567 Simcoe St N Oshawa

This 100-year-old home in Oshawa was listed for only $1

While listing a home for a $1 is definitely a sales tactic, it works with surprising efficiency. 

Not even a week ago this three-bedroom, two-bathroom century home in Oshawa was listed for $1.

Six days later, the home sold for $790,000 – and that's a $260,000 jump from what the owners bought it for in 2018.

The living room. 

Sure, it's not Toronto prices but when you think about the location and the fact that the home had very little updating in the past four-years, the selling price is pretty noteworthy.

The main bathroom with a clawfoot tub. 

But perhaps what is more noteworthy is the calibre of home you can get in Oshawa, an hour outside Toronto, for under $800K.

A seating area in the primary bedroom. 

First of all, it's a detached house with a decent chunk of land.

The  spacious backyard. 

The property is 50 by 146 feet, so you actually have a lawn and room for an addition if you're so inclined.

The pizza oven and the hot tub in the backyard. 

Speaking of that yard, it has a pizza oven and a hot tub, which if you dream of eating pizza in a hot tub, is ideal.

The front entrance. 

The interior of the home is bright, filled with natural light and has plenty of character and charm thanks to its 100-year-old roots.

The dining room. 

There's a brick fireplace in the living room and coffered ceilings in the dining room.

The kitchen. 

The kitchen has a bit of an odd layout, but there's plenty of storage and a breakfast bar.

The primary bedroom. 

The bedrooms upstairs aren't the most spacious.

A second bedroom with original floors and windows. 

But they have the original hardwood flooring and actual closets, which is a rarity in century homes.

The third bedroom with a built-in bookcase. 

Although, the third bedroom might serve better as an office given how tiny it is.

The renovated basement with built-in bookcases. 

The home even has a finished basement.
