Which is increasingly infrequent as we move into the summer, but such as it is, here it is:
226 Riversville Road, asking $1.175, reports a pending sale. The owner, an agent, paid $1,012,500 for it in 2015 after it had sat on the market for a year, redid the kitchen, painted it and did a nice job making it look good. If she did all that to flip it, she probably didn’t make out all that well, but then again, paying just 1/2 a commission allows a little extra room, and the profit will probably pay a private school tuition or two, so nothing to sneeze at. Nice house.
11 Maher Avenue is also pending. Asking $2.295 million, it was on the market just 32 days, so it’s probably a safe assumption that the sellers are getting close to that price. Maher’s a popular street with good reason, although I find it busier than I’d prefer because it’s got Brunswick at one end, but that’s never hurt prices here and people who live there profess to love it (and often prove it by staying put for years). As an aside, Zillow shows a 2007 sale here for $2.7 million or something, but that’s not true – error on the on-line town tax records. The last sale was in 2010 at about $1.6, and improvements have been made.
