Asking price: $317,0000

Selling price: $312,780

Taxes: $2,828 (2017)

Days on the market: 125

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

The interior is arranged with an eat-in kitchen and adjacent living room with vaulted ceilings and hardwood floors.

The action: The selling of this raised bungalow was a slow, but steady affair, a typical pace for small-town properties. The house on a 60-foot wide lot about a 30-minute drive from Calgary International Airport averaged two visitors a month from the time it hit the market in October to its eventual sale late this February.

“It’s been a quiet market in Calgary and surrounding areas, so it’s very normal to have so few showings” agent Bryon Howard said.

“There were some [homes] priced under $300,000 and some over $350,000, so there wasn’t a lot of competition in that $300,000 to $350,000 range.”

What they got: Built in 1995, this 1,200-square-foot house has an attached double garage facing the street and a private deck and yard around the back.

The interior is arranged with an eat-in kitchen and adjacent living room with vaulted ceilings and hardwood floors, as well as three bedrooms, including a master retreat with a walk-in closet and one of three bathrooms.

Directly below is a 1,223-square-foot basement with recreation and guest rooms.

The agent’s take: “It’s in a rural area with farms nearby, along the Calgary/Edmonton corridor, so there was a lot of interest from people who live there and work in Calgary or Red Deer,” Mr. Howard said.

“It’s on a nice quiet street and a big lot.”
