Last month the most expensive home sold in October 2019, was 2521 Harmony Place, La Crescenta. This Briggs Terrace family home was originally listed for $1,199,000. It sold in just five days for $1,220,000, 21,000 over the asking price. Most La Crescenta home sellers are allowing for about a ten to twelve day marketing period prior to accepting an offer. This seller listed with a real estate company which does not do much more than MLS entry. This seller negotiated offers. I am certain this five bedroom, three bath La Crescenta home could have sold substantially higher. Traditional real estate marketing includes agent hosted open houses and a bit more time on the market to give all potential buyers an opportunity to view the home.
MLS REMARKS READ: Welcome home to Brigg’s Terrace. One of the most sought after neighborhoods in La Crescenta. This 5 Bedroom, 2 Bath home is full of charm, character and updated amenities. Enjoy the quiet and character of a formal Living Room. With refinished peg and groove oak floors. Or relax and entertain in the centrally located Great Room with soaring vaulted ceilings and new wide-plank oak hardwood floors. The gourmet, dine-in kitchen includes a Sub Zero refrigerator, double ovens and lots of storage. Just off the Kitchen and the Great Room with sliders you’ll enjoy a shaded rear patio and private backyard. Also, just off the Great Room is a 3/4 bath and Laundry Room.
If you need a little separation in your living space, enjoy the master bedroom and additional large bedroom in the rear section and three more in front section of the home. What I love about this home: The location on a quiet street just steps from Two Strike Park and award winning schools. A five bedroom home in move-in condition, in Brigg’s Terrace is a rare find.
“Millennial homebuyers are no longer a trend on the industry horizon. In fact, they are the new, first-time homebuyers of today. However, only about half of recent millennial buyers were satisfied with the number of options of available homes in their market or price range. Affordable housing continues to be a growing issue. 43% of those surveyed indicated they couldn’t afford to buy a new home or are concerned they won’t be able to.”- Frank Martell President and CEO of CoreLogic
