Sale of the Week: The east-end property that proves it’s still possible to find a house for $500,000
Address: 89 Coleman Avenue
Agent: Mike Clarke, Keller Williams Advantage Realty, Brokerage
The property: A two-storey row house with lots of recent touch-ups.
The history: The sellers lived here for three years with their children, but recently decided to move into a larger home nearby. Over the past few years they added new wiring, roofing, flooring and landscaping. They also updated the bathroom.
The fate: The buyers are a married couple who were looking for a solid starter home. They found one, for not much more than the price of a medium-sized condo.
The sale: The sellers had already moved, so a quick closing was important to them. The property sold on its offer date, after just 5 days on the MLS. There were five offers.
By the numbers:
- $2233.24 in taxes (2015)
- 1012 square feet
- 2 bedrooms
- 1 bathroom
The house has large foyer that doubles as a sunroom:
The living room is at the front of the house:
Here’s the dining room. If the buyers want a more modern flow, they might be able to knock down the wall that separates this space from the kitchen:
And the kitchen itself could probably use a bit of an update:
There are two bedrooms on the second floor. This one is on the small side, but it gets the job done:
And here’s the master bedroom:
This is the only bathroom in the house. The sellers did a little modernization in here before putting the place on the market:
The basement bedroom seems like the perfect place for a teenager. Just think of all the contraband they could hide up in that drop ceiling:
The backyard has a covered porch, painted a cheerful shade of blue:
