[Update: 11/5/07: We're putting this back on the top of the front page for one very simple reason, an update. Two offers were received the day it hit MLS.]
Not for the squeemish, 2201 Baker hits the market again, and our reader says, “… may be hazardous in areas. REO, banked owned, sold as-is with no seller disclosures…Is presently on UMB [Unreinforced Masonry Building] and Historically significant (exterior) lists….”
It has also gone from 15 bedrooms and $5M+ asking in 2005, to 0 (zero) bedrooms and $2,490,000 asking in 2007. It’s still 5000+ square feet, but just WHERE did those bedrooms go?
Opportunity knocking for someone, that’s for sure. Last recorded sales price, $2.2M in 2004, and it had 12 bedrooms then. Hmmm….
[Update: We're feeling generous, surf is not good yet, so why not go ahead and spill all the beans, at least that we found.
Last sold $2,200,000 on 8/31/04
Listed for $4,400,000 on 9/18/04 (that would have been a great flip!) and expired.
Re-listed, same agent, for $5,270,000 4/21/05...didn't sell.
Which brings us to where we are now. Fifteen less bedrooms, new agent, half the price, all the same headache, and one helluva 'n opportunity for the right buyer.
