At least the owners here on Sumner Road adjusted quickly to market realities

 70 Sumner Road

70 Sumner Road

70 Sumner Road has sold for $2,962,500, a nice sum, but not the $4.295 million it original asked when it hit the market back in April of last year. Still, the owner didn't hang on to it forever, as the owners of some overpriced homes do: she dumped one agent and took three price cuts in less than a year, and presto! She's rid of the place.

Back when this was new,  I predicted (with tongue in cheek) that this house would overcome its location on the Bedford border and its "aggressive" pricing and see a bidding war break out because of its exuberant deployment of the Orange, the Zebra, and even a modified version of the Chair. That didn't happen, but I notice that its last iteration shows the stager doubled down on the Orange, so perhaps that's what did the trick, rather than its million-dollar price cut.
