DAYS ON THE MARKET Two

LISTING AGENT JoAnne Gludish, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.

The Action: One of the owners of this detached, side-split residence in Richview wanted to test the market at $629,900, but few families saw the practicality of having bedrooms on different levels. So after 10 days, the price was reduced to $574,900 and an offer accepted within 48 hours.

What They Got: On a 45-by-123-foot lot fronting onto a quiet street near schools and parks, this 1960s residence was recently improved inside and out, from new windows and an interlocking patio to updated mechanics and contemporary eat-in kitchen.

Classic hardwood floors appear in the combined living and dining room and master suite on the main floor, as well as two bedrooms above the double garage.

Laminate covers the sitting area and recreation room in the basement, which also has a separate side entrance and one of three bathrooms.

The Agent’s Take: “It had good bones, good neighbourhood and a nice lot,” says agent JoAnne Gludish.

“[The sellers] also paid a lot of attention to the guts of the house – the furnace, the windows, the roof – not necessarily to beautifying the walls.”
