$100 s/f in So Corona
25073 Pacific Crest St in South Corona is the first legit $100 s/f listing I've seen in So. Corona. There have been a few short sales listed for $100 s/f but this is the first REO listing at this price I've run across.
The house is 3200 s/f and it is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home. It's sitting on a smallish lot of just under 5700 s/f. It looks like the home was purchased new in March 2006 for $605k. It's listed as and REO property for $320k. That's a loss of $285k or 47% in 2 years (less fees).
Most people look at the price and home and are less concerned about price per sq/ft. Us blogheads use the number because it's another way to gauge the decline other than the overused median price. Because most people/buyers are less concerned about the $ s/f they may not think this home is such a good deal. There are currently 14 homes priced under $350k in that tract so this home actually does have competition in it's price range.
Ok, now for some comic relief! Just up the road from the $100 s/f house there is a MOBILE HOME for sale (well technically it's a manufactured home...same thing). 10304 Dusty Lane is a 1440 s/ft 3 bedroom 20 year old "trailer". Yours for $285k! Yup only $35K less than a 2 year old 3200 s/f house. That's a seller with a sense of humor! Actually there are a few of them in that trailer park.
