After writing my story on the Friedman house in Point Grey — which had gone on the market for $4 million and would have undoubtedly been at risk of demolition — a young Ottawa techie and his wife stepped up and purchased the house. Cory Fauser contacted me through this website and asked to be put in touch with the sellers. I gave him the necessary contact, and a few days later they’d purchased the house. The Fausers intend to live in the house, which is an oddity in the west side market of Vancouver housing, where it’s now routine to buy and hold, or buy and rebuild (cheap spec housing dressed up to look flashy). It was pretty nice to write a story with a positive outcome for once.
