So ... that house that we looked at in Saskatoon about two weeks ago?
It was listed at $X.
We were told by our real estate agent that it's market value was probably more like $X+10K or $X+15K (i.e. that's what she thought it would actually sell for).
It SOLD for $X+30K.
YUP. $30K over the list price. AND ... this place needs work.
I know. I'm as shocked as you are. I don't understand why people are paying so much. BUT ... I didn't understand when it was happening in Calgary, either.
