It’s true, we missed it when the apples to apples sale of 1470 Noe recently closed escrow (hey, it happens). But luckily a reader calls us out (and we’d expect nothing less). Purchased for $1,865,000 in January of 2007 (asking $1,949,000 at the time), closed escrow on 3/27/09 with a reported contract price of $1,850,000 (asking at the time).
Considering the current market a two year “push” might not seem so bad for this single-family Noe Valley home. But do keep in mind it’s also an effective four year push in terms of appreciation as Mr. Alou paid $1,875,000 for the house in March of 2005.
