LISTING AGENT Winhan Wong, Sutton Group Associates Realty Inc.
The Action: This four-bedroom semi in the sought-after Little Italy neighbourhood drew scores of interested parties. Would-be buyers were so eager that three attempted bully offers – which the owners rejected – and eight filed formal bids on the offer date. The winning bid was $263,500 more than the asking price.
What They Got: This updated Victorian was actually converted back into a single family home after an earlier incarnation as a triplex rental. Exposed brick walls added a warm feel to the interior and a separate basement entrance holds the potential for a rental apartment or nanny suite. The home comes with a single car garage and landscaped gardens.
The Agent's Take: The home was in "perfect move-in condition," says agent Winhan Wong. "What a lot of people liked was the third-floor master ensuite," he says, but the home's overall presentation made it instantly appealing to many house hunters. "It's been really well maintained."
