西溫1800呎60年海景平房 超叫價110萬元賣出創紀錄
離岸華裔買家出手

由華人買家以410萬元搶柯化拿下的西溫平房。
 
 
 

來自中國的一名買家日前以超過叫價110萬元成功拿下西溫一幢海景平房。賣方經紀表示﹐以開價300萬元的樓盤來說﹐這幅度的超叫價不常見﹐而且應當是一項紀錄。

這幢4房3衞物業位於Bayside區﹐樓齡60年﹐室內面積1,832平方呎﹐目前的業主已經住了30年。

這個樓盤在多重放盤服務系統掛牌﹐叫價約298萬元﹐放盤6或7天後接受柯化﹐共吸引了9名買家出價﹐最後以410萬元成交﹐高出叫價37%。

據賣方經紀Viv Harvey向本報表示﹐9名買家當中﹐有2名是華人﹐而最後勝出的是其中一名華人﹐屬於離岸的買家。

這名Royal LePage Sussex的地產經紀表示﹐這物業有兩大優點﹐其一是擁有海景﹐另一是可以用來翻建。

事實上﹐據她了解﹐這名勝出的買家打算建造新屋。她表示﹐這位買家來自中國﹐在溫哥華已擁有另一間物業﹐相信是透過本身的經紀而獲悉這個樓盤。

她透露﹐這名買家剛好在溫哥華﹐因而落柯化時與經紀一起前來。

該樓盤叫價並不過高﹐而她原本估計成交價可能會達到350萬元﹐但沒有想過會是410萬。

她周二接受本報電話訪問時透露﹐她對這個成交價感到意外﹐而賣家非常之開心。

她說﹐對賣家及鄰居來說﹐這是一宗難以置信的交易。

據她指出﹐若然是叫價較低樓盤﹐超叫價30%很普遍﹐但以300萬元的物業來說﹐這樣幅度則屬罕見﹐而超叫價高至110萬元﹐應當是一個紀錄。不過﹐她同時指出﹐這是一幢難得的物業﹐市場上不會有很多。

她表示﹐該平房擁有遼闊海景﹐全無遮擋的環迴景觀﹐而且地勢平坦﹐提供了翻建豪宅的機會。她形容目前當地樓市瘋了﹐但這樣高幅度的超叫價會否有增加的趨勢﹐她則表示難以確定。

她說﹐明天會怎樣誰也不知。

目前當地不少人認為尤其是來自中國的海外買家把屋價搶高﹐以致首置人士日益難以入市。不過﹐這名地產經紀則有所保留。

她指出﹐其實海外買家只佔20%左右﹐而以這個樓盤為例﹐參與搶柯化的華人也是接近這個幅度。而當地的買家佔了80%﹐所以很難說是海外買家推高屋價。

據一些傳媒引述代表買方Re/Max Masters Realty地產經紀Shahin Behroyan稱﹐難以估計買家會願意出什麼的價錢。

他說﹕「有景觀的物業已變得頗為罕有。」

West Vancouver home sells for $1.1 million over asking price

WATCH: Vancouver’s hot real estate market is showing no signs of cooling down.


Another day, another Metro Vancouver home selling for a sky-high price.

 

In this case, a West Vancouver home sold within hours for $1.1 million over the asking price.

 

“I think was this one quite sharply priced at 2.988 [million dollars] and we had a ton of interest,” said Realtor Viv Harvey. “So we ended up with nine offers: the lowest was full price and all the way up to $4.1 million, which is where it sold.”

This is the latest home to draw the attention of buyers from everywhere, driving the price way up.

 

“The winning bid was an offshore purchaser and he will be building,” said Harvey. “He hasn’t quite decided whether he’s going to build for himself or to resell the property.”

 West Vancouver home sparks bidding war, sells for $1.1 million above asking

VANCOUVER -- A West Vancouver home is in contract to be sold for $1.1 million over its asking price of $2.98 million.

 

"We got nine offers with the majority of bids from local buyers, ranging from full price to $4.1 million," said Royal LePage Sussex listing agent Viv Harvey.

 

The winning bid of $4.1 million came from a mainland Chinese "offshore buyer who has a house here already. He is buying the land to build a house for himself or maybe to resell it. He hasn't decided," said Harvey.

 

While some observers say agents are sometimes pricing properties at lower numbers to spark multiple offers and a bit of competitive bidding, Harvey said this house "was sharply priced. We weren't overpriced and I was thinking possibly $3.5 million. We didn't really think it would be $4.1."

 

The 60-year-old, 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom rancher is outside of what have been the hottest areas of the West Vancouver real estate market, including the British Properties, Ambleside and Dundarave.

 

 

It is located further west in the Bayridge area at 4130 Burkehill Place and has had the same owners for some 30 years, said Harvey.

 

She added the property's 14, 375-square-foot lot is attractive for its private location on a quiet cul-de-sac, but mainly for its "completely unobstructed view."

 

"It really is the view. It's expansive from Stanley Park to Point Grey to the Straits to the Gulf and San Juan islands," said Harvey.

 

Stu Bell, another Royal LePage Sussex agent with listings in the area, took some clients to see the property. Considering the lot size and views, the asking price could have been in the "high 3s" rather than $3 million.

 

"There is huge demand for view properties from Chinese and Middle Eastern investors," said Bell. "They are willing to pay a bit more of a premium and look at the long term for trophy properties with larger lots, views, and (that are on) good streets."

 

"You can't really gauge what people are willing to pay," said RE/MAX Masters Realty agent Shahin Behroyan, who represented the buyer. "The view properties have become quite rare."

 

He added with more developers and builders also active in the market — buying, renovating or rebuilding homes and then selling them for a premium — other buyers are feeling more motivated than ever to "pay more for the land" and build themselves.

Bidding war gets Vancouver homeowners more than $1 million over their asking price

The 1,832-square-foot home has a cathedral ceiling, a mid-century fireplace and windows on three sides overlooking the pool terrace.

The 1,832-square-foot home has a cathedral ceiling, a mid-century fireplace and windows on three sides overlooking the pool terrace.A West Vancouver home that was listed at $2.98 million received nine offers and is now in contract to sell at $4.1 million. That’s 37 per cent over asking.
 

Lived in by the same family for 30 years, this 60-year-old bungalow isn’t extraordinary, really, with its four bedrooms and three bathrooms.

 

“Currently there is a charming and very livable four-bedroom home on this magnificent piece of land, however, this is definitely a builders dream come true!” says listing agent Viv Harvey of the 1,832-square-foot home.

 

The great room has a cathedral ceiling, a mid-century fireplace and windows on three sides, from which the new owner can look out over the pool and on to the passing ships heading in and out of Vancouver Harbour. The kitchen has updated stainless steel appliances, but the cabinets date from the early 1980s.

 

Harvey told the Vancouver Sun that the house “was sharply priced. We weren’t overpriced and I was thinking possibly [it would go to] $3.5 million. We didn’t really think it would be $4.1.”

The home has views from Stanley Park to Point Grey to the Straits to the Gulf and San Juan islands.

What brought such interest to the property outside the city’s real estate hot spots of British Properties and West Vancouver’s Ambleside and Dundarave areas was likely the views.

 

Were Mark Twain around today, he might update his saying “Buy land, they’re not making any more” to “Buy land with a view, they’re not making either any more.”

 

With development increasingly encroaching on views, even in the hilly lower mainland, this Bayside home has sightlines “from Stanley Park to Point Grey to the Straits to the Gulf and San Juan islands,” says Harvey, of Royal LePage Sussex.

 

“You can’t really gauge what people are willing to pay,” said the buyer’s agent, Shahin Behroyan of Re/Max Masters Realty. “The view properties have become quite rare.”

Listing agent Viv Harvey said the house "was sharply priced. We weren't overpriced and I was thinking possibly [it would go to] $3.5 million. We didn't really think it would be $4.1."

From downtown Vancouver, Bayside is accessed with a drive through Stanley Park, over the Lions Gate Bridge and west along the Sea-to-Sky Highway, about 30 minutes with good traffic flow. The neighbourhood is minutes from the ski hills at Cypress Mountain and the hiking trails surrounding the giant fir trees in Lighthouse Park.
