Contrary to what you might believe of rapacious capitalist pig Realtors, I do not enjoy the financial downfall of any of our good citizens.
Therefore it is a mix of sadness and curiosity that I report the Landmark Home at the entrance of Brand Park and Library is on the market as a short sale. Short Sale is also known as “pre-foreclosure”.
The listing agent reports the home has “Deferred maintenance, leaking roof, balconies and windows, stucco damaged, chimney cracked, etc..” . There is 5900 square feet of living space not including, presumably, the unfinished 1500 sf on the third level. There is also a 3 car garage and a pool. You can have all of this for $1,499,000.
The devastated homeowners are not willing to show the home- expecting that eager buyers will make offers sight, unseen. While this might happen- it is a special home- will the offers be at a dollar value that a bank would approve? I doubt it, but let’s hope I am wrong.
Below is the MLS information provided by the listing agent. It is remarkably short on any details that would fetch a top dollar price.
