It has been a story of on-again, off-again over at 3309 Pacific
(4br/5ba, 3500 sq. ft.) since 2005.
The home has been for sale in parts of each of the last 6 years. (See "Going for 6
.") Sometimes a deal posts, but doesn't stick.
In late July, MBC celebrated the listing's cementing of a deal (see "3309 Pacific is Lucky in 6th Year
Or maybe we shouldn't say "cementing," since that deal came apart.
The home is back once again at $1.249m
, the same price seen on the previous 2 listings. And this time they swear they mean to make 2010 the last year it's on the market:
Seller motivated to sell by the end of the year, ergo the price! You gotta see this one!
One slight impediment to selling Pacific has been removed – tenants are now out and the home's vacant. Buyer's agents motivated by a little extra scratch will appreciate the 3.0% offered by the seller, in a town where 2.5% is standard. (At full price, that's almost a $6,250 bonus.) Perhaps the property will be shown just a bit more as a result.
The home's still a tough nut to crack, the best explanation for why it's perennially for sale but hasn't seen a change in title.
We've already asked once this year: Is 2010 the year for 3309 Pacific to finally change hands?
Now, by the seller's self-imposed deadline, the clock is ticking rather loudly.
