I'm still pessimistic

Back in May, when 183 N. Maple Avenue hit the market at $2.475 million, I suggested that, despite the name of its owner/flipper being “Optimistic Builders”, the house would encounter rough handling by the market. It dropped its price today by $100,000, but I remain unpersuaded. The builder paid $1.275 for this 1960s home in December, 2018, did a four month quick and dirty refreshment job, and had it back for sale in time for the spring market.

Having misplaced it then, he’ll probably have to wait to fall to roll around. And if that doesn’t work, it’s going to be a long, cold winter.

Last year’s version is here.
