The action

Several upgrades were completed two years ago, such as a glass-clad front entrance and a waterfall edge kitchen island.Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.

This three-bedroom house is one bedroom shy of the average detached home in The Beaches. That didn’t stop one visitor from delivering a pre-emptive offer, which persuaded three more buyers to do the same.

“At The Beach, not a lot comes up,” agent Dino Capocci said.

“Everything is selling in a bidding war. That’s why I followed suit. Similar homes were listed around $1.999-million, but some were only ending up at $2.1-million or $2.2-million and one ended up at $2.5-million.”

What they got

This three-storey house was built on a 21-foot-by-110-foot lot in 2009. Several upgrades were completed two years ago, such as a glass-clad front entrance and a waterfall edge kitchen island.

There is a formal dining room open to the kitchen and a family room with large glass doors that open to the rear deck and patio.

The agent’s take

“It’s on a prime Beach, tree-lined street,” Mr. Capocci said.

“It also had a stunning back yard and privacy fence, so it was very urban without a lot of grass.”

Recent renovations indoors also left a lasing impression. “The sellers had [used] an interior designer and it shows. So I didn’t need a stager, which is really rare,” Mr. Capocci said.

“The house checked all the boxes; it was pristine and finished to the nines.”
