The big sell: Listing agent Richard Morrison is seeing strong pressure from buyers' demand spilling over from Richmond and Vancouver's West Side into the detached housing market in East Vancouver. This 1977 Vancouver Special is in Renfrew Heights on a 33-by-110-square-foot lot and attracted so much interest that a bidding war resulted, with the winning offer coming in at $52,000 over the list price. The home has three bedrooms on the main floor and a one-bedroom suite below with a separate entry. As well, it has a mix of hardwood and carpet, a fireplace on each floor, a master ensuite with a walk-in closet, central air conditioning, a sundeck with views of mountains and downtown and a striking Japanesestyle garden. As with most Vancouver Specials, the rooms are spacious.
