A mid-country bidding war — no kidding! Plus, some less fortunate sellers

Hunting Ridge.jpg

62 Hunting Ridge asked for $5.395 million last September, attracted at least two buyers, went to contract in early October and closed December 28th for $5.511 million. The owners paid $6.650 for the place in 2004, and dumped a pile of money into it afterwards, adding a pool and tennis court, among other amenities, but kudos to listing agent Ann Simpson and her clients for recognizing reality and pricing it at an appropriate level for today's market.

The owners of 29 Pecksland, now under contract, last asking price $3.495 million, weren't so fortunate: They've been trying to unload the property since 2010, when they asked $5.275. Purchased for $2.3 in 1999, but that was before they blew out the original 1840 structure to 7,000 square feet.

And way up north 42 Lower Cross Road, which began at $6.995 million in 2015, has sold for $3.9 million. Conyers 'Far' just ain't what it used to be.
