Price Updates- San Diego East County

Major & minor changes

Another price increase to ponder. We still see them from time to time, but far more decreases of course.

3680 Citrus Street La Mesa 91941:


Déjà Vu! Yes, we featured this home Nov 11 at a much lower price. You may balance the benefit of adding units in the large back yard against the noise of the freeway and potential discomfort of a somewhat run down neighborhood. Why the price increase? Not certain but a recent accident in which a car flew off the freeway into the neighborhood has prompted Caltrans to build a barrier and it’s possible that it will give some privacy and a reduction in noise. An upscale new housing development is growing about 1/2 mile away.

Bank owned foreclosure to be sold as is. A fixer with room for expansion. Includes 1 car garage, dual paned windows/slider, kitchen skylight; unknown square feet, heating, cooling, fireplace… Redfin Savings: $5,997*

Does it seem odd that a seller would change a price by less than 2%? Is this a gimmick just to get noticed? Am I the only one annoyed by gimmicks? What about those prices ending in …999? Am I asking too many questions? confused0006smiley-anim.gif

    Cute little guy scratching his chin. Gimmicks are very annoying mostly because they’re insulting and break the rules of fairness (unless they are exceedingly clever). Their nuissance factor is right up there with cliches…ha ha.
