“Here’s a couple of attempted flips in Metrotown to watch:
7005 Gray Avenue
Sold: Mar 2010 $805,000
Listed: Jul 2011 $1,340,000 (after some renos. maybe $40-50K worth)
Note: This was listed in May 2011 for around $1.1 Mil and didn’t sell, so now re-listed even higher!
7162 Gray Avennue
Sold: Apr 2010 $790,000
Listed: Jul 2011 $1,398,000 (after some renos. maybe $40-50K worth)
Both of these houses are 1960′s era bungalows and were bought just over one year ago, prettied up with renos and re-listed just after the one year mark to avoid the capital gains.
These people must be watching old reruns of Flip-This-House.
7188 Gray Avenue
Sold: Oct 2010 $757,500
House has now been demolished and a new spec. house is being built. This next door to 7162 Gray Avenue.
Lots of builder and speculator activity in the Metrotown area south of Imperial Street. I have noticed a sales slowdown in the area recently, with a noticeable increase of listings.”
