LISTING AGENT Heather Lemieux, Royal LePage Connect Realty

The Action: This detached bungalow located directly south of Lusted Park and a few blocks from Cedarbrae Mall was initially priced at $400,000, but that was cut to $375,000 after three neighbouring homes popped up on the market late last year. An offer was negotiated shortly after 20 buyers completed in-person tours.

What They Got: The original owners of this 53-year-old, brick bungalow either updated or replaced aging components, such as the main bathroom, the roof, windows and flagstone steps to the front porch.

Inside, there is a combined living and dining room, an eat-in kitchen and three bedrooms, including one with access to a deck, a shed and gated yard, plus a basement with side-door entry off the private four-car driveway on the 45-by-113-foot lot.

The Agent's Take: "It's a typical, Scarborough bungalow with a separate entrance," agent Heather Lemieux said. "The backyard backs onto a park, so you could sit on your deck and watch the kids on the playground. It was great for somebody with young children."
