Dinner at Eight Star’s 1920s Spanish Revival in Whitley Heights Asking $1.2 Million

6809 Iris Circle, Los Angeles 90068

from Curbed Los Angeles: 

The listing for this 1926 Spanish “atop a highly desirable mound in historic Whitley Heights” informs us that it was once the home of character actress Marie Dressler. Whaddyamean, who’s Marie Dressler? While her name may not be too widely recognized today, during the early 1930s, Dressler was one of Tinseltown’s biggest stars, appearing in such hit films as Anna Christie, Dinner at Eight, and Min and Bill, for which she won an Oscar. Instrumental in the formation of Actor’s Equity, Dressler also became the first woman to grace the cover of Time magazine. Per the description, Dressler’s former residence features three bedrooms, three baths, hardwood floors, domed ceilings, scalloped entryways, wrought iron work, vintage tile, two built-in vanities, eight Juliet balconies, French windows and doors, and a two-car garage. Sited on a 7,900-square-foot lot, it’s asking $1.2 million.

3 Bedroom / 3 Bath  $1,200,000

HOUSE IN PACIFIC PALISADES SELLS $121,000 OVER ASKING PRICE

 

Through careful market analysis, a thorough understanding of the property’s benefits, extensive preparation and touch-up work before going to market, and a well thought-out pricing strategy, we helped the owners of 16163 Anoka Drive in Pacific Palisades generate an amazing result for the sale of their house – 8 offers and a final sale price $121,000 over the original list price.

The strategic plan, outlined above, took a couple of months to execute.  The onset of the plan began with an explanation and the owner’s understanding of the importance of tracking and interpreting the current and recent market trends; then we created a list of the property’s benefits as well as a list of repair/touch-up items; we discussed the concept and benefits of staging the house (these owners opted against staging); finally, the pricing strategy that Jeff recommended was the primary component that generated the success that was experienced.

There is more to pricing strategy than simply picking a price.  In order to achieve optimal results, ie. 8 offers and $121,000 over the asking price, the property should be priced in such a way that buyers and their agents will CLEARLY see the value of what is being offered.  This strategy will typically generate multiple offers.  When a multiple offer situation is created there are a number of benefits to the owner – increased competition over the subject property; owners are negotiating from a position of strength (price goes up versus down from the asking price); the buyers that are making offers feel confident that they are buying a quality property because they know other buyers are vying for the same property; the likelihood of keeping the buyer under contract increases because they don’t want to lose the house to the next buyer.

To date, in 2013, The Cunningham Group has listed and sold 8 houses.  On average, our listings sell (go under contract with a buyer) in 17 days and our sellers net an average of $24,857 above their asking price.
