Some house hunters were put off by renovations required in the original bathrooms of this detached bungalow, but with few alternatives nearby nearing the end of April, it found a serious buyer on the offer date.
“Some houses are still getting three to four offers – some none,” agent Nancie McLeod said.
“With a hold back selling strategy, this home sold in just seven days, with one offer.”
What they got
This three-bedroom home with a double garage is a product of the 1950s with a brick façade, hardwood floors throughout and a fireplace in the living room.
Overlooking the fenced-in backyard is a dining room and an updated kitchen with stone floors. To reach the 53-foot-by-153-foot grounds directly, there is an exit from an open recreation area in the basement, which also contains two bedrooms.
The agent’s take
“Properties are always in big demand in Sunnylea,” Ms. McLeod said. “And the house was close to great schools, parks, et cetera.”
Though this home needs some repair, it offers 3,026 square feet of living space across two floors. “It’s a large home with an amazing basement and walkout to the beautiful yard,” Ms. McLeod said.
