Sometimes, even the zebra and the orange need a little help

When 70 Sumner Road (NY border) hit the market last April at $4.295 million, I predicted that, notwithstanding its "aggressive" price, it would see a quick sale because of its agent's judicious use of both orange throw pillows and a faux-zebra floor rug. It turned out that even those two essentials weren't enough to overcome this northern-Siberian location, and a new broker had to be called in. While the orange and the dead zebra were retained, the price was slashed a million dollars, to $3.295, and it's now reported as pending.

Still overpriced, in my opinion, but I'm no fan of zebra.
