38 Carey Road, Riverside, asked $910,000 back in June, 2011, sold now for $715,000. I really like this street, especially (well perhaps only) the side of the street that backs up to Mianus Pond. Swimming, canoeing and, appropriate for this coming winter, it looks like, ice fishing (something Peg in Minnesota’s clients might appreciate, even if they were reluctant to cough up quite this much money for the opportunity). Great spot, nice neighbors, on either side of the street. I think $715,000 for a fixer-upper or even a building lot is a good deal and if I had the money, I’d have been tempted.
In a more expensive area of town, 7 Oakwood Lane has an accepted offer after just 22 days so it’s fair to guess that it’s going for close to its asking price of $1.995. That’s for 1.5 acres in the RA-1 zone, with new house and pool plans already approved. Again, right about where land sales in this area have been selling for.
