LISTING AGENT Nutan Brown, Royal LePage West Realty Group Ltd.

The Action: In the advertisements for this detached two-storey house, it was stated that offers would be held off until ten days of market exposure. But only three buyers got through the doors before one presented the sellers with nearly $100,000 more than the list price the next day.

What They Got: In 2007, the owners of this 1930s brick residence modernized its décor and design, so it has new hardwood floors throughout, two remodelled bathrooms and a stylish kitchen with granite counters, stainless steel appliances and a peninsula overlooking the dining room, as well as sliding doors to the south-facing backyard.

The basement was professionally finished with a separate entrance, carpeted recreation and play areas.

Original elements retained include stained glass windows, wood trims and a formal living room with a brick fireplace and French entry doors.

Other assets range from a den off the largest of three bedrooms upstairs to a front pad and detached garage linked by a wide driveway.

The Agent’s Take: “It’s pretty turnkey and in move-in condition, and I think that’s what this buyer was looking for,” agent Nutan Brown said. “It was a great little street that is literally a block long, and it doesn’t really go anywhere, so it’s very quiet with local traffic only.”
