    I always get a good chuckle when I see “sub penthouse”. News flash: the whole point of having a penthouse is that there is nobody above you. It makes no difference if you have only one unit above or twenty units above, making “sub penthouse” a pointless phrase. Do buyers really fall for that? This is like a bride getting married and telling her husband on her wedding day, “Honey don’t worry I’m still a ‘sub-virgin’, only been hit up once!”

  2. gokou3 February 21, 2013 at 6:25 pm

    A lot of million dollar downtown condos on this list!

  3. Landbaron February 21, 2013 at 6:45 pm

    What’s up with #2, 25% below assessment for a penthouse in that location, with those views?

    Wow, I mean it’s still overpriced but what a reality check for West Enders. The only thing I can think of is that the building has no restrictions on rentals and has turned into a shithole with bad tenants.

    Does anyone have information about this building?

    • Real Estate Tsunami February 21, 2013 at 7:23 pm

      My contacts tell me that The Ladies of the Night like that Penthouse.
      Like so many other Penthouses in Downtown Vancouver.

      • Alexcanuck February 21, 2013 at 7:36 pm

        Ahem!
        The Vampiresses are deeply offended by “Ladies of the night” used in that context.
        A more acceptable euphemism is “Ladies of negotiable affection”.

      • Landbaron February 21, 2013 at 7:56 pm

        Ah yes, another industry propped up by the real estate cartel in Vancouver. Although I bet in the next year or so there will be a lot of these very good looking realtors “flooding the market” so to speak 😉

        But at least The Ladies of the Night are honest about their services!

    • Slumlord February 26, 2013 at 2:19 pm

      There could be something wrong with the building (leakage and what not) because the maintenance fee is about 670 cents per square feet ($1045.0) for a 4 year old building. The ceiling seems a bit low for this size apartment, it will feel like a cave or a tunnel especially on rainy days.

  4. Anon February 22, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    Does a realtor have to pay to list a property? Do they continue paying as long as its active?

    Thank you.

    • Natalie February 22, 2013 at 1:47 pm

      In the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board, you pay a listing fee to put the property on MLS. You pay another fee if/when it is sold.

      • Spiltbongwater February 22, 2013 at 3:04 pm

        How about when a property is delisted, and relisted to try to hide the DoM or a price reduction. Does the new listing require a fee again to put the property back on MLS. Who would usually pay that, the realtor, or vendor?

  5. Natalie February 22, 2013 at 4:38 pm

    For Spiltbongwater: Whenever it comes into the board as a new listing, it is subject to a new fee, regardless of any chage in price or Realtor. The reasons that you state the realtors do it for may not always be the reason its done. I can’t believe Realtors really think the public isn’t aware of what’s on the market, how long its been on and at what price its been at. That said, I checked some MLS numbers out for the observer last summer, and it sure seemed there were cases of this.

    Sometimes its done simply to bring the listing new attention from the realtors. New listings appear on our “hot sheets” daily so they get new attention from us…sometimes people may think a price reduction plus a new relist will get new Realtor attention. This can and has helped breathe ‘new life” into a listing. I can’t speak for all realtors, but duping the public generally isn’t a listing realtor’s priority. Selling a listing is. All savvy realtors and buyers want to know the history of the listing when they are actively purchasing a property. All realtors representing a buyer have simple access to this, plus comparative sales history and more.

    Unless some kind of special arrangements are made between the listing Realtor and the seller, the Realtor pays all costs including these fees. Nothing comes out of the vendors pocket until we sell their home. If we don’t sell it, we don’t get reimbursed. If we sell it, we get the commission. Costs of marketing etc are not on top of the commssion, they are included in that commission.

    **sorry if this doesn’t post in the right spot 🙂

  6. Spiltbongwater February 22, 2013 at 9:10 pm

    Thanks Natalie. Take a look at #9 and tell me those latest 2 delisting/relisting was just to get on the hot sheets. The last price reduction reflects the vendors assessment came in with the 20% drop.

    Do price reductions show up on realtors hot sheets similar to new listings? If so, why not go that route other then the listing will show the current and former price, as well as DoM.

      No problem, these are good questions and the information is very useful

      Hi again.

      #9 111-7500 Minoru:

      Last Sale was Sept 2006 for $217,000
      Listed May 19, 2011 for $256,000
      Listing reduced once in June to $249,000 and expired in November
      Off market unti Feb 2012 when relisted at $245,800
      Reduced Feb 22 to $239,000
      Reduced March 28 to $248,800
      Listing Canceled June 4th and RELISTED with same Realtor, next day at $232,000
      Reduced June 12 to $225,888
      Reduced Oct 1 to $223,000
      Expired Dec 31 @$223.000
      Off market until Jan 8 relisted at $222,800
      Reduced Feb 18 to $189,000

      Cancel/Relist June 4th was due to new wording in our contracts to reflect a change to “Designated Agency”. If you refer to this blog’s Recycling stats of July 31, 2012, I mentioned this as a reason for the increase in cancel/relists.
      Since then, it expired once through the Christmas season and either the vendor chose to wait to relist or the Realtor did. Not too unusual that time of year.
      A foot note that you don’t see on the info here is that this propoerty is now listed with a condition that all offers be written to Bank and Court approval. What this likely means is that the vendor is now in a position that they can not clear title at this price. Also what you don’t see in this info is that the Realtor is related to the seller. If you were to buy this property through a Realtor of your won, this information must be disclosed to you.

      Price changes do show up on hotsheets, yes. I can’t answer you as to why Realtors choose one over the other. What I can tell you is that the days on the market can not be hidden. Each listing has a sales history that stays on the computer. I am not sure if public sites like Realtor.ca actually have a category for new listings. This could be another reason some people choose that route. Sometimes, the sellers insist for us to do this as they don’t want a stale listing. Not everyone understands that you can not hide the length of time something is on the market.

        I think a big “Thank-you” is in order for Natalie – not all of the frequent readers here are as plugged in to the real estate industry as others and her in depth answers are appreciated.

      • an observer February 23, 2013 at 6:29 pm

        Yes, she’s added a lot of great detail and also perspective from the realtor side of things

        I agree that the DoM cannot be hidden from a realtor as they have all the information, or have easy access to it. The DoM can and is hidden from the general public. I looked at a place that had been delisted/relisted. I asked my realtor how many days on the market it has been on, and was told 58 days, so offered accordingly. When having an accepted offer, the listing realtor sent the title, and there was a different MLS # on it, and was made many days more then the 58 that I was led to believe. Obv. I should have asked my realtor to do a property search, but really, when s/he has all that information easily available, just shows me that s/he was looking out for their own interests by not bothering to let me know that s/he can find out listing history before making any offer. When I sell a property, I would like to hope that my Realtor is helping to not have me leave too much money on the table. Similar when I buy, I would hope my realtor is helping to make sure I am notputting too much money on the table. As you likely know, a vendor who has been on the market for 2 weeks, would not be as flexible on price as a vendor who has been on the market for 1 year.

        Even in the stats provided by real estate boards, the cancelled listing is never considered in the DoM stat. My place, got reported as 58 DoM and the previous listing is pretended to have not existed.

        I do like the place, and am happy with the price I paid, but think I could have had it for a little less had I been privy to the information my realtor was withholding, or just too lazy to find out, so this is not buyers remorse or sour grapes. Obv. I will find a different realtor when I sell.

        I would hope that realtors in their to do list for clients, would provide listing history, before presenting an offer, and not expect their client who is not as familiar with the real estate industry to ask for it.

        SpiltBongWater, the DOM stat is pretty useless in its current form. Look at the weekly drop listings that have been listed for many years and then sell with a DOM of 3 days (plus a SOLD OVER ASK!!!!) because the most recent relisting price was “priced to sell”. When I see the DOM stat quoted in news stories I get really annoyed…

        My experience and the experience of just about everyone I know is also that the real listing history is not generally provided to the client. They get a sheet with all the details along with a list price history of the current MLS# and DOM of the current MLS#

      • Natalie February 24, 2013 at 10:08 am

        Spiltbongwater: Yes, if you have a buyer’s agent that is working soley for you, they should be giving you as much information as they can to help you determine the price you want to offer. YOUR interests should most definitely come before their own. If you are working with the listing agent to also purchase the home (dual agency) he or she can not offer you assistance in pricing, can not divulge the motivation or personal information about the seller. A good buyers agent will be like a detective. Anything they see or hear or know about the property and the owners motivation should be shared with you to help you determine your negotiating strategy.

        MaxPower: You’re welcome 🙂

        Just want to re-voice MaxPower’s appreciation to Natalie. Just from frequenting ‘bear blogs’ it is refreshing to see a realtor come in and engage with everyone – in such a professional and informed manner. – long may you stick around Natalie!

      • Natalie February 25, 2013 at 6:19 pm

        Overthepond: Thank you 🙂 Happy to be engaging on such a respectable blog. Its helpful for me as well to see how what “we” do is received by the public.

    Apparently they threw some HELOC money in as well, “Newer laminate flooring, new kitchen cabinets countertops, tile flooring in kitchen, bath and shower and new slate hearth and facade on fireplace.”
    Like to know if that’s after the 2006 sale, likely it is.
