Internet helps sell Mara Lake units
The website selling tool eBay works — even if the item is large.
The first campaign by a major developer in Canada allowing people to bid on a luxury condominium unit in a resort development was a success. The recent eBay auction for three units in Legacy on Mara Lake by Calgary-based developer Sable Resorts resulted in one suite sold and the other two in “final negotiations,” says Sable.
The suite that sold “was appraised earlier this year at $510,000 and the owner saved at least 15 per cent,” says Lindsay Marett, speaking on behalf of the developer.
“Bids for each of the three suites were over $255,000 — and the number of bids combined for the three suites totalled more than 200.”
Sable still has its remaining units for sale in a “best offer selloff,” and buyers can “still get impressive deals,” says Marett.
