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
Listed for $1,279,000 - Sold for $1,325,000

Just Sold in Pasadena: 250 S Hill Avenue

250 S Hill Avenue

This exquisite 1919 vintage Spanish Colonial Revival home designed by the noted architectural firm of Marston & Van Pelt has been resurrected as a hip urban retreat. Original details are respected and enhanced with modern upgrades and tasteful designer style. Located on a gated lot in the prestigious CalTech area of Pasadena.

This wonderful home had immediate interest - we had over 100 people at the first open house. Listed at $1,399,000, we received 13 offers and closed with a final sales price of $1,610,000. Due to today's lending environment, we had to have three appraisals of the home's value done. We met each appraiser and walked them through the home, discussing its features and upgrades. It appraised at the sales value each time.

Congratulations to our sellers! We welcome the new homeowners to the neighborhood.
