DAYS ON THE MARKET One
LISTING AGENT Bill Thom, Re/Max Realtron Realty Inc.
The Action : As soon as this detached bungalow hit the market, about 40 parties paid a visit largely based on its setting on a quiet crescent across from St. Timothy Catholic School and steps from Fairview Mall and Don Mills subway station. The next day, the best offer out of a handful had no conditions and $82,800 added to the list price.
What They Got : This more-than 50-year-old bungalow on a 50-by-143-foot lot retains its original stone and brick façade and traditional three-bedroom plan with an eat-in kitchen and a combined living and dining room that have a strip hardwood floors hidden beneath broadloom carpeting.
There are two extra bedrooms, a second full bathroom and a panelled recreation room with above grade windows in the basement, which has a separate side entrance to the driveway and a fenced-in patio and backyard.
The Agent’s Take : “It’s a bungalow so the basement is quite sizable, but the whole place needs work,” says agent Bill Thom, who believes the buyer will rent out the conveniently located property. “You can walk to Fairview Mall and the subway, and it’s close to schools and parks.”
