There were two offers for this 1½-storey house. The first offer was accepted but came with conditions and a stumble with financing soured the bid. A second offer slightly under the asking price was then considered and accepted.
“We had sold it initially only after a couple days on the market, but they couldn’t get their financing in time,” agent Andrew Ipekian said.
“When I sensed they were looking for an extension and needed more time, that’s when I called someone else who had seen the property and said they could buy it.”
What they got
This roughly 50-year-old house has an updated, two-bedroom design and a built-in garage converted into a four-season space.
The living room has a fireplace and the central dining area opens to a kitchen with marble flooring, pot lights and stainless steel appliances.
One bedroom is on the main floor, next to a den with double doors to a deck and interlocking stone patio.
The lower level has a recreation room and one of home’s three bathrooms.
An in-ground saltwater pool is at the back of the 40- by 115-foot lot.
The agent’s take
“It’s a smaller home, but renovated and still looked nice, so it wasn’t a teardown,” Mr. Ipekian said.
“You want bigger, nicer and brand-new homes all around you because that’s the number one thing that will drive up your property value in the future.”
