Contract on Gatefield Drive

28 Gatefield Drive

28 Gatefield Drive

Reported today, 28 Gatefield Drive, asking $3.795 million, is under contract. Nice house, and a good price for the seller, but I wonder if he thinks it was worth keeping the property in showing condition for 746 days as he slowly worked his price down from $4.650? I wouldn’t.

It’s an Ogilvy listing, however, so at least there’ll be no 10% Buffet Give Back fee.

    i love seeing a house so well maintained by current owners. this one is spotless. a move-in ready home is a rare treat.

    • Yeah yeah yeah, clean floors, no dust under the bed and a million bucks taken off the price: which factor do you think was most instrumental in its finding a buyer?

        well sure, I get that it was the price that brought in the buyer but my pernt is how nice to get the price you want and have it move-in ready. A two-fer so to speak.

    Are you serious about this 10% giveback thing? Ten percent of what, and out of whose pocket?

    • Well no, AJ, I’m not, but it’d be fun to see how many liberal millionaires switched their listings to Prudential to show their solidarity with Warren, wouldn’t it?

    Okay, I wasn’t sure because Buffet, Gates, Soros, Obama and their kind do have a tendency to go off the deep end from time to time; especially in suggesting that money come out someone else’s pocket, which breaks what is, in my opinion, one of the cardinal rules of business: he who gets the idea gets to pay for it, aka, put your money where your mouth is.
