DAYS ON THE MARKET One
LISTING AGENTS Julie Kinnear and Jennifer Palacios, Keller Williams Neighbourhood Realty
The Action: A small number of units were up for sale at Bayview Place in Willowdale, but the sellers of this three-bedroom suite only had to open their door to 20 buyers to find one who negotiated an offer.
What They Got: In a complex with a trio of mid-rises, this more than 30-year-old suite has a 1,130-square-foot plan with classic maple hardwood floors and a fireside living area along sliding balcony doors, plus a master suite with a walk-in closet and one of two bathrooms.
All other comforts are provided in a renovated kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a laundry room and ensuite locker, plus parking.
Monthly fees of $631 pays for utilities, cable and pool.
The Agent's Take: "It's in a low-rise, older condominium building, so it's a big space for not as much money," says agent Jennifer Palacios, who sold her sister a unit in the complex for that reason.
"This is one of the bigger units."
This unit's mix of urban and rural elements was another benefit. "It showed really well, so we didn't need to stage it," Ms. Palacios states. "It has a nice view of the park."
