Super Bowl Sunday is traditionally a slow day for open houses in the real estate business, and today is no different. So we’re taking a few minutes instead to look at one of the constants of the Verona real estate market these days: price cuts.
Six homes have had their asking price cut in the last two weeks, and two of them are Claridge condos. The largest, a two-bed, two-bath 7th floor apartment in the Claridge II building, came down by $20,000 last week to $245,000. In the Claridge I building, a one-bed unit on the second floor with one and a half baths is now $164,900, down $9,600 this week.
The price of the one-bed, one bath condo at 17 Wedgewood Drive #81 was cut $12,600 this week to $159,900. The second-floor unit has been on the market for half a year.
And finally, three freestanding homes. 306 Claremont Avenue is a house with a rental apartment over a four-car garage. The asking price is now $424,000, down $10,000 this past week. The listing says the house needs work. If you need move-in condition, there’s 49 Fells Road. It’s got three bedrooms and two and a half baths and the asking price is now $725,000, down $14,000. Or consider 74 Sunset Avenue, with four bedrooms and one and a half baths. The asking price is now an even $500,000.
