DAYS ON THE MARKET One

CO-OP AGENT Ira Jelinek, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.

The Action: A condo-dwelling Toronto couple with a half-million-dollar budget and looking for a single-family home went east in search of an acceptable house. Their agent, Ira Jelinek, escorted them through half a dozen options this July. At the end of the day, they negotiated a deal for this three-bedroom townhouse in Ajax.

"They were considering Scarborough, Pickering, Ajax and Mississauga based on transit and GO station [access] to come back to Toronto," Mr. Jelinek said. "And this feels like a nice house."

What They Got: In a low-rise complex formed in the 1980s, this end-unit is still in good shape with newer roofing, air conditioning and a deck off the dining room.

Like many neighbouring units, this two-storey home has an attached garage and a fenced-in backyard. Inside, there are entertaining areas on the main and lower levels, as well as a master bedroom upstairs with a walk-in closet and one of three bathrooms.

Water is included in monthly fees of $174.

The Agent's Take: "It's standard as per size, but this one probably showed the best … it backed onto a ravine, which was nice for privacy, especially since they have a dog, too," Mr. Jelinek said.

"[In addition] the location was good in that it's walkable to a busy plaza with everything they would need."

This custom home boasts three bedrooms, four bathrooms, a finished basement and custom backyard shed. It was sold in two days without staging.
