Listing agent: Keith Roy, Re/Max Select Realty

The action: The unit had been rented out, but when the tenant gave notice the owner decided to sell, listing agent Keith Roy said.

Mr. Roy held two weekends of open houses and received one offer. The purchaser is a first-time buyer who plans to live in the unit.

The 639-square-foot unit has an electric fireplace, hardwood floors, granite counters, floor-to-ceiling windows and south-facing balcony.

What they got: This one-bedroom-plus-den unit is in an 11-year-old building, a few minutes walk to the SkyTrain and Brentwood Town Centre.

The 639-square-foot unit has an electric fireplace, hardwood floors, granite counters, floor-to-ceiling windows and south-facing balcony. The building has an indoor lap pool, hot tub, exercise centre and media room.

The agent’s take: The sale succeeded partly because the tenant was helpful, Mr. Roy said. “Selling tenanted properties is often difficult,” he said. “Tenants don’t have a vested interest in selling homes so they don’t always keep places clean or make it easy to access and show potential buyers.”
