As we reported this past November:
Purchased for $2,201,500 in March 2008 on the penultimate floor atop the Ritz-Carlton Residences in San Francisco, 690 Market Street #2301 returned to the market listed for $2,299,000 eight months later.
Reduced to $2,099,000 in February 2009 and then to $1,999,999 that April, the 1,660 square foot two-bedroom was withdrawn from the market that June.
It’s now two years later and 690 Market Street #2301 has returned to the market listed for $1,350,000. Recently rented asking $6,800 per month in rent, but delivered empty at close of escrow according to the MLS, it’s not a foreclosure, nor a short-sale. And if a reader is correct, the buyer in 2008 paid cash.
The resale of 690 Market Street #2301 closed escrow on Friday with a reported contract price of $1,340,000. Call it 39 percent ($861,500) below its 2008 purchase price which isn’t too bad considering the foreclosed upon two-bedroom the floor below sold for $1,050,000 this past March having been purchased for $2,173,000 in 2007 (a drop of 52 percent).
