The buyers are a couple moving from outside the city to be closer to family. They were attracted to the area’s walkability and ample green space, including the Beltline Trail and the Don Valley Brickworks.
The home was initially listed at $3,100,000, but the seller lowered the ask to $3,000,000 before ultimately dropping it all the way to $2,499,000. After that final price reduction, there were three offers. The home was on the market for three months.
