Buyers could pick and choose from pre-construction or resale homes in this west end subdivision in August. This roughly six-month-old house scored a conditional offer within days and had a backup bid to boot.
“I was worried taking on the listing as we were competing against new development," agent Christina Hagerty said. “[But some] people don’t want to wait nine months.”
The people looking at this house wanted, “to be outside the inner city and have more room,” she said. "And now is the best time to buy, with the lowest historic interest rates.”
What they got
This house on a 33-foot-by-125-foot lot backs onto protected green space and has 2,410 square feet of living space with direct access to a double garage. The basement is unfinished.
The interior design is contemporary with an open entertaining area warmed by a gas fireplace. The eat-in kitchen backs on sliding patio doors.
All three bedrooms have walk-in closets. The master has direct access to the laundry room and one of three bathrooms.
The agent’s take
“It’s typical in terms of size and exterior, but what was unique was the owner’s impeccable taste and it also has one of the best lots out there,” Ms. Hagerty said.
“It backs onto an environmental reserve, so they’ll always have that green space.”
