Here’s the snapshot:
1463 W Sunnyside
99% list price – sold in 6 days
2102 N Fremont
99.4% list price — sold in 6 days
5426 N Lakewood
101% list price – sold in 14 days
Reported to be the oldest home in Lakewood Balmoral Historic District – it will be renovated by its new owners.
2131 N Sedgwick
93.1% list price – sold in 12 days
5507 N Wayne
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:
