Just Sold in Eagle Rock: 1522 N Avenue 45

217 newland Street, Highland Park

1522 N Avenue 45 was only on the Eagle Rock real estate market for a short time before we put it into escrow. We received four offers and negotiated the final sales price to $577,500 – 17% over the asking price of $499,000.

The seller converted the 1929 duplex into a lovely single family home with new kitchen and baths, new flooring throughout, fresh paint, and more. The large, flat yard provides plenty of room for gardening, entertaining, and has a one-car garage with attached studio. Clearly this was just what buyers are looking for!

Just Sold in Eagle Rock: 2815 El Roble Drive

2815 El Roble Drive, Eagle Rock

This charming Eagle Rock home is as close to hacienda ranch-style living as you can get in the middle of the city! Rare, even for the interesting homes we have in Eagle Rock, this two bedroom, one bath home is known in the community for its massive cactus garden. We listed this home for $499,000 in December and after a few weeks on the market received three offers within days of each. We negotiated a final sales price of $505,013.

This is a classic tale in today's Northeast LA real estate market. We have seen multiple times over the last few months, buyers waiting, waiting, waiting to make an offer - and when they finally do, other buyers have done the same! This results in multiple offers and often a sales price over asking price. There are some incredible opportunities in today's local real estate market, but with prices on the rise, buyers need to act quickly!

Just Sold in Eagle Rock: 5245 La Roda Avenue

5245 La Roda Avenue

We brought 5245 La Roda on the market in August and quickly received multiple offers.  Unfortunately, the buyers with the winning bid decided not to move forward, so we brought it back on the market - and received multiple offers AGAIN. Today's real estate market is very interesting, and we are seeing these situations over and over.  There just are not enough homes for sale to satisfy all the buyers looking!  5245 La Roda is located in a very desirable Eagle Rock neighborhood, and has many original features, including a Batchelder-style fireplace, refinished hardwood floors, many original windows, formal dining room, and a full bath complete with hexagonal tile, pedestal sink, and built-in vanity.  Congratulations to the new homeowners, and welcome to the neighborhood!

Just Sold in Eagle Rock: 5353 Kincheloe Drive

5353 Kincheloe Drive, Eagle Rock
We just closed escrow on this 1950s ranch located north of Hill Drive on a quiet cul-de-sac.  This was a short sale, and we were able to help our clients navigate through the listing process and the short sale approval maze to successfully close escrow.  We put the home on the market in December, received several offers and opened escrow in the beginning of January.  It took about four months to get approval from the bank, and we closed escrow one month after that.  If you would like more information on what a short sale is or want to discuss how the process works, give us a call at 323.243.1234
