Gallery: This East Van house sold for $567K above asking price

More Vancouver real estate craziness. This four-bedroom, 2,154 square-foot home at 65 East 26th Avenue (two blocks west of Main Street) was listed at $1.598 million dollars. It sold for just under $2.2 million. The home, which has a mortgage-helper basement suite, is certainly nice, but is it 35-per-cent above the asking price nice? Realtor Paul Eviston believes it’s a record. “I’ve been doing this for 30 years and I’ve never seen a sale that comes close to that.”
