4114 20th St. Implodes

Last sold in November 2007 for $1,513,000, 4114 20th Street is now on the market as a short sale by its Realtor owner for a cool price of $1,150,000.

This 4BR/3BA home has a great Eureka Valley location, and a great kitchen. The rear and front gardens are nicely landscaped, and the master bedroom has sweeping views. The seller-agent attempted to unload the property in late 2008 for $1.7M and then in early 2009 for $1.6M. But now it’s come to this.

The sale has to close by 8/27, so don’t waste time hauling your cash over to 4114 20th. There could be a deal here if you play your cards right.
