We're calling bullsh-t on this Great Deal Alert. As covered before, Echo Park real estate agent Ken Shapiro likes to send out emails that notify readers of a Great Deal Alert. In this case, Shapiro's Great Deal is one-bedroom, one-bath home at 2913 Reservoir Street that's listed at $399,000. The home, which is 688 square feet, last sold in 2002 for $232,000. It's a short sale (listing here). We'll give you $37.50 for it, Ken.
"OK, ok, here is the cutest one bedroom house in Silverlake and, yes, it is a killer good deal. It actually shows with the city as a two bedroom and technically it is. But it is probably best for someone who only needs a one bedroom and a bonus room for whatever. Or, it could be a two bedroom for sure. In addition it has a shed in the back yard that can be a great studio or office. Also in the back yard is a wonderful deck that is great for entertaining. House is only 700 sq ft on a small lot, but it is amazing.
This thing is a classic Silverlake bungalow with little archways, hardwood floors and brick floors in the kitchen and bathroom. It has a cute little yard in the front with a white picket fence. It has two car off street tandem gated parking. And best of all is its amazing location, which is right off Silverlake Blvd on a quiet little side street about one block north of Sunset.
And the best thing is the price.... $399,000 ! Check out the pics below and jump on it before I put it on the MLS.
