Four houses are for sale in my immediate neighbourhood, three on my block and one in the next block. Each one is a different age. None are selling at the time of this writing. They are good representations of the variety of houses in the Dunbar area.
4085 West 31st is a former demolition, now a luxury home marketed at $7,680,000. To the left of it is a 1950's home (similar to the original 4085), marketed at $4,888,000. Both are on 53 feet lots.
Across the street is 4058, built in 1941 and completely remodeled in 2010 and like new inside. Its price has been reduced to $3,499,000. The lot is 33 feet wide.
On the next block is 3942 built in 1990, also on a 33 feet lot. Its price is $3,180,000. (Update November 17: this is now sold.)
What we are missing in this listing is a pre-war original. There is one on 32nd Avenue, built in 1931. The house at 3908 was listed for $2,450,000 and sold fairly promptly within the last month.
Of these 5 houses, which ones will be "tear-downs"? Which ones will be rentals? Which ones will be occupied? Which ones will be second homes? Which ones will be re-sold? Those are the current questions in the Dunbar area as the leaves continue to fall.
