Ho-Ho-Holiday Sales in Columbia City

Here are some smallish homes that sold over the holidays. Were the sellers laughing their way to the bank, or were the buyers making smart deals in a slow market?

    I believe that Pearl Street house was originally listed for $579,000 or thereabouts.

    It’s quite possible, if it was relisted. I was referencing a new listing record at the price I quoted, but it may have been cut and relisted. If so, then the time it sold in may be incorrect as well.
