If the last few weeks were any indication, housing sales in Chilliwack really seem to be heating up.
Daily Hive previously reported on a home that sold for $1.3 million, $800,000 over the asking price.
Now this cozy rancher in Chilliwack has sold for $500,100 over asking, for $1,550,000 according to Zealty. The asking price of the property listed by RE/MAX was $1,049,900.
The historical data for the property is bonkers. In 2020 the house sold for $625,000. In less than two years, the sale price went up by $925,000. According to 2021 census data, Chilliwack actually had the second-fastest population growth rate in Canada, which may provide some insight into why housing prices have risen so much.
Located at 8950 Pandora Street, the 1966-built property has seen an extensive renovation.
Some of the features of the 2,352 sq ft property include a kitchen with an island, a gas fireplace, a fresh coat of paint, and what the listing calls a “spa like bathroom” with a soaker tub and a separate shower. The house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. There’s also a finished basement.
More on that kitchen though.
The kitchen features a ton of counter and seating space right in the centre.
Speaking of space, the open-concept living area has an abundance of it, with large windows allowing lots of natural light to enter.
There’s also a fireplace.
The home also boasts a massive master bedroom.
For dog owners, the backyard is a dream, with ample space for puppers to run around in.
It’s also perfect for summer barbecues.
The property is also situated in a great location, with popular eateries, shopping centres, and more within walking distance.
