More than 8 months ago, MBC took note of two brand-new homes, built by the same developer on a split lot, with the same layout but different design features.
We dubbed the pair, 3307
and 3309 Poinsettia
, the "Twins in the Trees
." (Click for details on 3309 via Redfin.)
It also seemed obvious that The Twins were starting much too high. Both homes are 5br/5ba, 3250 sq. ft. – pretty much the max on 4640 sq. ft. lots – and both started at $2.795m
. Newbies aren't generally going for those kinds of prices these days. So we put the subject up for discussion in a poll.
MBC's pricing polls often – but not always – appear to generate quite bearish results. This time, the vast majority of voters erred high.
Though most were skeptical of that start price, fully 70%
thought the Twins would go for more than $2.2m
. (See "Poll Results: Twins in the Trees
That doesn't seem likely. 3307 Poinsettia (pictured) has now made a deal, but the last list price
. If this one goes through, we won't have a closed price until, perhaps, year-end or early 2009.
Kudos appear to be in order to the 27%
of voters who said the price would fall below $2.2m. (That was in March – do you even recall how you voted?)
And congrats are in order, as well, to the builders, who are among the very few sellers to make a deal this November.
