The action

Tenants occupied this two-storey residence, so there were no open houses and limited times for showings in November. Yet, more than 100 buyers co-ordinated a visit and two placed offers.

“The average [days on market] is about 30 days, maybe less, but ours was a unique situation because it was tenanted and the condition of the house,” agent Ed Allan said.

“[But] the price point, you couldn’t beat it. You couldn’t buy a house like that in Toronto.”

What they got

The house is in need of updating.

Royal LePage West Realty Group Ltd. /Royal LePage West Realty Group Ltd.

The more than 20-year-old structure contains four bedrooms, including two with walk-in closets, four bathrooms and a formal dining room, plus social and cooking quarters on the main and lower levels.

A laundry room exits to a double garage facing the front of the 46-by-108-foot property.

The agent’s take

“It’s in a bedroom community of Toronto, so it has a very good location,” Mr. Allan said. “It’s close to a GO station, City Hall, very good schools and four very good shopping centres.”

The house itself had good potential, but needs updating. “The home was a little larger [than average], but it needed a lot of work,” Mr. Allan said.

“The bones are very good with a main-floor family with a fireplace, and both the family room and kitchen had sliding door walkouts to the deck.”
