Welcome to the MASH where we gossip about current real estate listings.



Last week, I posted this 3+1 bedroom, 2 bathroom row house on a 14 x 95 foot lot at 61 Shirley Street in Little Portugal.

It looked like a REALLY well looked after house that had no apparent issues other than the crack in the concrete in the backyard...

And the fact that there was no kitchen sink in the first floor.

Turns out, as some readers pointed out, many families only cook in the basement.  So, my question is, if you don't cook upstairs and you decided not to put in a sink because of that, then why bother with the stove and fridge?  Why not make that another living space?

Regardless, it was a house that could be move-in ready, or it could be a complete redo.

It was listed at $549,800.

I thought it was priced low because it was so close to the train tracks, but that it wouldn't be an issue and the house would sell closer to $635,000.

Turns out, it had been on the market for a few weeks prior with an asking price of $649,900 so this was a price drop.

And it sold on Monday...

For $545,000.
