LISTING AGENT Elli Davis, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.

The Action: Late in the summer, this semi-detached house was pitted against a few other Rosedale residences for sale, so it was priced at $1.55-million for better detection on buyers’ radar. Before the open houses could be held, two offers materialized after a dozen midweek showings.

What They Got: Across the street from a park and tennis courts of the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club, is a 25-by-115-foot lot supporting this three-storey, brick structure with an unfinished basement and private driveway.

Hardwood floors are a common feature in the living room, formal dining space and family room with a walkout to a flagstone patio, while tile was laid in a remodelled kitchen with stainless steel appliances.

On the top two levels, there are two out of three bathrooms, a fireside den on the second floor and three newly carpeted bedrooms.

The Agent’s Take: “It’s in a very good location in north Rosedale, adjacent to a park and an easy walk to Yonge Street,” says agent Elli Davis. “There are a good number of buyers waiting for a property like this that weren’t exceeding $2-million … because it wasn’t detached and it wasn’t gigantic.”

This property was also hassle-free compared to others. “It was in very good condition, it had some updates and renovations over the last several years,” Ms. Davis notes. “It has a private driveway at the rear of the house and that has a lot of appeal for buyers.”
