Vancouver – The January housing market in the Lower Mainland is already off to a hot start. A recent listing in Port Moody sold in just one week for $142,000 over asking. Though this was a record-breaking price in the neighborhood at the time of the sale, it has since been broken. “This is indicative of the seller’s market we’re currently experiencing,” explains listing agent Karel Palla.
Palla, along with his business partner Darryl Sjerven, showcased the home to its best advantage and maximized their marketing exposure through “Just Listed” post cards and a strategic social media blitz. Their marketing resulted in 175 groups viewing the house in one weekend and 8 offers and the house was only on the market for seven days.
