A house hunter spotted a ‘Coming Soon’ sign on the lawn in front of this four-bedroom house near Sunnybrook hospital and requested a sneak peek. Interior photographs had not been taken yet but staging was completed, so the seller permitted a private tour. The buyer repaid the favour by presenting the owner with an offer $705,000 more than the asking price.
“It’s not usual for people to come through prior to [release] on MLS‚” said agent Sandra O’Neill. “Agents are being very pro-active and finding out what’s coming out soon.
“Everything was selling very quickly and for [over-asking] and in Lawrence Park there’s not a lot of inventory with these big lots and [home] sizes. So when they do come out, they’ve done very well.”
What they got
This two-storey house was built in the 1990s with more than 3,500 square feet of living space and a double garage.
The main floor is arranged with an office and two entertaining areas, each with wood-burning fireplaces.
The patio and landscaped yard can be reached through French doors in the dining room. The eat-in kitchen has granite countertops, an oversized island and high-end, Miele appliances.
The agent’s take
“It’s quite a huge lot in Lawrence Park on a really great street,” said Ms. O’Neill, who notes the average lot width is 50 feet.
“It has beautiful curb appeal and they had updated it inside.”
