This updated, two-bedroom row house had no on-site parking, but was scrutinized by more than 30 would-be buyers. Within three days there were three offers, the best of which went $272,180 over the asking price.
“There was a three-bedroom semi across the street that had parking that sold a few weeks before for $1.25-million that showed well in pictures, but wasn’t at this level of renovation,” said agent Elise Stern.
“So that tells you that a two-bedroom and two-bathroom place that’s all done up without parking is certainly far more desirable.”
What they got
Behind its more than 100-year old brick façade, this house offers 984 square feet of living space filled with modern upgrades, including new oak hardwood flooring and a sliding barn door to the lower level.
Sleek cabinetry and a waterfall edge-style island anchor the kitchen between the open living and dining areas. A large door opens to a wide deck and backyard on the 14-foot-by-70-foot lot.
The agent’s take
“People just want to be in the Little Italy area,” Ms. Stern said.
“Nothing [else on the market] was of the same quality and level of finish as this. You could literally just bring your toothbrush and move in.”
