40 Indian Field Road reports an accepted offer and its listing shows just 22 days on the market and an original asking price of $775 . All that’s good news for the seller, and the listing agent did nothing wrong, played no games here, but because the house was off the market from late May until November its actual history won’t go into the data base when Greenwich real estate sales are complied. In fact, this property sold for $765,000 in 2008, the owners installed a new kitchen and baths, refinished the floor and painted, then placed it for sale at $975,000 in May, 2010. As noted, that listing expired last May so the clock’s been reset and we no longer will know that the actual days on market were 753 and the original price was 20% higher than the last asking price.
So be careful when viewing statistics from our GAR.
