220 N San Rafael Ave Pasadena: Most Expensive Home Sold July 2019

The highest-priced home sold in July 2019 was 220 N San Rafael Ave Pasadena.  The Richter Estate was listed for $6,885,000 and sold for the asking price in twelve days. The sellers bought this home in 2008 for $3,600,000.  Before their purchase, it had been on and off the market for three years without selling. Asking prices ranged from $3,000,000 – $4,000,000.  Kris and I viewed this exquisite home on a Pasadena broker’s caravan, and I am not surprised that it sold so quickly.
