Sales Report: $494k buys suburban-style in Boyle Heights; one-bedroom Eagle Rock house sells for $136k over asking


Pueblo Del Sol home in Boyle Heights

Boyle Heights

  • Asking Price: $499,000
  • Sales Price: $494,000

The former Aliso Village housing project on First Street was demolished more than a decade ago to make way for a new community of affordable apartments and for-sale homes called Pueblo Del Sol, a development of curving streets and cul-de-sacs that would seem more at home in Mission Viejo than Boyle Heights.  It’s a  environment that appealed to a buyer who recently paid $494,000 for a 10-year-old, townhouse-style condominium with three bedrooms, two-car garage and access to a pool, spa and clubhouse.

  1. Full fledged buyers panic.

  2. The person who purchased the Eagle Rock house for only $585,000 got an amazing deal. I have a strong feeling that the days of finding a house for that cheap in Eagle Rock are over and that sale was the last of the good old days.

    • Paying $136k over asking price is an amazing deal? They paid over $700 per square foot. LOL

      • When not very special houses are selling for $1,000 per square foot in Silver Lake this does seem like a great deal. In any case asking price doesn’t mean anything. Sales prices are what count and I think anyone is going to be hard pressed to ever find a house for under $600,000 in Eagle Rock ever again.
