You Win Some ($15,000) You Lose Some ($1.5m)

Well, it took a year but what was at the time the most expensively priced house in Berkeley at 683 Santa Barbara Road finally made it onto last week’s “Homes Sold” list. Trouble is it sold for 30% less than the owner originally wanted.


Another, more modest, home on the list sold for above asking price — not something you see very often these days. 1461 9th Street (above), a renovated 2/1 bungalow with landscaped garden near Fourth Street, went on the market for $635,000 ($586/sq ft) a few weeks ago and sold for $650,000, no doubt making one seller very happy.
