The property description reads, “This 2 Storey Home Just Needs Tlc.” The pictures, however, tell another story …

Once upon a time, there was a home for sale in downtown Toronto. It seemed like any other home — from the outside. A two-bedroom row house, near Trinity Bellwoods Park, in one of Toronto’s most sought-after neighbourhoods, priced lower than most homes in the area. While nearby properties can fetch upwards of $1 million, this could be yours for a mere $749,900.

Not that bad … Nothing a little elbow grease can’t polish. (Photo courtesy of RE/MAX)

So on that day, when the owners decided to sell this home at 15 Rebecca St., along with its 100-plus years of history, no one could foresee that it would go viral on Twitter. (Or, maybe that was the plan all along …)

Okay, maybe this 100-plus-year-old home needs more than a little elbow grease. (Photo courtesy of RE/MAX)

And, after CBC reporter Lauren Pelley tweeted about it, the world of social media, had something to talk about for days and days …

But, despite all the fun and ridicule endured at the house’s expense — we have a feeling the expensive house, will allow the owners (and maybe the potential buyer) to laugh all the way to the bank … And live happily ever after.

Maybe a little elbow grease … and a little bulldozer will do the trick. (Photo courtesy of RE/MAX)
