THE ACTION

Although several buyers wandered through this renovated bungalow in June, it was essentially sold to the first visitor once they removed all conditions on their $744,500 offer a few days later.

“The seller didn’t have to sell until September, so since it was a unique property we started high [with the price],” agent Bryon Howard said.

“They had one buyer look at it and wanted it bad enough that they took it.”

WHAT THEY GOT

A roughly 50-by-120-foot lot is home to two structures: a double garage and this 1,176-square-foot residence with a multitiered deck accessible from the dining room and more-than-890-square-foot basement.

The interior has been refreshed with everything from an updated bathroom to a sleek new fireplace in one of two bedrooms. The entertaining and cooking quarters are open-concept, as are the study and recreation areas below.

Two extra bedrooms and a secondary bathroom are located on the lower level.

THE AGENT’S TAKE

“There was nothing quite like this one in the neighbourhood – meaning a 1950s bungalow nicely updated on a big lot – so the buyers valued that,” Mr. Howard said.

“There are brand new homes selling nearby for $800,000 to $1.1-million, but they are on half-size lots.”

BUILDERS & INVESTORS - YOU HAVE OPTIONS... Close on this 46x120 lot & home now, and NEXT DOOR. Or, just buy one and have 1st right of refusal on next door for later... Backing South, mid-block, steps to Confederation Park in Mt. Pleasant! If only one purchase is possible now, we'd hold the next door property for you till later. Build 2, 3 or 4 new homes on these lots, or assume the current tenants and add to your rental revenue portfolio for $1450+ per side. Maybe look to the future for land-use change; you name it-- it all works for this rare opportunity. Great little 936 sqft raised bungalow home with master on main and 2 additional lower bedrooms for potential revenue, 2 bathrooms and great, sunny South backyard w/ large deck. Many upgrades over the years and perfect for that investor or builder that requires 1 or 2 homes/lots together... So many options here, you'll be glad you have the inventory choices later. Will sell 527 & 523 together or separate... (id:31729)
