We brought this sweet 1926-cottage on the market in March, and after receiving multiple offers, put it right into escrow.  It took four months to navigate the short sale process.  We received short sale approval in July and were able to complete the escrow process with a final sales price of $290,000.  We look forward to seeing how the new homeowners transform this house!

Just Sold - 2035 Ridgeview Avenue, Eagle Rock

Alright, Eagle Rock homeowners, we have proof that our real estate market is getting better. This is truly an amazing sale - and sets the new highest price per square foot for a three bedroom, two bath home in Eagle Rock since 2007! 2035 Ridgeview Avenue, located near Occidental College, features three bedrooms, two baths, completely upgraded and remodeled with style throughout:

2035 Ridgeview Avenue, Eagle Rock

We came on the market at $649,000 and received several offers. After a week we raised the price (causing many eyebrows in the community to do the same) to $724,900. Soon after that we opened escrow, with the requirement that there be no appraisal contingency because there were no comparable home sales like this home. No one thought it would appraise at the new asking price - little did they know what we were actually in escrow for!

2035 Ridgeview Living Room

This week we closed escrow and can finally reveal our sales price - $760,000! That is $562 per square foot (the average price per square foot for a three bedroom, 2 bath home in 2011 was $329). Not only that, but it did appraise for that amount. This shows what a great house with high quality finishes in a great Eagle Rock neighborhood can do.

2035 Ridgeview Kitchen

The whole neighborhood will miss our sellers, but we are also gaining a fantastic new member of the community! And of course they may decide that Eagle Rock is the place to be (as we all know it is...) and work their magic on another home here.

Just Sold! 4745 College View Avenue, Eagle Rock

4745 College View Avenue, Eagle Rock

After 5 months and two different buyers, we have successfully closed escrow on this Tudor-style short sale in Eagle Rock. We brought this 2 bedroom, 1 bath home on the market at the end of August in 2011 and received multiple offers. After a couple of months we got short sale approval from the lenders but the buyer backed out of the sale. Luckily, we had a buyer who couldn't get this home off his mind and he quickly put an offer in. We went through the short sale approval process a second time and finally closed escrow!

Features of this home include eastern views over Eagle Rock, vaulted living room ceiling, original light fixtures, hardwood floors, a terraced back yard, and character throughout. Congratulations to our seller, and we welcome the new home owner into the neighborhood!
