But what there was of it is here.
2 Owenoke in Riverside asked $2.075 and went to contract in 23 days at $2 million even. That’s in line with recent sales of comparable houses in this section of Riverside but this was perhaps even more tired than those others. If you want the low point of the Riverside market it can be seen here, because it sold for $1.7 million in 2010 and just look at it now, with nothing done to it in the intervening 30 months. Someone did well.
79 Valleywood, asking $895,000 reports an accepted offer but this one has been pretty much a done deal since it hit the market two weeks ago. Discussed then, it’s a great house.
42 Mead, convenient to I-95 for those wishing to sleep beneath the underpass, asked $849,000, dropped to $699 eventually and now has a buyer. Owners paid $560,000 in 2003 but added a new kitchen and other improvements since.
19 Desiree, off Stanwich, announces another price reduction and is now asking $4.195, down from its more optimistic 2008 asking price of $5.595. Sellers paid $4.9 million for it in 2004 so this is looking good from the perspective of price. Not a bad house and it’s got access to the Mianus River Park but it’s just a tough sell trying to explain to buyers that a particular house hasn’t sold in four years not because its a bad house, but because it asked too much when it was first listed. Tough but not impossible but still: try to avoid this with your own home.
And finally, the EOS Photography Award of the Week goes to 16 Heronvue Road. Inviting at any price, at $1.299 this one just screams “welcome to the Bat Cave!”
