The Action: This semi-detached house needed cosmetic updates and the removal of a toilet in the back stairwell, but the amount of work didn't faze the more than 100 shoppers from assessing the situation in person.
The fact this house was the only one for sale in the Beaches at the time, and that it was strategically priced under $480,000, sparked a bidding war between a dozen buyers.
What They Got: Within a five-minute drive of schools, parks, beaches, TTC and GO transit stations, this three-bedroom house on a 19-by-100-foot has a full basement and access to a right-of-way driveway.
The interior design is classic with a fireside living room and dining area with hardwood floors and an eat-in kitchen with a walkout to a deck, plus a four-piece bathroom.
The Agent's Take: "[Buyers were] young families because it's a great neighbourhood surrounded by schools," agent Carmela D'Amico said. "The house itself had a good flow and floor plan with a fairly large eat-in kitchen."
