What: 4 BA/4BA new construction with 3,500 FSF.
Where: 20xx Laurel Ave., in Minneapolis’ Bryn Mawr neighborhood (just southwest of downtown).
How (much): $739.9k list price
Who: Coldwell Banker Burnet (broker); Steven Gouert (agent)
When: on market 11/16/09
Hard not to notice this dramatic new list — that’s the point!
The asking price — low $700’s — is a stretch for Bryn Mawr, a great, pocket neighborhood between downtown Minneapolis and Theodore Wirth Park on the city’s West side.
Confession: I bought my first house there, in 1987.
Forget about paying what I paid then (don’t ask); prevailing prices now range from high $200’s for a small, starter home to high $500’s, for bigger and/or more updated.
This home is part of a mini-trend of new construction trying to push Bryn Mawr’s range to $600k-$800k.
It’ll be interesting to watch this one . . .
