Have real estate agents embraced Echo Park taco trucks as a selling point? At least one has. A newly listed two bedroom bungalow on Montana Street touts the home’s proximity to nearby restaurants, bars and the Taco Zone Truck, one of the neighborhood’s most popular food trucks (4-1/2 Yelp stars) that is often parked about a block away on Alvarado Street. Last month, The Eastsider noted that a house for sale directly across the street from Taco Zone failed to mention its proximity to freshly made carnitas and lengua tacos. In contrast, the new Redfin listing for the house being flipped on Montana Street is not shy about it being located in the taco zone:
An pedestrian’s delight, it is walking distance to some of the best restaurants and bars of Echo Park (Mohawk Bend, The Echo, El Prado, Taco Zone), as well as to the essentials of the grocery story, bus stop, etc.
Of course, at 588 square-feet, according to county assessor records, the nearly century-old Montana bungalow is not much bigger than most taco trucks. After being sold for $150,00 in March, the newly renovated home is now priced at $379,000.
