Deal is Done on Elm

By Dave Fratello | February 2nd, 2008
Now we have a final sale price on 2413 Elm$1.575m.

This large remodel (4br/3ba, 3300 sq. ft.) began July 11, 2007, at $1.799m. It crept down to $1.625m before going into escrow in early December.

The closed price is -$224k/-12% from start, and works out to $477/PSF.

As MBC noted in "Shaking the Trees," when the price was still $1.699m:
This is not a bad house. It's quite large (4br/3ba, 3350 sq. ft.) and has some charms as well as some challenges. Some of the design and remodeling are adequate or nice; some feel dated (it's just an 80s thing).

We don't love the impossible entry – a downhill hike along concrete steps – and the master bath needs an expensive overhaul. The location, second house off Marine, is a big minus, even if you don't notice it once inside.
This is the fifth home in a row in the Tree Section below $2m to close for 12% or more below its start price. In fact, the last 10 homes to close in the Trees have closed for 11%-28% below their start prices, including 3 new homes in the $2m+ range.

So homes are selling, and adjustments are happening with those that do sell.
