new venture, the pair realized that real estate was ripe for disruption. Their primary interest was sales data, but to gain access and monetize it, they needed to be a licensed brokerage. The result was Zolo, headquartered in Vancouver, with offices in Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary and Regina.

More than six million home shoppers a month start their search on Zolo.ca, which posts real estate tips and timely statistics, too. It also helps owners sell their homes, either on their own or through an agent.
