Just Sold in the Caltech Neighborhood of Pasadena

1532 Rose Villa, Pasadena

We just closed escrow on this beautiful Pasadena home located at 1532 Rose Villa Street, in the desirable Caltech neighborhood. When the tenant decided to vacate, the owners contacted us to put the home on the market for sale or for lease. We listed it for $1,279,000 or $4,500/month, and received offers before the property was even listed in the Multiple Listing Service - that just shows you how few homes are for sale in the Pasadena real estate market!

After one week we had five offers - both for purchase and to rent - and were able to negotiate a final sales price of $1,325,000.

Property Details:
3 bedrooms, 2 baths
1,987 sq. ft. on a 10,261 sq. ft. lot
Built in 1925
