Two big sales closed last week, both for substantially less than their original asking prices. Though the sellers of these Cole Valley/Parnassus Heights and Buena Vista/Ashbury Heights properties were probably a bit deflated, I’m sure the homes’ buyers ended up feeling pretty snappy. Here’s how things went down:
226 Edgewood is a 4BR/4BA home (see photo) that hit the market at the end of October 2010 for $3.5M. The sellers did a price reduction in early December, resulting in a $3,150,000 list price. An offer was accepted shortly thereafter, and the final selling price was $2.9M.
Over in Buena Vista/Ashbury Heights, the 4BR/3BA home at 893 Ashbury came on the market in September 2010:
The initial list price was $1,795,000, and the sellers made a couple major price reductions in the ensuing months. The sale closed last week for $1,385,000. Seems about right for a home with no garage.
