Happy to help...
I showed the house a few times, and thought it was not particularly impressive. Trendy decor and moderate quality construction, not comparable quality-wise to some other homes in the neighborhood. It had tons of trim work and flashy finishes, but that all seemed to be rather "pasted on" to an otherwise average - though enormous - house. At its final sales price, it was a decent value on a per square foot basis, however.
14536 Stonegate initially listed in August of 2007 at $935,000.
The price was reduced in October 2007 to $899,900.
That listing expired in February of 2008.
They re-listed in May of 2008 with a different company for $850,000. (As though a different company would somehow magically sell the over-priced property. Let's not pretend otherwise, OK? The broker wasn't the problem. The price was the problem.)
Here's where it gets weird.
In June, they lowered the price to $800,000... and then RAISED the price in July to $900,000. (Hey... that's an idea... the house doesn't sell in almost a year... so let's raise the price. Huh?)
That listing then expired in November 2008 at $900,000.
They then re-listed again with the initial listing broker at $800,000 and got a contract within 15 days. They then closed on January 30, 2009 at $755,000.00.
Hope this info helps.
