Today it seems we're saying goodbye to a couple of old friends.2507 N. Valley
is pending after, sheesh, at least 15 months on the market (with some periods off).
High: $2.249m, Low: $1.799m.
The news comes almost two months after the selling agent dropped this bomb into the listing language:
Subject to short sale approval by bank.
As we have noted before
, the seller paid $1.54m in Feb. 2004, but the "short sale" stuff popped up when the price was at $1.999m. Uh-oh. At something less than $1.799m (we're guessing), a bank somewhere is looking at about a $300k loss on this one.
Now it can be said: The sneaky "price increase" tactic
didn't work here. Two others that have tried that are still looking for action.
UPDATE: An anonymous comment tells us the sale is $370k short.Also working its way off our inventory lists: 710 Manhattan Beach Blvd.
It's also in escrow. This is the townhome that undercut its neighbor when it dropped to $1.249m
a while back. The neighbor (714 MBB) dropped out of sight a while later.
