The market is not letting up at all...seller's are having a field day, while buyer's are battling it out at the negotiation table!   Here are this weeks TOP THREE CRAZY  buys!

3.   Ahhh, Sooke, BC...it's not so cheap here either!  A newer 4 bd, 4 bath townhouse listed at $547,900, SOLD in 21 days for a $142,100 above list (sale price of $690K)...just 25% above ask. The unit is 2,732 s.f. which partially reflects the price! 

2. Located in Esquimalt, this 1955 built side by side duplex features: a one bed, one bath 576 sf. unit on one side; and a 2 bd, one bath, 877 sf unit on the other.  Listed at $497,000, this revenue property sold for a whopping $661,100.  It lasted a mere 5 days on the market and sold for 33% above list...a cap rate of 2.9% if all the maintenance, taxes and expenses were paid by the tenant.  CRAZY!

1.  Who would of thought that the number 1 CRAZY BUY was a 1 bedroom + den condo in the Burnside/Gorge area, listed at $217,000 would sell in 13 days for $307,000 (a mere 41.5% above list). Clearly listed below market value!
