36 Montgomery Lane SOLD – $2,825,000

EXHAUSTING After 112 days on market, with a list of $3,295,000 – I am beginning to think that the summer is the best time to get a deal…unless the location is Riverside… This home in 2008 was on the market for a crazy price of $8,950,000 – eventually reduced to $8,295,000 in the same year,…

18 Welwyn Rd – Riverside – SOLD – $2,309,250

The buyer and seller must have gone back and forth several times before coming to this random number…or there may have been a couple of bidders…but with the last list price at $2,495,000 the first scenario is more likely… …and at $185,750 less than asking price, this is a perfect example that if you’re interested…

557 Round Hill Rd – SOLD – $3,275,000

557 Round Hill Rd  My opinion, is that someone got a good deal – 4 acres, lovely setting…the house has a shadow of an 80’s vibe – embraced with cool neutrals – it works. I had written about this home when it was reduced from $4,100,000 to $3,800,000 – saying that it was a good…

26 Stag Lane Closed – $2,600,000

26 Stag Lane – Closed for basically Land Value – 4.34 acres Citi Mortgage is probably a bit relieved to get this off the books, and in foreclosure, no doubt they took a bath. The owners, had it on the market for $4,795,000 in 2008 after only owning it for a year. They bought it…

14 Sandy Lane Sold – $1,842,000

FINALLY! The history is long and boring…in it’s current state with a 1979 renovation – it missed the wave in 2006 when it was listed for $2,975,000. It was reduced the same year to $2,699,000. In 2010, it was again listed for $2,400,000 (in denial), in 2011 it was listed at  $2,350,000 (still in denial)…

291 Stanwich Rd – SOLD – Over list $1,800,000

It was listed for $1,625,000 and on the market for 54 days…pretty quick sale for a home built in the 20’s, with low ceilings and in need of total renovation – unless the new owners are more interested in the equestrian features, I predict that this may be a tear down. It is situated on…

Summer is a good time to find a house…

It’s Open House on Sunday July 28 – I’m in Old Greenwich Saturday morning, so if you want to beat the crowd, let me know: deb.halsey@raveis.com Fairfield Ave across  from Binney Park Here’s a great opportunity to own a piece of the Old Greenwich pie, for a great price. It’s not perfect, but the price…
