What Did That Westwood Home Sell For?

The standard sale turned short sale home at 2227 Benecia Ave LA CA 90064 finally closed this week after many many days on the market. After spending most of 2010 on the market, starting as high as $975,000 and receiving 4 price reductions, 2227 Benecia Ave closed on 2/9/11 for $819,400.  According to the MLS, the home is a 3 bedroom with a loft +2.5 baths, 1,895 sq ft of living space on a 5,850 sq ft lot.

The seller has attempted to sell this property several times since their purchase in 2005 for $1,090,000. In 2007, they lasted 121 days on the market, starting at $1,279,000 and ending at $1,195,000. Then in 2008, they tried for 89 days on the market at $1,195,000. At the end of 2009, a 74 day listing period with a final asking price of $1,038,000. And then starting 10/12/09, a listing period of 169 days, ending at $975,000.

In any market, there are always tough homes to sell. And this looks to be one of the those houses. Style, finishes, lack of rear yard landscaping, non-traditional master bedroom having a loft, showing condition, condo building overlooking the backyard have all played some part in why this house didn't sell quickly. Chasing the market down with price, definitely didn't do the seller any help either.
