The action

Rented furniture helped stage the home for potential buyers.

Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.,

Over the course of a couple weeks this summer, this two-storey house was repainted, the gardens were tended and the furnishings were replaced with rental pieces, all to appeal to potential buyers. But simply putting a sign on the lawn caught the attention of a passerby who told a friend to rush over to the open house early June.

“The new homeowner had a friend call her when he saw the open house sign,” said agent Marni Lokash, who notes neither party were house hunting prior.

“She bought the house in a bidding war the next day.”

What they got

Several rooms, including the kitchen, have been updated.

Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.,

This three-bedroom house is nearly 80 years old, but several rooms were updated over time, such as the eat-in kitchen and lower-level guest and recreation rooms. Several bathrooms were also created for a total of four.

A formal dining area and traditional living room with a fireplace were preserved, as well as a fenced-in backyard and deck.

The agent’s take

“The house showed beautifully and has been well maintained and updated,” Ms. Lokash said.

“It has brand new bathrooms, and the sellers had added a powder room and semi ensuite between the kids’ rooms, which are both huge selling features.”

The 30-foot-by-114-foot lot also has a garage, yet is steps away from amenities on Eglinton Avenue.

“The location is phenomenal because it’s quick access to the Allen, and the LRT will be a huge feature once it is complete,” Ms. Lokash said.

“Additionally, the [local] school is very sought after. Buyers typically wait for houses to buy in the area to enroll their kids in Cedarvale Community School.”
