Mid-Priced Irvine Home Goes On and Off the Market

snapdragon-irvine-mid-priceAn example of a home that is near the mid-price for an Irvine home is at 46 Snapdragon.* This home, located in the El Camino and Deerfield Park area (92604), went on the market in July for $519,000. Then it was delisted and relisted various times. Maybe this has to do this the information on the listing that states escrow cannot close before December 22nd of this year. The interesting part is that the current list price is an increase of $10,000 from the original list price.

37-snapdragonNearby 37 Snapdragon #20, also a three bedroom, sold in June 2009 for $435,000 or $298 per square foot. And another three-bedroom condo at 37 Snapdragon is currently on the market for $435,000 or $290 per square foot. However, the exterior picture for 37 Snapdragon is not as appealing as the exterior picture for 46 Snapdragon, and the 37 Snapdragon homes are smaller than the 46 Snapdragon home.

Current listing information for 46 Snapdragon:

  • sanpdragon-3Asking price: $529,000 ($322/SF)
