Late last year, we took note of one sale just east of Highland in the teen walkstreets that radically raised the bar.
The value of a standard-size lot on the small stretch between 16th-20th St. had never, historically, hit the 3's... until the sale at 309 18th at $3.250M just before Thanksgiving. Really, values had never been close.
Now, raising the bar higher: 313 17th St., posting a sale at $3.500M.
Like 309 18th, the sale was arranged off-market late last year. Unlike 309 18th, the sale was not posted to the MLS. So, to date, this sale has been known mostly just to neighbors and the real estate community.
(Disclosure: Dave counseled the seller, but did not participate in the sale of 313 17th. Also, the legal address is 312 17th Place.)
