A Dropout Sells Off-MarketPosted on Thursday, February 25th, 2010 at 5:00am.
That's interesting in part because Agnes quit the market in early November, as MBC noted at the time in "A Pair of $2m Dropouts." Speaking of Agnes and one other listing in the story, we said:
Perhaps buyers will get another crack at them after the Super Bowl.In fact, the buyers made their move a couple of weeks before that, in late January, while selling another home in MB.
Let's reach back for a refresher on Agnes, which drew some oohs and ahhhs the couple of times we mentioned it here. From our MB Market Update for 7/31/09:
1811 Agnes (4br/3ba, 3425 sq. ft.) is on perhaps the most isolated street in the Trees, opening down a hill into a European-style courtyard. In fact, the old world stylings – mostly from a mid-90s remodel – are more serious here than in a hundred newfangled homes that claim an Italian or French style.The home was never open to the public, and only rang up 105 DOM at $2.295m. But that was enough to make an impression, as it made a deal 3 months later. Final sale price: $2.150m.
We're still waiting for a bunch of other holiday-season quitters to return to the market. It's starting to be questionable whether many of them will.
Maybe they're all just making behind-the-scenes deals like 1811 Agnes. Or maybe they should be.
