Like any city, Pasadena has better and safer locations than other parts. Overall, this home borders on very nice and desirable areas but I consider Villa to be a busier residential street. As to pricing, it was originally priced at $659,000 and stayed active for 90+ days. When seller dropped the price, it went into escrow within 17 days. Overall, unless you really loved the home, I believe there are better values here in the price range you are looking for.
Please contact me if I can be of assistance with your home search.
This home on 1865 East Villa Street in Pasadena got an accepted offer and they are now under contract. They went into escrow on 7-7-2012 and the Seller is looking for "B"ack up offers. Are you still interested?
