The action

This two-and-a-half-story house is in an urban area of ​​Oshawa, with a community garden in the back and a men’s shelter across the street. Investor buyers expressed the most interest in the site, but the seller, an active member of the community, developed a good relationship with a bidder who intended to live in the house and accepted an offer of 790 $000.

“The seller didn’t want another person to come in and make it a triplex and bring in rental properties,” agent Linda Mash said. “She really wanted someone who would be there and still work with the community, helping people, and hopefully that’s what new buyers will do.”

“It’s been completely remodeled inside,” Ms. Mash said.

“And there was a suite on the third floor, which they built for their son, so it was self-contained, but there was no access from outside.”
