    Sale History (from Zillow)
    02/01/2002: $737,000
    Should work out nicely for the seller.

    Love it, though I’d have to disinfect the Pottery Barn effect out of the interiors. The bathroom is straight out of Wallpaper* though, which is nice.

    Very nice. Even nicer at half the price.

    Nice pick-up, missed that. I do however, still see a nice profit.

    Pottery barn? What’s Pottery Barn about the interior – the furnishings?

    This place is sweet. Pricey though….I’d come in at the Zillow estimate, $1.9MM.

    As someone who uses “Pottery Barn” as a pejorative at every opportunity, I feel compelled to disagree with EH. Nothing PB about the place, unless you’re (unfairly) comparing it to Philip Johnson or something.
    As for people who like to set their own price (or worse, rely on Zillow of all things): go ahead and offer what you want. But don’t whine when you’re shut out.
    Nice place.

    Starter houses within walking distance to downtown Mill Valley are going for 1.5-1.6 M so this price seems ok. Location is good – not great- can’t walk to downtown MV. Price might be high compared to others nearby.

    $1.9 would be 34% below per sq. foot what 366 Lovell sold for 6 weeks ago? I’ve seen Zillow’s pricing algorithm get tripped up by the inconsistent quality of its data – e.g., this house is listed as built in 1951 in the tax record with 3 BR… If this house were a 1951 3BR house it the Zillow estimate would be about right…

    This is a cool house…for about $2.1- $2.2M. $2.5M is a reach.
    Families drive prices up in MV generally and this is not the best family house. Art looks great there, though. I wish them the best of luck.

    ok – What’s missing as a family house in your mind?

    If you want to get top dollars, then create a top dollar marketing campaign and maybe put it on the MLS in Marin & SF. It’s not on either. At least agents don’t have to go to Zillow to find out what the story is.

    Hmmm… That’s wierd. I can get the listing through the public BAREIS MLS site. Link is here.
    Where did you not find it?

  14. Posted by Victor

    I take back the MLS part, but stick to the photos and the flyer you receive when you visit the property.

    As I said, it’s not the “best” family house…it does work and has some great features, but some notable missing features in my mind…yard area off family room/kitchen, flat block, two car garage with direct interior access to house…but what do you want for $2.5 million in Mill Valley. At $1.9 Million it suddenly becomes a better family house…
