Real Estate Corner What Sold In Your Zip Code


How did 2017 fare for local real estate? Records show that homes went for home pretty hefty prices.

 When houses are sold the selling price becomes public record. What prices don’t necessarily reflect are the effects of family deals (mom sells to son at a deep discount off the market rate) or if there are private mortgages held in addition to a main mortgage. For example, the records say Mary and Tom bought a house for $400,000 and took out a mortgage from a bank. But the real price of the house might have been $600,000. In this case, the seller agreed to hold a second mortgage of $200,000 making the real selling price $600,000. The true sales price listed on public records, therefore, often do not include private mortgages as in the case of Tom and Mary.

According to public records, 232 Beach 147th Street sold for $900,000; 160 Beach 139th fetched $740,000; and 145 Beach 145th sold for $2,435,000. All these sales were in November.  In 11693, recent sales included 84-16 Beach Channel Drive which sold for $660,000; 311 Beach 85th Street closed for $495,000 and 303 Beach 90th sold for $450,000.
