Trinidad's (Almost) $1 Million Home Sells, For Less: Figure 1
1228 Florida Avenue NE

On April 4th, the priciest home in Trinidad was officially handed over to a new owner.

UrbanTurf has been following the story of this renovated six-bedroom home since it hit the market on January 31st. Listed for a record-breaking $926,500, the listing drew the attention of skeptics who couldn’t believe the home would find a buyer willing to pay the almost $1 million asking price. On Valentine’s Day, the price was reduced to $898,400. Five days later, it went under contract.

Though the first contract fell through, the home found a buyer again quickly, without being relisted.

So did the home fetch anywhere near $1 million? The buyer(s) ended up settling on a price of $926,000, but received a credit of $27,780 upon signing, bringing their total outlay to $898,220.

    I'd like to know how it ever appraised for that.

    It didn't have to appraise for that. The buyer would just have to make up the difference, or else might have been a cash sale.

    Ha, was the first buyer the one who was vigorously defending the home on multiple threads? Looks the reality of the comments got to him/her 😃
