LISTING AGENT James Garbutt, Sutton Group

The Action: The house is in the quiet Connaught Heights neighbourhood, which is often overlooked, says listing agent James Garbutt. But he received eight offers on the house, and it sold for $92,000 above the list price.

What They Got: This four-bedroom house on a 50-by-120-foot lot was built in 1991 and features the open-concept kitchen and family dining area that is still trendy today. It comes with a huge kitchen with oak cabinets and island, engineered hardwood, hot tub, oversized deck and master bedroom with ensuite and private balcony.

The Agent's Take: The house stood apart from all the overbuilt new monster homes, Mr. Garbutt says. "The NR-1 zoning allows you to build homes around 4,000-plus square feet, which builders nowadays love to do. There is a huge demand for a modest, well-maintained home, and this sale has proven it."
