Preston Way, Between Walgrove and Glendon. Maybe someone sold their home in the area around that time.

Help the community by answering this question:


Yes. Been here 30 yrs. A single family house was worth from $180,000 to 200,000. Two hundred thousand is probably a safe bet.

You got it. But they will have to have roughly the same sf and bd, bth, style amenities, etc.. I can tell you if you haven't already got an answer.

That is a difficult question to answer.

I am wondering why you need this information that dates back more than 10 years. 1994 was during the last down turn in Los Angele real estate prices.

Unless the Multiple Listing Services has records that go that far, one would need to search the public records for properties in your area and selecting those that sold during the time period you are requesting.

It might be difficult to find as properties probably have sold since.

All the best

my mom is selling the home and my dad passed away in july 1994, we were told her capital gains and tax basis would be based on the homes worth at the time of my dads death.

If it is a legal matter, i.e. marital distibution of assets, disolution of a partnership it will be necessary to hire a state licensed or certified appraiser to prepare a "retrospective appraisal". The appraiser will try to ascertain the physical condition of the property through old photos, news articles etc. and then assemble sales data from that period.

Hi Jean,
I would need more detail on your home, bedrooms, baths, upgrades, lot size, etc. to narrow down the comps.
