Ahh, gentle Eagle Rock. You could have been profiled in the New York Times this weekend, but you were too busy trying to figure out how to to stop people from accidentally driving through the windows of Swork, your coffee house. (Second time occurred last Monday! Via the NELA listserve: "This is the second time someone has driven into their building, so they are trying to get some heavy barriers put in by the curb.") But given how pleasant Eagle Rock is, a small home with one bathroom, a dead lawn and a price tag of under $400,000 will likely draw lots of eyeballs. Let's inspect: "Great starter home! This 3 bedroom, 1 bath home has approx 1200 sq. ft. of living space. It is on an 8700 sq. ft. flat lot and the garage has been converted into an office. There is alley access to the garage and home. Plenty of room for expansion!" Who knows Hepner Avenue? The home is about 1,157 square feet, the lot size is 8,558 square feet, and it last sold in 2003 for $304,000. Today's asking price: $375,000* and it's a short sale as commenters have quickly pointed out.
