Back On Markets This Week In Westwood

Labels: , , , , , ,

Westwood had a couple back on markets this week...

The Little Holmby home at 10614 Le Conte Ave had been in escrow for about 30 days and returned to the active market this week. Priced at $1,849,000, this still seems like a well price home that will get snatched up in the short term.

The south of Wilshire home at 1260 Holmby Ave had been in escrow for about 3 weeks and also returned to the active market this week. The asking price for this 3+2, 2,200+ sq ft, 7,000+ sq ft lot home is $1,399,000.

What Did That Westwood Little Holmby Home Sell For At 629 Westholme Ave

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

What Did That Westwood Little Holmby Home Sell For?

The Westwood Little Holmby home at 629 Westholme Ave lasted 32 days on the market before receiving an accepted offer on 8/20/10. The home came to the market on 7/19/10 with an asking price of $1,499,000. And then closed on 9/28/10 with a final sales price of $1,260,000. At first glance this seems very low for the neighborhood. And that is somewhat correct, it is on the low side. However, this home is right on the edge of the neigbhoorhood, next to Hilgard (busy street). There is almost no backyard space and a college fraternity or sorority house looked right into the back of the house as well. Additionally, while clean, the house was in original type condition.What is interesting is the MLS states this sales price reflects an all cash, contingency free and tenants in the home. The biggest kicker is the tenant occupied portion of that statement. According to the MLS, the home is a 3 bedroom / 3 bath, 2,509 sq ft of living space on a 8,102 sq ft lot.

What Did That Westwood Home Sell For At 10775 Rochester Ave

What Did That Westwood Home Sell For?

The Westwood short sale at 10775 Rochester Ave lasted 15 days on the market before accepting an offer to send to the bank, waaay back on March 9th, 2010. The home came to the market in February with an asking price of $1,095,000. Because it was under priced for the neighborhood, it received a plethora of offers. I would be curious to know whether the buyer that ultimately bought the home, was the buyer in first position all along. With the property taking about 7 months to close, it's possible the first buyer walked and one of the backup buyers got the house. That scenario is not all that uncommon with a short sale. The previous sale was in 2001 for $765,000. So it must have been a cash out situation that ended up putting the seller in a short sale situation.  The home closed on 9/29/10 with a final sales price of $1,164,900. According to the MLS, the home is a 3 bedroom / 2 bath, 1,822 sq ft of living space on a 6,550 sq ft lot.

Approved Short Sale At 2206 Overland Avenue

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

The home at 2206 Overland Ave., LA CA 90064 received a 9.44% or $76,000 price reduction this week, down to $729,000. Listed on 2/3/10 for $919,000, this is the 3rd price reduction of the current listing term. The property spent about 4 months in escrow, starting in May, only to come back to market in the middle of September. However, the MLS states the home is now an approved Short Sale with the ability to close in 30 days.
According to the MLS, the home is a 4 bedroom / 1.75 bath, 2,054 sq ft of living space on a 6,750 sq ft lot.  In typical Overland Ave fashion, you get alot of house for the money compared to being off the busier street. The home is now asking less than what it was purchased for (875,000 in 2005).

What Did That Westwood Little Holmby Home Sell For At 301 Loring Ave

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,



What Did That Westwood Little Holmby Home Sell For?

The Little Holmby home at 301 Loring Ave., LA CA 90024 came on the market 7/28/10 with an asking price of $2,995,000 and received an accepted offer just 14 days later. The home closed on 9/21/10 with a final sales price of $2,770,000 [SP/SF: $642.99].

According to the MLS, the home is a 6 bedroom / 4.5 bath, 5,017 sq ft of living space on a 13,500 sq ft lot. The stats above include the 1+1 guesthouse in the front. This is the first time 301 Loring Ave has been on the market in 50+ years.  From the street, this home looks like the grand 'Little Holmby' home someone would envision buying in this neighborhood. It sits on the rear portion of the lot, so most of the usable yard is in the front of the house. While this setback does create a beautiful setting in the front, perched above the street, it does limit backyard space. The only real rear yard is a patio area off the living room.  There may have been some updates since the house was originally built in 1931, however, it's current condition is begging for someone to come in and gut the house and remodel.
