The Action: Despite it being the Family Day weekend, there was a good turn out for the open house at this two-storey Leslieville house. Five would-be buyers made bids on the offer date, with the winner paying $91,000 over the asking price.
What They Got: This three-bedroom house is on one of Leslieville's main roads, but close to the Queen streetcar and the shops and restaurants that give the neighbourhood its cachet.
Staging helped the home present its best face to house hunters, with lots of white paint and an absence of clutter.
There's a large living room and newly-renovated kitchen with white cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. Outside, a fenced-in back yard encloses a new patio. The finished basement provides some income potential.
The Agent's Take: "The thing that really made the home stand out was its condition," agent Cameron Weir said."It was in absolutely immaculate condition – totally turn-key. All of the mechanical systems were redone recently. It's a very energy efficient home."
