Time to trundle Mama off to the Witherell and sell the house out from under her

Granny's kitchen

Granny’s kitchen

The low end market – under $1 million is hot – no inventory to speak of and lots of buyers, which means almost anything will sell, in any condition.

23 Mianus and 18 Annjim, $979,000 and $895,000, respectively, both report contracts today and with all respect to the late owner of AnnJim, a jurist I admired, his house was, to use a technical real estate term, a real POS. Gone in nine days nonetheless, as is everything in this category. So if an adorable senior citizen in your family is still occupying her bungalow, tying up capital that rightfully should be yours, now’s the time to get her out of there.

In another price range, but the Riverside equivalent of “low end”, 26 Meadow Road finally reports a contract. It started at $2.495, far too high for this house (that’s not just my opinion, it was the market’s judgement) but once it was marked down to $1.999 it found a buyer. I really liked this house and its neighborhood, but $2 1/2 million was stretching it.

    the beauty of greenwich is today when ol’ beverly hills up there gets his teeth knocked out for being such a pompous ass, whereas years ago he’d be able to hide behind winthorpe the butler….

    contrast that with today where the butler is likely miguel and the teeth-knocker-outer is probably a cousin.

    I must be slow or just plain stupid. I think the house on Annjim looks cute. Someone’s first place. I even like the kitchen cupboards. Add new appliances. Keep the retro formica counters. Why is it a POS?

    All these houses look very nice from the pictures.

    Actually the house on Mimosa asking in the high 9’s is still for sale. Seems like a good buy, or not?
