4151 E La Paloma Drive sold for $715,000 in 2006. At that time it was listed as 3300 square feet – with the Floor Plan people shown as the source of the sf.
And it was in vintage 1976 condition,
And after paying $715k the new owner spent a whole bunch more and remodeled it and listed it for $1,000,000 in 2009. Meanwhile, it had somehow grown to 4000 square feet, and now the owner was listed as the source of the sf.
And it looked like this,
A very nice improvement, but it didn’t sell.
So it was reduced to $899 then $799 then up to $839, etc. And it went through a few listing agents along the way.
Meanwhile the square footage stayed at 4000 sf, but suddenly the Assessor, as in Pima County Tax Assessor, was listed as the source. Baloney, that’s just not so. As a matter of fact the assessor shows the square footage as 2530 sf. And they always did.
Is there any question that the shenanigans with the square footage have hindered, rather than helped, the sale of this property.
And that brings us to the present and latest new listing for La Paloma Drive. Yes it’s been listed again. It turned up today asking for $350,000 as a short sale (can you believe it, half what it sold for in 06, before the remodel).
Meanwhile it shrunk, it’s now listed as 2530 square feet, exactly what the Pima County Assessor has shown it to be all along.
Make sure you know what you’re buying.
