DAYS ON THE MARKET Three

LISTING AGENTS Kevin Crigger and Wanda Lalonde, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd., Johnston and Daniel Division

The Action: This detached, brick residence was not only repaired, staged and marketed by a team of professionals led by agents Kevin Crigger and Wanda Lalonde, but it was also priced close to market value in order to sell faster than comparable homes in Thornhill Woods. The strategy generated multiple offers shortly after about 20 showings and two open houses were conducted.

What They Got: A 40-by-89-foot lot was allotted for this two-storey house, which has a four-bedroom and four-bathroom plan, upscale hardwood and tile floors and practical conveniences, such as a central vacuum system, laundry room with entry into the double garage and a lower level guest bedroom.

Public quarters include a living room with gas fireplace, a formal dining room and an eat-in kitchen with an island and walkout to a deck overlooking the fenced backyard, which can also be reached through patio doors in a family room with a wet bar in the basement.

The Agent’s Take: “There are good schools within the area, great recreation and outdoor facilities as well, and it’s in a very convenient location in proximity to highways,” says Mr. Crigger. “[Plus] there’s a real sense of community since a lot of people know each other.”

Buyers also appreciated the work put into this particular home. “It’s in a subdivision, so [the houses are] fairly similar throughout, but the initial finish selections my client made were good,” Mr. Crigger adds.
