Better Shelter's Effie Street Bungalow Sells for Asking

New, 79 comments

This Silver Lake bungalow first made its debut on Curbed back in 2009. At that time, numerous commenters dismissed the diminutive domicile as a teardown, with one critic comparing it to a shanty in a Brazilian favela. Two months later, the news that the home had been purchased for $250,000 by the flipsters at Better Shelter elicited a similarly negative response. Well, what a difference a year (and a few months) makes. After being put through the BetterShelterizer, the former two-bedroom, one-bath, 672-square-foot shanty is now a glossy two-bedroom, two-bath, 909-square-foot lovenest. Listed on March 3 for $599,000, it went into escrow two days later, closing April 4 at a final sale price of $600,000.
