Always good to know the back-story on homes that sold in one’s hood. Here’s what I could glean about four that are listed above:

1731 Oregon Street: was on the market in April 2007 asking price $499,000; sold in May 2007 for $523,500 (5% over asking); sold for $437,000 in December 2007. Someone looks like they lost out there…

1106 Parker Street: sold for $427,519 in February 2007; was on market in August 2007 asking price $346,900; sold for $270,000 in December 2007 (there’s got to be an interesting sales story there…)

2526 California Street: went on market in October 2007 asking price $585,000; sold for $515,000 (12% under asking) in December of same year; last sold in December 2005 for $556,000.

1504 Olympus Avenue: asking price reduced to $799,000 in November 2007; sold for $800,000 in December 2007.
