There seems to be another wave of delusional sellers hitting the MLS again. Maybe it's because it's spring, maybe they are hearing about 50% increases in sales numbers and interpreting that as a 50% rise in price, maybe there's a carbon monoxide leak in their house. Who knows, I just know I'm starting to see more and more of these.
Here's the latest one in the areas I'm watching. 140 Trakenher Pl, Norco. This home is in Norco Hills. It has 6 bedrooms, 4.5 baths and is 4313 s/f in size. It's a nice looking house but the back yard is basically dirt. The home was purchased in 2006 for $878k. 3 years later, after one of the biggest real estate crashes in history this guy thinks he can still make a profit on it. The asking price is $1.15M. WTF?? Why are agents taking these ridiculous listings.
Check out the appraised values;
| Low || Middle |
It looks like the average middle value is about $500k. And I actually think that's probably about right. Priced at $500k this home would sell.
Here's delusional seller #2. Also in Norco Hills but on the Corona Side. 300 Cross Rail Ln. This is a bigger home, with 6 bedrooms, 5 baths and 5659 sq/ft. This home also looks very nice from the front. The realtor didn't put much effort into the listing. No pictures and no description. This home was purchased in late 2005 for just over #1.2M. He now has it listed for $1.3M.
What are the apprasials on this one? Well apparently the seller doesn't what you to see that! No surprise because they would probably be around $600k (or less). This house does have a couple of model matches and a couple that are just slightly smaller listed near by . All of them are between $500k and $600k
