Traditionally, this time of the year is when far fewer homes come to market. Especially in an election year when many buyers and sellers have a “wait and see” attitude. This and the upcoming national holidays of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s usually make for some of the slowest months of the year. But don’t tell that to the last few 90402 home sellers and buyers: The Pence Hathorn Silver sale of 702 21st St was the highest price ever paid for a land-value sale. Ever!
It sold for $2,650,000 which works out to $296 per foot on for an 8,949 sq. ft. lot. There were eleven (11) offers! A home that was listed on 18th Street two weeks ago went into escrow at $200,000 over asking and there is a land-value home listed on the market on Alta near Ocean Ave. listed for just under $2.3 million or $260/ft. Some colleagues have commented that they think the Alta sale could go as high as $314/ft. – a significant increase over the pre-recession and often quoted days of $250/ft.
