The low end buzzes along

153 Lake Avenue, priced at $1.395 million, reports a contract after just 14 days — subtract the tine necessary for building inspection and contract negotiations and that’s practically overnight. The owners paid $1.290 just two years ago and don’t appear to have done much of anything to improve it, so that’s a positive sign.

And that’s different from the past “glory” days; this place sold for $1.650 in 2007 and, after some very substantial renovations in 2009, sold in 2017 for the aforementioned $1.290.

I personally don’t like this location at the foot of Lake Avenue or the cramped, narrow structure itself, but at this price level, for a couple looking to be within walking distance of town, I get it.
