2342 42nd Ave., a 3 bed, 3 bath single family in the Outer Parkside.
What I don’t like is the fact that in August of 2006 this property was listed at $1,095,000, then in March of 2007 listed at $899,000, now it is listed at $1,295,000. If it sells at $1,295,000, I’m packing up and moving to Mexico, because that would be just plain wrong. It should sell around $775,000 or less. That is a fair price. It has no ocean views, is hardly high-end, literally shares a fence with a school, and could definitely use some “modernizing”. Other than that, it is a great house…seriously. This is one of the hottest markets in the city right now, and this house is just going to get Stale.
I know the price has been set by the seller, so I can’t hold it against the Realtors, but if that’s the price they want, they might as well put it on Zillow as their “Make Me Move” price, save the agents some time, and never plan on moving.
