Woodside dropped its price to $2.9 million a year ago, and the fact that it’s sat so long since then suggests that that drop was not sufficient to meet market approval. Still, $2.9’s an improvement over the $4.995 attempted between 2007 and 2009, and even the $3.550 that was affixed when this property returned to the market in 2011.
On the other hand, the owner of 45 Farwell continues her brave defiance of market forces and today has raised her unsold home’s price from $7.995 million to $8.5. This fits in with the history of the house: it sold for $5.150 million in 2002, sold again, to the present owner, for $3.850 in 2010 and then, after some renovations, placed back up for sale at $8.250 in April, 2011. Showing the same disregard of market timing then as she does now, the owner increased her price to $9.150 in November, 2011. When that didn’t work, she began a slow retreat, culminating at $7.995 this August. But you missed your chance, and now you’ll just have to pay more to wrest this lovely home from her possession.
