"There may be talk of the market cooling across the country, but in Vancouver things have, at worst, stabilized," says agent Walter Wells. For example, the previous owners of this 2,000-square-foot home made a $175,000 profit in just one year.

"While there seem to be fewer buyers today and listing inventories have crept up, the demand remains strong on Vancouver's west side and prices are holding steady," says Mr. Wells.

He believes the most saleable feature of this Dunbar home is its bedroom layout.

"This property sold quickly for such a great price because it offered three bedrooms plus a den, while many bungalows have only two bedrooms; and it has a self contained one-bedroom basement suite," he notes.

The house sports fresh paint, a new stainless steel refrigerator, new flooring, a new washer and dryer, and a new hot water tank. The previous owners also remodelled the main bathroom.

This house on West 21st Avenue is close to many schools (Kitchener, Queen Elizabeth Main, St. Georges and Lord Byng), Chaldecott Park, shops, restaurants and transportation.
