The action

Over $ 100,000 has been spent on recent renovations.Re / Max Hallmark Bibby Group Realty

With over $ 100,000 having been spent on recent renovations, Agent Christopher Bibby felt confident in pricing this three-bedroom townhouse at just under $ 1.9 million. A dozen buyers stopped to take a closer look, but none made a formal offer to purchase. To grease the wheels, the asking price was reduced by $ 100,000 and within days two offers were received and a deal was made for $ 1.74 million.

“It’s a more unique urban space and a townhouse, so it would suit a very select group, like families who want a full backyard,” Bibby said. “But our target audience may have traveled or up north.”

“Last summer one of them sold for $ 1.425 million, so the fact that we ended up where we did – $ 315,000 more – is phenomenal.”

“It’s more vertical, the aesthetic is modern and the construction is new,” Mr. Bibby said.

“The carport, landscaping, and kitchen alone were big ticket items, well over $ 200,000 worth of work, so it was a nice space.”
