5507 wayne lakewood balmoral historic district

5507 N Wayne

$ 1,350,000

96.5% FINAL list price

This property in the Lakewood Balmoral Historic District was originally listed for $ 1,590,000 in March.  After 2 price reductions, the home finally sold at 96.5% of the final list price.  In all, it was on the market for 147 days.

As you can see from the 4 previous homes, when a home is listed AT the right price, it will sell almost immediately.

If it’s priced too high, not only does it sit, but once the right list price is reached, it still takes longer to sell

Note to sellers:

Price your home at the right price from the start!


Remember  —  these are NOT my listings – I’m merely reporting what’s happening in the market.

My goal is to price every listing to sell FAST at the highest price possible – make sure to read recent client recommendations:
