Lickety-Split Flip in Silver Lake

New, 66 comments

The listing copy for this three-bedroom, three bath in Silver Lake touts its "recent restoration." How recent? Well, if Redfin's data is accurate, the house last sold on June 25 for $785,000, a mere four weeks before it was relisted at $1.095 million. Apparently, that brief window gave some flippers enough time to "[strip] away the 1970's vibe and [bring] to life the original 1940's charm," in the words of the listing. Huh--who knew IKEA'd been around since the '40s? The home, which is in the Ivanhoe school district, now features "new stainless steel appliances, granite counters and restored Douglas fir of 3rd bdrm suite and new den/office."--Pauline O'Connor
