How this one slipped through the cracks we’ll never know, but we thought you’d like to see a nice before and after of 838 46th Ave., and get a little scoop. Then help us decide if it sold $65,000 over, $35,000 under, or $1000 over.
Originally listed in January for $1,395,000 this beautiful 3 bed, 3 bath total
remodel rebuild in the Outer Richmond had a price increase to $1,495,000 ten days later. The price was lowered in March to $1,469,000, then 10 days later (still in March) lowered to $1,459,000. The listing eventually expired (technicality, really). Re-listed a couple days after the “expiration” (we’re still in March) at the same price of $1,459,000. It went into contract 10 days after re-listing, then fell out 10 days after that, then went back in 10 days later (puts us at April 24) , and recently sold in May for $1,460,000 (We’re assuming multiple offers to get that price over. If not, the buyer’s agent should be fired, and the seller’s agent commended.) You follow all that?
This is a significant sale for the Outer Richmond, both in terms of price, and type of property for that area. It is also a good indication of the market now versus then (Jan).
So…help us out here. Depending on how you look at this one, it either sold $65,000 above the original asking price ($1,395,000), or $35,000 below the second asking price ($1,495,000), or $1000 above the final asking price ($1,459,000). We leave that to you to decide. Either way, the market put the price right where it should be.
Lastly, in case you were wondering, the “before” price was $795,000 in February 2005.
Regardless of everything up and down on that sale, it is a sweet house!
