The action

This four-bedroom house in Whitby’s Williamsburg neighbourhood had a good turnout despite the fact two other turnkey homes on premium lots were listed on the same street. When the neighbours slashed their asking prices from roughly $1.6-million to $1.4-million, agent Judy Weeks grew alarmed her seller might have to drop their price as well. Instead, a workable offer came forward and the sellers cut a deal for $1,325,000 – $135,000 under asking.

“When one house dropped to $1.399-million, the likelihood of us getting $1.4-million or $1.38-million was highly unlikely,” Ms. Weeks said.

“The marketing was changing and prices were dropping, but we ended up getting an offer in the nick of time.”

What they got

About 60 kilometres east of downtown Toronto, this 25-year-old house sits across the street from Whitburn Park. It was built on a standard two-storey plan with a built-in double garage and an unfinished basement.

The main floor has a formal living room and dining room, an office and a casual family room with a gas fireplace.

One of the home’s four bathrooms has been updated, as has the eat-in kitchen, with quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and access to a patio and yard on the 50- by 115-foot lot.

The agent’s take

“Williamsburg is probably one of the most sought-after neighbourhoods in Whitby,” Ms. Weeks said. The area’s schools are well regarded, she said.

This house is also in solid condition. “The kitchen, [primary] ensuite, carpet and light fixtures throughout were updated within two months previous to it going on the market,” Ms. Weeks said.
