Just time to report on the small amount of activity reported this morning before I head off to Belle Haven to check out Gideon’s $12 million listing – or I will if I can get past the gates.
41 Deepwoods (Old Greenwich, across from Perot Library) has an accepted offer after 475 days on the market. Last asking price was $1.895 million. I showed it way back in 2010 at $2.395 million but neither my buyers nor I saw much value at that level. You might not think knocking $500,000 off a home’s price would affect a buyer’s decision but surprisingly often, it does. Go figure.
Six Guinea Road is back up for sale, “renovated” and priced at $2.950 million. It sold for $2.085 in 2010 after starting at $3.7 in 2007. I thought the house was rather tired back in those days, which probably explains its lengthy snooze on the market. If so, then the 2012 renovations may help in that regard. Of course, there’s still the street’s name to deal with.
