Hills Coming Up 8's TooPosted on Friday, October 30th, 2009 at 4:13am.
Last week, MBC had a post about 3 separate Sand Section closings, all of which came in near each other in the $800s. (See "Sand Dirt in the 8's.")
Now, 3 sales (new escrows) in the Hill Section all have addresses starting with an 8.
815 2nd (5br/5ba, 4725 sq. ft.), the blue new construction currently subject to a bankruptcy court sale, got a first mention last week in "Bouncing Balls." (Listing may still be viewed while in "backup offer" status.) Last posted at $2.899m, but we don't think these buyers will pay that.
Some might say it was getting near dirt value, but, as with the Tree Section, sometimes people just want a decent house in the 90266 – it doesn't need to be high-gloss. One to watch.
808 Duncan Place (5br/5ba, 3525 sq. ft.) is not huge for the Hills, but does offer ocean views.
Several MBC readers were positively enthused
about the house after seeing it.
Listing began at $2.399m in July and was down a bit to $2.249m recently.
That's some pretty decent action for October.
Speaking of which – to any of our readers headed to Vegas or similar gaming environs, please drop $20 on #8 at the roulette table for your blog author. We can share the winnings.
