Here are the week’s top price adjustments….
There’s charm waiting to be unlocked at 457 Eastgate Lane (↓$300K to $7.695M), on over two acres in Birnam Wood, but it’s still priced as if it had a guest house, didn’t require much updating, and weren’t so close to the community’s Sheffield entrance.
If Melania really does leave her husband, perhaps the 1980s Italian mausoleum vibe of 1890 Jelinda Drive (↓$600K to $6.3M) in Ennisbrook would feel right, like a little bit of Palm Beach. Then again, given her taste in holiday decorations, it might be too light.
Proof that the “location, location, location” adage cuts both ways: otherwise appealing 1134 Hill Road (↓$400K to $2.995M) is hurt by being adjacent to train tracks and the freeway.
Likewise, the subdued-for-Jeff-Shelton 145 Olive Mill Lane (↓$65K to $3.785M) is right on Olive Mill Road.
789 Park Lane (↑$251K to $5.25M) couldn’t get the time of day when it came on the market in June 2019 for $5.495 million—as a result, the price was chopped twice (eventually to $4.999 million) before the listing was pulled. Sensing opportunity, it’s back with a Covid bump.
120 Chapala Street (↓$100K to $2.299M), right on Mission Creek in West Beach, started out at $2.8 million some 912 days ago. Perhaps the trapezoidal shape poses challenges.
And a couple others worth checking out:
••• 1933 Paquita Drive (↓$251K to $2.999M, above): From this angle, the house looks like it’s sunk into the earth.
••• 475 Barker Pass Road (↓$500K to $3.495M): I
hate love to say I told you so.
