What Did That Westwood Home Sell For?

The Westwood home at 2118 Selby Ave., LA CA 90025 lasted about 2 weeks on the market before entering escrow on 3/12/14. This 1920's traditional has been upgraded and expanded for a move-in type condition. The extra large gourmet kitchen with stone counters, a full compliment of appliances and large center island is one of the nicer features of this house.  I also like how the large kitchen leads into the family room and outdoor living area (outdoor deck/patio pictured to the top left). Last but not least, there is fun loft area in the garage that is great for a kids play area or work space.

On 4/09/14, 2118 Selby Ave closed about 5.8% under the asking price at  $1,785,000 |$628 $/sf|.  According to the MLS, the home is a 4 bedroom / 3 bath, 2,843 sf of living space on a 5,399 sf lot.

What Did That Westwood Home Sell For At 2006 Malcolm Ave

What Did That Westwood Home Sell For?

The Westwood home at 2006 Malcolm Ave., LA CA 90025 lasted about 1 week on the market before entering escrow on 3/7/14. This Spanish style house was built in the 1920's but has been completed remodeled throughout...even added on significantly if I were to make an educated guess. With only a ~5,400 sq ft lot, which is one of the smallest in the neighborhood, this didn't have too much backyard space. However, the owners took over the driveway and made that into a nice lounge and outdoor area. Converting the garage to bonus living space anyway, this doesn't interfere with cars trying to go back and forth into the garage. Looking back into the listing history, the owners took a very quick stab at the market in 2012 at a list price of $1,349,000. But the owner pulled it off the market after only a week. I bet they are glad they waited a couple years as they got maybe $300,000 more than they would have received in 2012, based off that asking price.
On 4/09/14, 2006 Malcolm Ave closed about 5.9% over the asking price at  $1,640,000 |$597 $/sf|.  According to the MLS, the home is a 4 bedroom / 5 bath, 2,748 sf of living space on a 5,410 sf lot.

What Did That Westwood Little Holmby Home Sell For At 10485 Lindbrook Drive

What Did That Westwood Little Holmby Home Sell For?

The Westwood Little Holmby home at 10485 Lindbrook Drive, LA CA 90024 lasted about 54 days on the market before accepting an offer on 3/04/14. According to the MLS history, this home originally came on the market on January 9th, 2014 for $2,500,000 and accepted an offer just over a week on the market. After a week in escrow, the house came back onto the open market where it spent just under 3 weeks before another accepted offer. Maybe a glitch in the reporting, but that lasted only a day before falling out. However, at this time, the price was raised from $2.5m to $2,695,000. Two weeks on the market at $2,695,000, the owner accepted another offer.  Besides being in Little Holmby, one of the bigger appeals of this house is the almost 4,000 square foot of single level living. This is hard to find in Little Holmby. Plus, almost no steps up to the front door. The finishes were dated throughout the interior, so could be considered a little fixer'ish in that regard.
10485 Lindbrook Drive closed on 4/16/14 with a final sales price of $2,690,000 |$703 $/sf|. According to the MLS, the home is 4 bedrooms/ 4 baths, 3,825 sq ft of living space on a 7,615 sq ft lot.

What Did That Westwood Home Sell For At 10715 Rochester Ave?

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

What Did That Westwood Home Sell For?

The Westwood home at 10715 Rochester Ave., LA CA 90024 lasted about 1 week on the market before entering escrow on 3/24/14. Designed by master architect John Byers (c.1941), this 1940's 2 story cape cod had been completely remodeled throughout with higher end finishes and is in move-in condition. My favorite feature about this house was the back yard. And it could possibly be one of my favorite backyards in Westwood, south of Wilshre, that I have seen in a long time. The yard features an expansive covered patio for poolside dining and lounging, brick fire pit, BBQ area, sparkling pool, large lit up Hollywood sign and a grassy yard.

This home had a very broad appeal to the area buyers with the way it was staged, the finishes and style of the home and the fantastic backyard. Thus allowing it to be in the top 20 of price per square foots sold in all of Westwood going back to 2001.

On 4/10/14, 10715 Rochester Ave Ave closed about 9.33% over the asking price at  $2,400,000 |$987 $/sf|.  According to the MLS, the home is a 4 bedroom / 4 bath, 2,431 sf of living space on a 6,833 sf lot.

What Did That Westwood Home Sell For At 1936 Thayer Ave

What Did That Westwood Home Sell For?

The Westwood home at 1936 Thayer Ave., LA CA 90025 lasted about 2 weeks on the market before entering escrow on 3/7/14. This home is situated on one of the most desirable streets in the south of Santa Monica Blvd section of Westwood. I believe location was the big contributor to the huge demand on the house and drove the price way over the asking price. This 40's Tudor home has some decent curb appeal, moderate updating and was in clean and livable condition. But in my opinion, wasn't anything overly special inside, that alone drove the price six figures over the asking. The floor plan was slightly less desirable than your average house with only 2 bedrooms and a backyard on a lower level than the main part of the house.  But as I said, the street location was great. And what do "They" say....location, location,location.
On 4/10/14, 1936 Thayer Ave closed about 9% over the asking price at  $1,414,000 |$874 $/sf|.  According to the MLS, the home is a 2 bedroom / 2 bath, 1,618 sf of living space on a 7,184 sf lot.

2144 Midvale Ave Receives 2nd Price Reduction

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

The Westwood home at 2144 Midvale Ave, LA CA 90025 received a price reduction of 8.54% or $126,000, down to $1,349,000 |$/sf 582|. Listed February 27th, 2014 for $1,525,000, this is the 2nd price reduction of the listing term. The 20's Tudor style home has been remodeled throughout and is in move-in condition. If you like huuuuge master suites, then this home is up your alley. The rear master suite in this home dwarfs about any master suite in this price range I have ever seen in Westwood. It's more like the size you would see in the bigger $3-4+ million dollar homes in Little Holmby, Bel-Air, Brentwood, etc..
According to the MLS, the home is a 4 bedroom / 3 bath, 2,319 sq ft of living space on a 6,750 sq ft lot.

Listed 3 weeks ago for $1,988,000, this the 1st price reduction of the current listing term. This home was purchased mid last year for $1,050,000 ($51,000 over the asking price) as a total fixer/teardown type property.

Needless to say, this is a completely renovated, almost like new construction home and is in completely move-in condition.

441 Dalehurst Ave Receives 1st Price Reduction

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

The Westwood Little Holmby home at 441 Dalehurst Ave LA CA 90024 received a dramatic price reduction of 12.52% or $400,000, down to $2,795,000. Listed 3 weeks ago for $3,195,000, this the 1st price reduction of the current listing term. This home feels more like a large townhome, with it's three level floorplan. The house is dated throughout and would be considered more of a fixer vs a teardown with it's odd shaped lot. Not that you couldn't tear it down and build. But at this price point and with the lot going up the hillside, your probably not going to see alot of developers, flippers or owner users looking at it to teardown. The last Dalehurst house that sold with 50+ offers had a larger and much more flat lot that is more desirable to build new on. This backyard is built into the hillside and has some patio space and a small pool, pictured below.

According to the MLS, the home is 4 bedrooms/ 4  baths, 2,822 sf of living space on a 7,273 sq ft lot.
