On Friday we closed escrow on two great homes in Northeast LA - 4450 Yosemite Way in Glassell Park and 4757 Avoca in Eagle Rock. Both homes came on the market at the same time - Yosemite Way for $549,000 and Avoca for $539,000 - and it was very interesting to see buyers' reactions to these two different homes.

The sellers purchased it in 2007 and transformed it from grandma's house to a modern home with a comfortable floor plan.

Buyers loved the amount of space in this home, and how well-cared for it is.
