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

Location was the house’s main asset for most interested house hunters, which included investors and a few builders.

The action: Over the space of nearly four months last year, about 50 buyers closely inspected this small, detached bungalow on a 50-by-120-foot lot. A few offers came and went, but the best one came from the last person to visit before the property was taken off the market for a month while the seller was out of town.

“There was quite a bit of inventory,” agent Bryon Howard said. “There were some other offers that were around the same price that we eventually sold it for.”

What they got: In 1955, this 732-square-foot residence was constructed with the bare essentials in a standard layout; a living room, a kitchen, two bedrooms and one bathroom.

Outside is a carport and detached garage.

The agent’s take: “The kind of buyer who would buy a house less than 1,000-square-feet these days is rare,” Mr. Howard said.

“There are a lot of wartime bungalows on big lots and this one had no basement.”

Location was the house’s main asset for most interested house hunters, which included investors and a few builders. “It’s relatively close to downtown Calgary, has quick access to the mountains and great access to Canada Olympic Park and all the building going on there right now,” Mr. Howard said.

“It’s also close to the Bow River, pathways and parks.”

It is also part of the city's large pedestrian pathway network & connects to Edworthy Park. Other recreational facilities are close by such as WinSport & Shouldice Park. In 2019 Bowness was ranked 3rd as one of Calgary's best neighbourhoods due to its walkability & access to recreation facilities, amenities, & transportation.
