This Week’s “Way To Hang In There” Award Winner!

449 Round Hill Road, Greenwich, reports a closing today at $6,613,000. Start-to-finish, a short eight years!
List: Steve Archino
Sell Jennifer Leahy

Friends, many of us would have either walked away or been fired LONG before this listing finally sold, but not broker Steve Archino! Nope, ol’ Steve hung in there, beginning on that cool, crisp February day in 2011. Now, a short 8 years later, Archino gets his reward, reporting the sale of 449 Round Hill Road, for $6,613,000.

If you’re not in the business, you might wonder why, oh why, would a seller allow a property to hang around so long? The answer is…who the hell knows! but it’s a very common practice in Greenwich. My observation is that sellers in this lofty price range own multiple homes and multiple assets and just aren’t that concerned. They pick up the phone every once in a while, check in with their broker (Any showings lately? Good, ok, keep up the good work!) and then forget about it till next month. As long as everyone’s happy, who cares?

Anyway, this is a good price, and provides further evidence of a back-country market that continues to improve.
