A few years ago one of us (George) and his wife decided to sell their large house in the center of Toronto. With only one of their six children living at home, now was the time. But who in this age of smaller families would want our house? To our surprise, it sold in 20 minutes for 25% more than the asking price. A childless couple who lived 20 miles away bought the house because they were sick of commuting into the city!
