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:
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!
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.
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.
