Westwood REO Bank Owned Home Back On Market

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

UPDATE: Home falls out of escrow this week and is back on market and available for offers/purchase.

A rare bank owned single family home pops up in Westwood just south of Wilshire. The home at 10650 Rochester Ave LA CA 90024 had previously been listed as a short sale seeking approval back in May of this year. After taking an offer to the bank, it looks like after many months the agents were unsuccessful at getting the bank to approve the short sale and the bank foreclosed on the owners. This REO is now listed with an asking price of $1,100,000. According to the MLS, the home is a 3 bedroom / 2 bath, 1,803 sf of living space on a 6,500 sf lot.

What Did That Westwood Hills Home Sell For?

The traditional home in Westwood Hills at 11200 Homedale St, LA CA 90049 lasted just 2 days on the market before accepting an offer on 7/7/11. This Westwood Hills home was listed as a short sale and needed lien holder approval in order to close. However, it looked to be one of the shorter short sales I have seen with acceptance and close of escrow being just over 3 months. On 10/26/11, 11200 Homedale St closed about $45k over the asking at $1,239,000.

What Did That Westwood Little Holmby Home Sell For At 854 Thayer Ave

Labels: , , , , , , , , , ,

What Did That Westwood Little Holmby Home Sell For?

The Westwood Little Holmby home at 854 Thayer Ave, LA CA 90024 lasted approximately 152 days on the market before accepting it's final offer on 9/13/11. During both the 2010 and 2011 listing periods, there were several accepted offers (escrows) that turned out to be unsuccessful at closing. Even though the home is very clean and in livable condition, most people would consider this home a fixer with it's current condition. Most likely needing upgrades to all the systems as well. A few things that potentially contributed to a difficult sale was being a fixer and needing lots of work, but the topography of the downward sloping lot with the backyard/pool much lower than the house (down a couple flights of stairs) also isn't as desirable a feature. If you look at the attached photo, the subject property has the orange pin. Where the orange pin is, that is the deck off the main level of the house. Then you have to go down that flight of stairs to a patio area and then down another flight of stairs to the pool. At the end of the day, I think the sales price indicates a good deal for the new buyers in one of the most desirable neighborhood locations to be in. 854 Thayer ave closed on 10/19/11 for $1,475,000.

According to the MLS, the home is a 5 bedroom / 4 bath, 3,570 sq ft of living space on a 7,490 sq ft lot.

Photoless Westwood Home Gets Price Reduction | 2055 Greenfield Ave |

Labels: , , , , , , ,

The Westwood home at 2055 Greenfield Ave LA CA 90024 received a price reduction of 5.51% or $70,000, down to $1,200,000. Listed 74 days ago on 8/02/11, this is the 1st price reduction of the listing term. Now I am not normally very critical on my blog, but 74 days on the market and the agent (who is actually the owner) has yet to post photographs on the MLS/Internet. How can you expect to sell a home without posting photos on the net???  With 90%+ of home buyers starting their home search on the internet, how can you ignore that segment of the market?? Granted Westwood does very well in open house traffic, but that is not an excuse to not properly expose your property....ok, rant over.

  According to the MLS, the home is a 4 bedroom / 3 bath, 2,162 sf of living space on a 6,750 sf corner lot.

Previous listing periods go back as far as 2008 and 2009 where the home had started with a list price as high as $1,598,000.  Because this is a short sale, current days on market is irrelevant at this point because of the subject to lender aspect to this sale. This home had shown being in escrow (pending lender approval) since March 28th of this year and then showed a back on market status on the 12th of October.  

According to the MLS, the home is a 3 bed / 3 bath, 1,488 sq ft home on a 6,075 sq ft lot.
