House hunters had ample opportunity to browse the photographs and virtual tour for this detached house online, to the point where just nine groups visited in-person over two days before an offer was presented an accepted.
“The sellers were somewhat concerned about [COVID-19], but supply was low and pricing was aggressive, so it didn’t impact the sale at all,” agent Elli Davis said.
“There was a lot of activity and we received a pre-emptive bully offer, which was satisfactory, so we sold it quite quickly.”
What they got
This three-storey house on a 25-foot-by-115-foot lot has formal living and dining rooms with hardwood floors and moulded ceilings.
The kitchen has been updated and a rear addition created a family room warmed by a gas fireplace, with access to a deck and the double garage.
Spread across the upper floors are four bedrooms and three out of four bathrooms. There are two more bedrooms in the lower level, which has a separate entrance.
The agent’s take
“It’s a detached home with parking at the rear… so it was very appealing,” Ms. Davis said.
“It also had an addition at the rear and walked out to a deck and lovely garden.”
