The listing for 32 Oval Avenue has just expired. It’s on a decent street, not a bad-looking house, and at $1.180 million, not burdened with a totally unreasonable price, so what happened? Looking over the listing (I missed the open house, I guess), I notice that there’s only one bathroom in the house, and calling it the “master bath” when it must be shared with two other bedrooms doesn’t really make it a master bathroom.
I’ve pointed out here before that there were lots of houses with just one bath in the Riverside I grew up in and the kids all seemed to turn out well. My best friend Chase Carey shared one bath with his parents and two siblings in a small house on Summit Road and he’s gone on to be Rupert Murdoch’s top man and a big wheel in Hollywood, just as a for instance, but that was then and these days, I think this house requires at least one more bath. I don’t know if there’s room to add one but if not, I suspect a major price reduction will have to happen before this sells.
