sfnewsletter’s walk down Lake Street

Today on sfnewsletter we did a “Walk Down Lake Street”, to share some insight on what’s happening in that area.

125 and 129 Lake

These two properties are literally in the same building, and have seen entirely different results.

125 Lake is a 3 bed, 2 bath, 2-level condo, with zero parking, but a top-notch location.

Listed on 4/25/07 for $1,150,000, it received a pre-emptive offer, which was declined, was marketed for a couple weeks, had an offer date, received multiple offers, and sold over asking ($1,227,000) and spent a staggering 13 days on the market.129 Lake, also a 3 bed, 2 bath, zero parking, but middle floor unit, is not doing so hot.

It hit the market on 9/06/07 for $1,195,000 (surely priced compared to 125 Lake), had a price reduction to $1,079,000, and is getting stale. Why? Square footage? Middle Unit? Parking? Price? Market?
