The action

Agent Bryon Howard listed this 23-year-old house for $679,900, expecting it would attract young professionals seeking real estate in the popular Marda Loop near downtown. The very first visitor came forward with a strong offer, and a second bid followed.

“Typically, homes wouldn’t sell that quick or sell close to the list price … in that area,” Mr. Howard said.

“[However], there weren’t direct comparables,” he said. “There were newer, bigger homes for a couple hundred thousand dollars more nearby.”

The two-storey house has more than 1,570 square feet of living space, plus a 677-square-foot lower level with guest bedroom and recreation room.eXp Realty

The agent’s take

“It’s on a beautiful street,” Mr. Howard said, “and it has everything a buyer would be looking for in that neighbourhood; nice bedrooms, a finished basement, a double detached garage and a nice yard.”
