Buyer interest in townhouse properties seemed to wane in October, just as this three-bedroom residence on a 12-by-71-foot lot came to market. It took 15 days to bring in 15 visitors.
“The market had slowed down by then,” agent Jenelle Cameron said. “[Furthermore], we had some competition in south Etobicoke for similar townhomes.”
What they got
Just south of the Gardiner Expressway, this home is part of an 11-year-old complex filled with similar three-storey units. This one has a street-level front entrance and a rear double garage.
The lower level has a study area and the main level offers a large entertaining area and eat-in kitchen. There is a gas fireplace in the living room and granite and hardwood finishes in the kitchen, with doors to a south-facing deck.
A smaller balcony is located off a third-floor bedroom with a walk-in closet and largest of three bathrooms.
Monthly maintenance fees are $163.
The agent’s take
"It was nicer in the way it was decorated and finished, so that was appealing to people,” said Ms. Cameron, who credits the seller – an interior designer – for its appearance.
“[In addition, these townhouses] are unique because they have a condo component to it, so you pay a small maintenance fee and it covers all the grounds maintenance and snow clearing. And they do a nice job of landscaping in front of all the units.”
