Sales reported

Older contracts, but closing yesterday. Again, due to the Greenwich Association of Realtors’ new policy of restricting information available to the public, these listings are stripped of all useful details as soon as they’re reported under contract, but, for now, there’s nothing we can do about it.

18 Bryon Road, Old Greenwich, $3.1 Million

11 Hawkwood Lane, asked $2.695, sold for $2.215million.

71 Rock Maple Road, $5.015 million. Owners paid $5,547,830 for it in 2004, poured money into improving it and relisted it in 2010 for $6.425 million. Four years and many price cuts later, it’s sold.

New Listing up off Lake

20 Hedgerow Lane, $4.999.  It looks like a nice place, and Hedgerow is a quiet street, but looking at the pictures of the exterior, the 1978 style of architecture has already grown old. At least to my eyes.

And in Riverside …

 

15 Pierce Road

15 Pierce Road

15 Pierce Road sold in a bidding war, fetching $1.450 million from an asking price of $1.399. Agent Liz Smith priced it intelligently, as I suggested when I reviewed it back in May. Better to undershoot a bit rather than go too far over because in a hot market like Riverside, the buyers will correct it – or even, in their enthusiasm, go a bit higher. And, if you attract multiple bidders, you gain leverage over buyers’ terms and demands. As a buyer’s rep, I love being the only game in town.

Old Greenwich sale

 

46 Park Avenue

46 Park Avenue

46 Park Avenue closed yesterday (May contract)  @$3.075 on a $3.199 asking price. Not my all time favorite house, but the price is certainly within the range for this street and this age house. I was interested to see that, perhaps, we’ve seen some leveling off of prices, at least for Park Avenue, Old Greenwich. The same house sold new for $3 million in 2005, then $2.9 in 2008.

Democrats for Mexicans

Democrat Rep. says, “Our borders are open”, Pelosi announces that “we are a community with a border running through it.” Put the two together and what do you get? Democratic voters. But not the United States of America.

If memory serves, all federal office holders swear to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, not just the president, in which case, we can impeach them all.
