And, now, the answer to this week's PriceSpotter asking-price guessing game.
Address: 1218 Conery St.
Asking price: $1,180,000
The skinny: A plurality of y'all (46 percent) were spot-on with the $1,180,000 asking price option for this three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home that was built in 1951. The second most popular pick was the $1,300,000 price tag with 36 percent of the votes, while ten percent figured the not-your-average-Garden District-digs is going for $985,000. Just eight percent of votes went toward the $1 million option. This house, which belonged to the late artist JoAnn Greenberg who purchased it for $233,000 in 1999, was not a hit with some readers. One reader called the place "spiritless" and someone else wrote, "This house obviously is missing out on all the 19th century architectural buyers and also astute mid century fans as well. Other than the somewhat interesting vaulted second floor and location….its a bit of a stinker." But in a head-nod to the bonkers real estate scene, a reader writes, "It might be the best of both worlds for somebody. A Metairie or Lakefront-style house in the heart of Uptown. If there was ever a time to sell something like this at a premium price, the time is now. The market is crazy."
