Well there’s a lot of competition for this title, but my vote’s going to 54 Rock Maple, off of Stanwich. The seller had Fran Erlich list it for $12, 450 million way back in 2007, and if Fran didn’t tell him that she could hear us agents laughing as we left the house, she should have.
Four years, a half-dozen agents and many price cuts later, the house is finally under contract today. Its last asking price was $4.995 million and after this much time on the market looking like an unwanted dog, it is probably selling for even less than that. Had it been priced at say, $7.5 million back in 2007,I guarantee you that it would have sold long ago, and for far more than $4.5. Silly. Yet still, the buyer’s getting a good deal, so only one-half of this equation makes no sense.
