A house listed just under $600,000 in East Vancouver sold for $643,000 after its first weekend on the market.

According to media reports, Vancouver's cheapest listed single-family home attracted large numbers to open houses, with two written offers pushing the final purchase price seven per cent over asking.

The price of the 100-year-old, 1,951-square-foot, three-bedroom, detached house at 2622 Clark Dr. was set low initially due to its smaller size and half lot site.

"It's very rare, and that's why all the excitement," said RE/MAX realtor Mary Cleaver.

"I believe this house was, potentially, saved because it is on a different kind of lot, one that isn't necessarily appealing to builders. So this has been a lovely family home for 100 years and, if well taken care of, could house a family 100 years from today," she said.
