It’s not all slashing and burning in certain Berkeley and Oakland neighborhoods. Latest “homes sold” data shows that people will pay over the odds if they want a home badly enough.
Somebody other than me, for instance, liked the look of the mid-century modern home at 660 Woodmont (above). Designed by Roger Lee, this 4/2 home with wood ceilings and a “serene, private” setting close to Tilden sold for 0.2% above its asking of $849,000.
In Oakland, 5404 Lawton Avenue, a 4/2 Craftsman bungalow with original detailing and a “magazine quality” kitchen (above) sold for $1,256,000, 5% more than its asking price of $1,189,000.
