Luckily, the seller had a brief window of opportunity in which to stage physical visits before the COVID-19 lockdown. Given the dampening effect of the government restrictions on house showings, real estate broker Dominic Brisebois says he was surprised by the buzz around this property. In the end, there were three solid offers presented March 14 and 15.
What they got
The house is a classic 1960s bungalow in the heart of Laval, a sprawling bedroom suburb across the Rivière des Prairies from Montreal.
The house has undergone major upgrades and renovations in recent years, including a completely redone basement and kitchen and new aluminum exterior cladding.
The agent’s take
Ideal for a young family, the house boasts “a bright, spacious interior with a big picture window in the living room,” Mr. Brisebois said. Among the attractive features of its location are proximity to primary and secondary schools and to the 50-hectare Centre de la nature, a popular urban park offering lush gardens, ponds and a hobby farm.
