It’s good to see 7 Hendrie go off to a buyer because it’s a creek neighbor of mine, with inferior views, so its final, successful asking price of $2.395 million is encouraging. It started off at $2.650 but much as I’d have cheered a sale at that price, wasn’t very likely.
19 Montgomery tried $4.750, came down to $4.495.
36 Montgomery is that failed spec house, another one of the Tsoi fiascos, that was priced all over the place, from as high as $8.950 million (absolutely insane) to $5.490 (also stupid) to, finally, and after foreclosure, $3.295. Patriot had $3.4 in debt on the place but the current seller bought the paper at a discount, so I’m sure they’ll make out. Okay house in many respects but up a very steep driveway, a master bedroom suite that was impossibly small and failed fixtures in very bath – don’t know whether Tsoi bought knockoffs of name brands down in Chinatown or what, but there’s something wrong when this much brass goes bad. Anything under $3 million is probably a decent buy here.
59 Upland Road sold for $3.6 million in 2007, was asking $3.295 this time around.
