We recently shared a blog with our top 10 all-time favourite Vancouver penthouses, which was a lot of fun to put together—who doesn’t love drool-worthy real estate! Given that we are a real estate agency though, we want to showcase some of our own penthouse listings that we have successfully sold as well as a few of our favourites that we helped our clients purchase.
Before we jump into some examples, let’s first walk through our team’s process and why the West Haven Group should be your go-to team to sell your penthouse property.
There is a reason we are the top 1% of realtors in Greater Vancouver—we have a foolproof system that guarantees results and makes West Haven Group stand out.
What to expect when working with West Haven Group:
- Preparation & Staging:
- We believe that preparation guidance is critical in maximizing a property’s perception of value and we do this through effective staging, through either partial or full staging. To learn more about the importance of staging, check out our blog: Do staged homes sell faster?
- Stunning & Comprehensive Visuals:
- We then capture the result with industry-leading photographers that provide superior photos to catch the attention of prospective buyers.
- We also produce professional 2D or 3D floor plans to elevate the shopping experience and ensure buyers understand the full layout.
- In addition, we also offer agency-quality videography to create a tour as part of our marketing package that is used to promote your property on various media platforms.
- Strategic Marketing:
- This fulsome marketing package is what really puts West Haven Group ahead of your average real estate groups—we utilize targeted marketing tactics to strategically promote your property to increase exposure and reach more buyers.
- All of these tactics are wrapped up nicely with a polished brand that is consistent across all materials so that the shopping experience is elevated and professional.
- Preparation & Staging:
The results speak for themselves– In 2021, West Haven Group’s average sale price was $65,000 higher than similarly comparable properties and our listings took an average of just 21 days to sell, compared to a market average of 90 days for comparable properties.
