Last year I wrote quite a bit about prices dropping in the Palisades Riviera. Although we have seen some slight stabilization lately, 1136 Corsica Drive shows how far the market for high-end new construction dropped. This 6,800 square foot Mediterranean villa detailed with fine qualities and design, featuring a gourmet kitchen, vaulted ceilings, his and hers baths, and lush landscaping complete with pool, spa and barbeque debuted on the market in January of 2008 for $9,275,000.
After being leased in October 2008 for $35,000 it is now listed for sale at $6,495,000. This is a classic example of what happens when a seller doesn’t understand market reality and tries to catch a “falling knife” as opposed to adjusting to the market quickly. The current price properly reflects the market in that area and it should garner serious interest.
