LISTING AGENT

Dino Capocci, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.

The Action: In an average year, there are only a few vacancies in a North York mid-rise, so an agent selling his personal residence there – this two-bedroom-plus-den suite – had no trouble finding a buyer in less than two weeks.

What They Got: On the edge of a low-rise neighbourhood – home to many multimillion-dollar residences – is a roughly 30-year-old building with just 36 units, including this second-floor unit with a den and open living and dining area with hardwood floors and sliding balcony doors.

Wet stations include two full bathrooms and an eat-in galley kitchen renovated with ceramic floors.

Storage varies from custom shelving in the laundry room and walk-in bedroom closets to an exterior locker and two-car parking. Monthly fees of $1,252 cover water and fitness facilities.

The Agent's Take: "It's different in that it had two parking spots and not all of the units in that building have two, so that's a feature," agent Dino Capocci says.

"And the other feature is that it's 1,560 square feet, plus a terrace, so it's a lot of room. It's almost like having a bungalow."

This unit's setting is also surprisingly tranquil. "It's south of the 401, so it's with all the houses. If you go just north of the 401 to Sheppard [Avenue], then you have so many condos all over the place, so it's more congested," Mr. Capocci explains.

"This particular unit faces towards the east, which is all trees and gardens, so it's beautiful."
