Well, I guess ‘recent’ being a relative term. There’s currently a good handful of homes for sale in the Mt. Carmel –15 by my count — really nice ones too, at many different price points — from a comfortable 2/1 for $869K (181 Myrtle), to a gorgeous Craftsman for $1.398M (at 1627 Brewster).
But, so what’s been selling though, you ask? By my count, six Mt. Carmel homes closed escrow, in the last couple months.
And here’s how you can see firsthand the effects that economic turmoil have been having on our microcosm. Because what’s interesting is that most of these homes sold at the mid- to lower-end price ranges that we had typically seen in Mt. Carmel in the last couple years (ah, remember those days when some Mt. Carmel homes went for 1.1M, 1.2M, and even a couple at 1.5M?).
