This house in Toronto costs less than $850K and comes with a pool
Most homes that have things like a pool are well into the multi-millions but not this one!
This Scarborough home at 79 Northfield Road is listed for just $849,000.
It's a detached-home with three-bedrooms and one-bathroom, in a great location – close to the 401 and a GO train station.
The home also comes with a hot tub and an above ground pool as well as the basement has a separate entrance, so it could be turned into a second unit in the future.
So what's the catch?
Sure, the home is very dated and the interior is due for a renovation STAT but according to the listing the pool decking and windows have all been recently replaced.
The pool isn't an in-ground one but let's be real when it's 40-degrees outside and all you want to do is lounge in a pool that isn't filled with a million screaming kids like the public pools this will do the trick nicely.
Not to mention you can use the hot tub year round! Who doesn't love a nice relaxing evening in a hot tub?
But what might be cause for concern is if you look at the sales records of this home.
It was actually just purchased in January this year for $843,000.
That means the current owners haven't even lived in the home for a year before deciding to re-list it, which raises some serious red flags.
And while it's not uncommon for people to flip houses like this in a short period of time, this doesn't seem to be a house-flip-type-of-situation considering they've done zero renovations.
So while it may be the case that the owners just need to move for life reasons it is a bit fishy that they didn't even spend a full year in this home before deciding to move...
