Six years ago, the sellers took the house down to the studs for a total renovation, thinking they’d stay for many years. But when the husband sold his company and was invited to work in Florida, they decided to list and move south.
The buyers, a couple from Montreal with two children, moved in last month. One of the biggest selling points was being across from Forest Hill P.S.
The sellers listed at $3.995 million, but the market had already started to cool, and buyers weren’t having it. After almost a month, there was one offer, for $445,000 under asking. Keen to get the sale over with, the sellers decided to accept.
