DAYS ON THE MARKET One

LISTING AGENT Jody Thompson, Re/Max Professionals Inc.

The Action: The Mimico market was thin in early August, with few properties for sale. This detached, two-storey house was not only priced under $1-million, but was within a five-minute walk of Lake Ontario. It was also decluttered and staged to improve its chances.

"We had six or seven showings booked and literally the first showing ended up buying it that day," agent Jody Thompson said. "Even in this market, you wouldn't expect it to go that quickly, but we priced it well to sell and we pretty much got what we asked."

What They Got: Aside from a recently renovated kitchen and two bathrooms, this 1,101-square-foot structure retains some 1950s design elements, from a brick fireplace in the living room to hardwood floors in the formal dining room and all three bedrooms.

A recreation area and guest room fill out the 539-square-foot basement, which has a separate entrance to a mutual driveway, shed and perennial gardens on the 29-by-125-foot lot.

The Agent's Take: "It's a cottage-like area in Mimico, so it's very sought after," Mr. Thompson said. "Generally, [the homes] all have beautiful front porches, it's almost like a beach neighbourhood."

Two condominium units were combined to make this unique large two-bedroom condo
