(Try this link – it still has pictures up, as of this writing): 34 Wescott Street, Riverside NoPo, just sold for $730,000. I had to look Wescott Street up on the map, but it turns out, I’m on it frequently, I just hadn’t noticed the name – it’s the cut through from behind McDonalds to Sheephill Road.
Judging from its pictures, it’s not at all a bad little house, and shouldn’t require all that much money to bring it up to date. Mind you, spending a whole lot on this house, this location, wouldn’t be very smart to begin with, but there’s certainly room to invest a modest amount.
People in Maine would be sobbing hysterically if they saw what this kind of money buys down here but then, people in Maine don’t work on Wall Street. That makes them doubly lucky, I suppose.
