Rickety, Burned Silver Lake Shack Sells for $176k Above Asking

New, 10 comments

Usually fire sales mean big discounts, but not when it comes to real estate in Silver Lake. We first saw this charred pile back in September, when it was asking $399,000, and we had a sneaking suspicion that it would sell for more. After all, clear away the debris and what's left is a 7,909-square-foot lot and views to the Hollywood sign. And yep: the house has just sold for an impressive $575,000. That's about $60,000 more than the median Los Angeles home price and this isn't even an actual, habitable home. Still, it's a price break compared to other Silver Lake houses, which have a median list price of $858,000, according to Redfin. Now to wait and see what will rise from the ashes of this "likely tear down."
