The fate

The buyers are a young couple who wanted to live in King West.

The sale

The sellers listed the home for just under $1.6 million and then moved out, so the agent enlisted Becky Freeman of The Property Stylist to stage the space. On offer night, the three top bids were within $1,000 of each other. One of them, for $131,000 over asking, had a quick two-week closing date, which the sellers accepted.

By the numbers
  • $1,726,235
  • $5,200 in taxes (approximately)
  • 1,450 square feet
  • 12 days on MLS
  • 2 bathrooms
  • 2 bedrooms
