Nothing of note on open houses today so I’m off to attend to other matters, but here’s what little Greenwich real estate news there is, so far.
32 Carriglea in Riverside sold for $4 million. I wish this hadn’t started at $4.9 million in 2011 because I had a buyer for it at $4 million back then, but the owners were pretty adamant about their price – until they weren’t. Nice house, good location, a very nice one-acre yard.
Over in Belle Haven (or close to it – I always have trouble determining the actual boundaries there, but somewhere between the sewer plant and the guard house) 26 Broad has slashed its price from $7.950 million to $7.750, so watch for buyers to flood this one with offers now that they can finally afford it. It did start with another broker in 2010 at $9.250 million but that’s irrelevant, since the market’s response clearly said that it wasn’t worth that much. For that matter, I was surprised when this sold in 2007 for $6.450.
In Cos Cob, 31 Dartmouth Road, asking $1.7 million has an accepted offer after 83 days on market. After paying off the mortgage placed on this property in 2007 it would seem that the seller will have to show up with cash at the closing table but cutting one’s losses is often a wise, solid strategy.
