The obstinacy of the sellers has been on full public display since Sept. 13, 2006, when they began at $1.769m and then never budged.
The sellers wanted their $1.769m in part because they paid almost $1.6m in June 2005. Though they sought a 12% premium only 15 months later, surely they just considered that to be normal appreciation that the market would recognize in time.
For a home in a nice location with great curb appeal (as well as 4br/4ba, 2500 sq. ft.), the sellers almost won their bet, but then they didn't.
The new price is $1.699m, down $70k of the $185k extra the sellers had sought. More importantly, they're finally saying they might be ready to deal. (A good thing, because buyers may still think they're high by $100k-$250k.)Another dawning:
Over at the oft-referenced 758 14th St.
in Arbolado Court (in order, see here
), the sellers are now down to $1.799m
We are slowly approaching a list price equivalent to the $1.695m they paid last July 21.
It's progress, in that we've now seen almost $200k chopped off asking, but it's still possible that buyers are saying "no, thanks" because they don't think the market has moved up at all since last Summer.
