Where readers ask and we (the community) try to answer.
First…I wanted to say that I enjoy your blog…keep up the interesting stuff. I live by 24 Buena Vista Terrace and noticed that it sold recently. I remember walking through the house back in 2006 when it last sold after it was completely remodeled. I thought it might be an interesting “apple” in my neck of the woods. I think it recently sold for around $3.4M (though not totally sure)…not sure what it sold for back in 2006, though.
Got any good (or bad) info?
Although we’d like to spin this into a recent market success story, there is that damn little asterisk (*) that won’t let us in on the price scoop. We can really only confirm that which you have already said. Back in 2006 24 Buena Vista Terrace, in the Buena Vista Park district, did, in fact, sell for around $2,995,000 * (damn little asterisk ruining all our fun). It was indeed completely remodeled at that time and doesn’t appear to have had much work done this time around in 2008. It was recently originally listed for $3,595,000, price reduced to and sold around $3,395,000 * (damn that asterisk). It spent 95 days on the market, and we did not have the chance to go check it out this time around, so we’re hoping someone else has.
Thanks for the question/tip. Keep them coming, and thanks for hanging out on theFrontSteps. Sorry we couldn’t be of more help directly, but maybe some readers can.

North of $3M for this place seems like highway robbery. It looks like a railroad station.
I’m sorry, but what does the asterisk mean?
Sorry, we should have been more clear.
The asterisk is used in MLS and is placed next to a sales price to inform us that price and terms were not disclosed by seller and/or buyer on that transaction, so we really have no way of knowing exactly what this, or any home marked with an asterisk, sold for.
According to Zillow, it sold on 11/25/2008 for $3,170,000.
