About the Property

Check out this detached 2-storey house in Ajax, consisting of 4+1 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. This property sits on a very nice lot that backs onto a forest park. The basement can be rented as a separate 1 bedroom apartment as there is a full kitchen and full bathroom. There is also a separate entrance through the carport that goes directly to the basement. The property is quite dated throughout, but has been well maintained. The roof does have solar panels and the buyer would have to assume the contract with Grasshopper Energy for another 15 years. The exposed portion of the roof was replaced in 2022.

Comparable Analysis

  • 15 Heatherwood Road sold for $870,000 in November 2022. This 4 bed, 3 bath property is in a the same neighbourhood as subject property and is similar in sq ft. The comparable property does sit on a slightly smaller lot and does not back onto a forest park. Although the comparable does have a little more curb appeal and does have a garage, it is also dated throughout like the subject property. It is important to note that the comparable does not have a separate basement apartment with a bedroom or kitchen. After making some adjustments, we believe the subject property would sell for around $840,000, in “as is” condition.
  • 25 Emperor Street sold for $840,000 in December 2022. The comparable features 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and is a side-split. The comparable does not have a full basement, as part of it is a crawl space. The subject property has a full basement which can be used as a separate apartment consisting of one bedroom, one bathroom, and a kitchen. The comparable does have a single car garage, whereas the subject property only has a carport. The comparable property is very dated throughout and actually seems to be in worse condition than the subject property. Also, the comparable does have a smaller lot than the subject property and does not back onto a forest park. After adjustments, we believe that the subject property would sell for around $840,000, in “as is” condition.
  • 5 Strathy Road sold for $925,000 in October 2022. This detached side-split consists of 3+1 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The comparable is less superior than the subject property as it has one less bedroom above grade and two less bathrooms. The comparable is similar to the subject property as it does have a separate basement apartment with a kitchen. But, the comparable does have a garage, whereas the subject property has a carport. However, the comparable does not have the privacy of backing onto a forest park as the subject property does. Considering the superior qualities of the subject property, as well as the slight change in the market, we believe after a cosmetic renovation, the subject property would sell for a price around $925,000.
