Avon, the local r.e. board, IndyMac and the beach

Here's 934 N. Avon. It was listed for $699,000. Not that you care, but due to a clerical mls reporting error, it was reported as sold yesterday for $547,900. Not hardly. It is in escrow and is set to close on August 5 for much more than that. And for those of you that think the local r.e. boards are useless (now, who thinks that?), it has taken me a cumulative two hours and several faxes just to get the info corrected -- and the list price is still wrong. This has been so frustrating that it's making standing in line at IndyMac look as pleasant as a day at the beach.

    Comp killer for Avon...

    431 N Florence
    2431sf - asking $659.

    Not as cute, but bigger and not next to commercial area...

  3. "Comp killer"? First, the only true comps are sold houses -- this one hasn't sold. Good comps are those properties sold closest in time, closest in size, and closest in distance.

    Also, Anon, if you are involved with this house in any way, you'll want to tell the listing agent to list this on the Tempo mls. That's the one that will get the most Realtor interest because it's the main mls for Burbank. This is now only listed on the L.A./Westside mls.
