LISTING AGENT Bill Mohan, Sutton Group Realty Systems Inc.
The Action: When this detached house was first listed at $699,900, two other nearby houses also appeared on the market and extensive renovations began next door, which both drove several potential buyers away. So this residence was reposted for $20,000 less at the tail end of winter, prompting 40 buyers to schedule private tours and one visitor to made a bid.
What They Got: After the previous owner of this nearly 75-year-old house moved in, it was given updated windows, doors and wiring, as well as a new deck off the remodelled eat-in kitchen and hardwood floors in the living and dining rooms.
The top floor features three bedrooms and the larger of two bathrooms, while the lower level has a carpeted recreation room and separate side entrance to a mutual driveway and treed yard on the 25-by-111-foot lot.
The Agent’s Take: “It’s a really nice, friendly street and it’s a very reasonable price for a detached home,” agent Bill Mohan said. “It’s pretty typical with three bedrooms and two storeys.”
