The action

There’s separate living room on the main floor.

Sutton Group Old Mill Realty Inc.

Some of agent Nancie McLeod’s colleagues warned her that the turnout for this rowhouse might be low due to the pandemic, but of those that did show up, there would be a higher ratio of serious buyers. In fact, she was flooded by dozens of requests for in-person showings during the week leading up to the offer date.

“We came out just after the long weekend in May, just before the rush and had 50 showings and 12 offers,” Ms. McLeod said.

What they got

The eat-in kitchen was recently updated.

Sutton Group Old Mill Realty Inc.

Part of a row of more than 100-year-old houses, this two-storey has had two bathrooms and the eat-in kitchen recently updated and there are new paving stones and a shed in the private yard.

In addition to the kitchen, there’s a front office and separate living room on the main floor. The basement is unfinished.

The agent’s take

There are new paving stones and a shed in the private yard.

“The home was finished beautifully,” Ms. McLeod said.

“The layout was interesting, with two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. And as you entered through the main entrance, there was an office/bedroom to the right, so it was perfect … [during] COVID for working from home.”

The 14-foot-by-100-foot property is also a short walk to businesses and transit along Dundas and College streets. “The location was superb,” Ms. McLeod said. “There was no parking, which didn’t seem to bother people.”
