21 Indian Head Road Finally Sells

Hmmm…for an allegedly “good” market, I’m not thrilled by some of these reported selling prices, especially when a Riverside property turns out to have sold for way less than most brokers might have imagined.

21 Indian Head Road, Riverside, is just such an example.  It started at the perhaps ambitious (Chris Fountain might use a more unkind word) price of $4,700,000 back in April, 2012. It was reduced twice, down to $4,100,000, before finally closing today at $3,750,000, or nearly $1,000,000 off that first asking price.

This is a really nice house, completely (and fairly recently) expanded and renovated, and I’ll bet most brokers figured the eventual sale price would begin with a “4”. It’s a fact that asking too much in the beginning will result in getting less than you could have in the end, but still, this one’s surprising.

The good news: Sellers are willing to “cut till it sells”, and the buyers are out there, ready to pounce.

21 Indian Head Road, Riverside (corner of Willow Rd), last ask $3.995M, closes today at $3.750M.

Yep, this story just came in, hasn’t been confirmed yet by my Apple insider.

UPDATE

“Sources tell me” (I love that expression) there was a firetruck parked outside the store all day yesterday, so I’d guess this is a fire sprinkler-system issue….

Apple Store at  356 Greenwich Avenue, "closed by order of the Town"?  Say, wha?

Two That Finally Sold

Well, that took a long time, didn’t it..

331 Round Hill Road and 24 Dawn Harbor Lane are finally off the market.

The first one has closed, the second has reported “accepted offer, contracts”, and both took years to sell. Something wrong with either house? No! In both cases, it was the price, but try telling that to the average Greenwich home seller. Just human nature, I guess, but it really doesn’t have to be this way. The whole process should take around 60 days, start-to-finish.

331 Round Hill Road, started at $4.1M, Sept. 2010, has now sold for $1.9M, a bargain.

Chris Fountain Sales Streak Continues

It appears that selling broker Chris Fountain, and listing broker Patte Nusbaum, have put together a deal and now have an accepted offer on 19 Thunder Mountain Road.

How long can this selling streak keep up? How long before Chris and I swap cars? Be afraid, my friends, be very afraid.

19 Thunder Mountain, off Greenwich's Riversville Road, $3.375M, now has deal.
