The property

A small Greenwood house with a new interior. The structure is set back a bit from the forward edge of its lot, giving it plenty of space for a front garden.

The fate

The sellers are moving to the west end, to a larger home with more room for their kids. The buyers, a young couple, fell in love with the unique property. They especially liked how the home was tucked away from the street, for extra privacy.

The sale

The selling agent says he booked 26 showings during the house’s first day on the market. Potential buyers loved the home’s outdoor space and large driveway. After 24 hours, there was a bully offer for $246,000 over asking, which the sellers accepted without much hesitation.
