Hot Listing for October

2736 Thompson front

5,652 Sq Ft | $1,697,000
5 BED  | 6 BATH  | Valleyview

     2736 Thompson, Kamloops

2736 Thompson Drive: This is a one of a kind waterfront home. What separates 2736 Thompson Drive from all other riverfront homes in Valleyview and Dallas are these 5 things:

  1. Elevation, this 5600sqft home on .47 of an acre is one of the highest pieces of property along the South Thompson River.
  2. Privacy, this property is lined on both sides with mature cedar trees and well above the river so that no one can see into the rear yard.
  3. Location, this home is located just minutes away from all levels of schooling, shopping, and all other amenities.
  4. Custom design, in 2005 this home was built over top the existing home that had been there since 1959. The floor plan is a perfect combination of open spaces and private areas so that large families can come together and seek quiet privacy when wanted….

Testimonial

Buyers Rick & Jaime Welch recently sold and bought a home in the area. Here is what they had to say about working with the Platinum Real Estate Team:

Eric explained his Platinum Process Home Selling System to us and we were immediately sold on the systems and strategies he wanted to execute to get our home sold for the top end of its value range. His advice on how to prepare our home was very helpful and the use of his professional photographer made our homes presentation complete. Our home looked spectacular on-line and the showings came fast and frequent; as a result we had an accepted offer in only 17 days for exactly what Eric had hoped to get for us! We are obviously very pleased and highly recommend Eric to anyone thinking of selling their home.
