GONE IN A DAY – Again!

1252 Windsor PlaceA few days ago, I wrote a post about a house in Ortega on Longfellow Street that sold in a day — well, 21 days to be exact, and in this market, that certainly feels like a day! Sales that happen that fast are few and far between.

 This morning, I found another house that went under contract almost immediately (21 days) after being listed. Located at 1252 Windsor Place, this is a 1927 renovated home with a pool at the end of a quiet cul de sac in Avondale. It has 3BR, 2.5BA in about 2,600 square feet. Designed by Marsh and Saxelbye, this home features mediterrean architecture with a new tile roof and detached two car garage with bonus room above garage.1252 windsor pool The list price was $499K and was priced at about $191 per square foot. As soon as it closes, I’ll write a post to let you know what the selling price was.

I emailed this house the day it was listed to a customer who’s looking in the Avondale area but since they have a home to sell, they weren’t in a position to secure this great deal.

Thanks for reading!  If you’re thinking of buying or selling in Avondale, Ortega or Riverside, be sure to subscribe to our blog so that you get the hottest news as it happens!
