Well, accepted offer anyway. 55 Oval Avenue reported an A/O February 2 but was returned today. I always thought this house looked quite attractive and at an asking price of $745,000, it’s an affordable spot in Riverside. But something happened. I haven’t tallied these things up recently but it seems to me that we’re seeing more and more accepted offers fail to bloom into actual sales. If so, I’d guess it’s due to the buyers’ inability to get financing or, as discussed below regarding Carpenters Brook, a short sale lender refusing the bid.
