Our series “Snatched Up” is more than just reporting on homes that have sold. The reason we write this particular series is because we are interested in what home characteristics the market is showing an affinity towards. It’s given that the market likes good prices and a good locations, but what about styles, palettes, and finishes? Sometimes we’re surprised by what we find.
By focusing on homes that sold quickly, at or near their asking prices, we are able to discern what the market is demonstrating a liking for. In this edition, we’re taking a look at 58 Cityview Way in Midtown Terrace.
58 Cityview Way - Not a 10 on curb appeal but does a good job working with what it's got, and has a tasteful, neutral palette.
This 3 bedroom, 1 bath home came on the market on November 20, 2008 for $800,000. It boasts ~1,150 square feet, has a landscaped yard, 2-car tandem parking, views of the ocean from the back yard, and was built around 1955. It went under contract in just 8 days and closed today (22 days on market) for $795,000, which is 99.38% of its asking price.
