Another Try on 33rd

By Dave Fratello | June 16th, 2010
Sometimes when a listing quits and re-lists, MBC provides the requisite scolding and asks what is really such a change in the "new" listing, except (perhaps) the price.

It's a little different in the case of 763 33rd (5br/6ba, 3825 sq. ft.), a newer (2000) Spanish on a nice, flat, neighborly Tree Section street.

Yes, the listing just quit May 21, and here it is back as of June 14.

Last price: $1.945m.

New price: $1.899m – a small step down.

Same agent.

Bogus re-list?

On this one, you decide. There's a significant change from the last time your blog author saw the property.

Gone are the owners, who were quite settled in earlier this year. And in came the stagers, who have outfitted the home to their idyllic standards.

If the owners moved out, that's a change, right?

We'll still note that the listing began in early January for $2.097m, ran nearly 150 DOM and is now down $198k/-9%.

The home's now marked up just 10% from its Aug. 2003 acquisition price of $1.718m. For those of you wondering if MB's still living in 2004 prices, 33rd is hinting "yes."

33rd offers a lot of comfortable house, but no yard. (The patio's great for grown-ups.)

One bedroom is tucked away in back on the first level – good for in-laws or an au pair, if that's your style.

The kids' bedrooms upstairs are almost luxury suites, more than enough space for busy teens. The master's plenty big, though its view of the refinery had to be strategically blocked by shoji screens.

Bottom line: 33rd is back, maybe more ready to make a deal, re-list or not.
