Don’t you wish this would happen to you? The buyer of 37 Tower Road, Riverside paid $6,300,000 on April 12th of this year. On August 3rd, according to Greenwich Patch, it sold again, this time for $7,300,000 to a Mr. Herman Apple Pye! Apparently Pye-guy really, REALLY wanted this place and was willing to pay the new owner a $1,000,000 premium (this kind of thing drives appraisers crazy).
We’re not talking about bidding wars here. These are cases where someone approaches the new owner of a property and says, what’s it gonna take?
How rare is this in Greenwich? Fairly rare, but not that rare. It happens about once or twice per year. The town attracts wealthy people and when they lose out on something, they tend not to take no for an answer…
Other examples where a frustrated buyer approached a new owner and paid a fat premium:
558 Round Hill Road, Greenwich
sold August 5, 2013 for $3,500,000
