THE ACTION

The furious pace of sales this April in the area around this semi-detached house near Merrill Bridge Road Park and East Lynn Park made selecting an asking price a difficult choice. But once a starting point was set, seven bidders quickly came forward.

“There were a number of properties that sold with multiple offers in the few weeks before and that week,” agent Irene Kaushansky said.

“But we still wanted to make sure our list price was in line with what other list prices were, as opposed to sale prices, because in multiple offers you never know what you’re going to get.”

WHAT THEY GOT

The kitchen was redone with quartz counters, marble backsplashes and porcelain floors, as well as appliances such as a gas stove.

The bones of this three-bedroom house were laid down in 1922, but the sole bathroom was recently updated and the kitchen redone with quartz counters, marble backsplashes and porcelain floors, as well as appliances, such as a gas stove.

Guests can be entertained in the combined living and dining area or lounge in a rear family room addition or lower-level recreation area. The are sliding doors from the family room to a deck.

To the side of the 27-by-112-foot lot is a mutual driveway.

THE AGENT’S TAKE

“Aside from the location – which was amazing, just down from the park – it was a really well-renovated home … so the quality trumped anything else on the market,” Ms. Kaushansky said.

“[In addition], it had a main-floor family room, which was quite rare for those semi-detached homes.”
