Sale of the Week: The house that shows what $1 million gets you in Moss Park
Address: 317 Ontario Street
Neighbourhood: Moss Park
Agent: David Harland, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd., Brokerage
The property: A revamped three-bedroom townhouse in Moss Park.
The history: The sellers bought the property a decade ago and redid the whole main floor. They put in plank oak flooring and built-in bookcases, and they revamped the kitchen with new cabinetry and countertops. They completed their renovations in 2015. Now, their family is growing, so they’re moving to a bigger home, closer to recreational areas.
The fate: The house is move-in ready. To the selling agent’s knowledge, the buyer isn’t planning to make any significant changes.
The sale: The sellers knew they were just outside of prime Cabbagetown, so they priced below a million dollars to generate more interest. After a flood of showings, four offers came in. As the sellers debated which one to work with, each potential buyer increased their bid. Although two offers were very close, the sellers went with the highest, at $125,000 over asking.
