An Abbotsford home that sold for $890,000 almost one year ago sold for $2,150,000 last week.

While luxurious renovations played a part in that massive price increase, $2.1 million for a 45-year-old home is quite something.

According to Zealty, the house was sold by Homelife Advantage Realty on February 24 and was on the market for 21 days. The asking price was $1,999,900, so it sold over asking by about $150,000.

The 2022 assessed value of 35737 Old Yale Road in Abbotsford was $1,243,000. The listing calls the renovations “substantial,” and while no dollar amount has been listed for the renovations, were they worth the extra $890,000 the house earned in just a year?

Let’s take a walk inside this swanky multi-million dollar home and find out.

Sitting at 1,969 sq ft, this two-storey home with acreage features has three bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The house includes many features and amenities like mountain and valley views, a hot tub, and a wet bar.
