Priced to Sell in Westwood

Two-bedroom condos priced in the $650,000 range have been selling fairly briskly in Westwood. Maybe that’s why Kris Benveniste, the agent on this newly listed Westwood condo, at 1927 Glendon Ave., #301, is so confident.  HIs listing description includes this bold statement:  PRICED TO SELL & WILL NOT BE LOOKING AT ANY OFFERS BELOW ASKING UNTIL 11/3/2008 IF STILL AVAILABLE.

The asking price for this spacious (1,500 square feet) 2+2+den unit, in an eight-unit building, is $629,000.

Turns out Benveniste had a bit of an inside scoop on pricing: He was the agent on a similar condo a couple of doors down — 1917 Glendon Ave., #302 – that closed escrow on Oct. 3 for $639,000.
