Another builder dodges a bullet

This spec house in the PELINOPOR* district of Riverside was originally listed for $3.195 million but even with price cuts, I didn’t think the developer was going to walk away with his shirt intact. Nothing in this area had sold for even close to $2 million and I doubted that this was the house to break that record. But then a few weeks ago 8 Loading Rock, just down the street and hugely discounted from it’s own stupid price of $3.695, sold for $2.350. That must have inspired the Gods because they sent a buyer to this one and it has now sold for $2.415. Wow. Out of town broker, or need I point that out?

    Once again this proves you intown brokers stink at selling homes (buying homes is a whole ‘nother kettle of fish). I’m going with someone from NYC when I am ready to list and local brokers are uninvited to tour the home.

    Is Nearwater Ln close to Nearturnpike Dr?

    First there was Soho, then came Nopo.

    I realize local brokers occasionally “act stupidly” (I may or may not apologize later for that remark), but to use someone from out of town, priceless.

    Admit it Chris; people want to move north of the post road away from the swamps

  6. I prefer SOVI for “South of the Village”

    I like the new terminology. Adds clarity without condescending explanation.

    The agent was clearly a relocation agent, worse sharks than the Greenwich fulltimers.

    Well there’s PELINOPOR and SOVI…

    Mid country should be “MC” Hammer because the rest of Greenwich “can’t touch this” section of town!
