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

The two most-expensive properties sold last week fetched similar prices, but style-wise they couldn’t be more different.

The priciest was a 2,250-square-foot Yaletown condo with mountain and ocean views, according to MLS figures analyzed by Vancouver-based Zolo Realty for BCBusiness. Originally listed for just under $4 million, it sold for $3.75 million. 

Just $50,000 less, last week’s second-most-expensive property sale was in Kelowna. The 3,700-square-foot single-family home went for $3.7 million, 86.15 percent of the asking price. It took awhile—228 days—notes Zolo director of content Romana King, because the sellers, and eventual buyers, put a premium on the waterfront location. 

KelownaMore details for these, plus the most- and least-pricey residential properties sold in other areas of B.C. during the same period, are listed below, courtesy of Zolo.

The number of sales completed at or over list price rose to 27 percent last week compared to 19 percent for the previous seven-day period. The share going for between 90 and 99.99 percent of asking price remained the same, according to King: 62 percent. “This is good news for sellers as it shows that there is demand for housing in B.C., despite what headlines may proclaim,” she says.

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.

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.
