Listing agents: Bryon Howard and Shirley Wright, Re/Max House of Real Estate

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.”
