Work-from-home appeal made these the fastest selling homes in NELA

2021 April Editions Real Estate

Home are selling fast in Northeast Los Angeles at prices well above asking. The median days on market in February was 45, which is two days faster than in February 2020, while the sales-to-list ratio, which compares the sale price to the asking price, was 104%. Still, some homes — like the three featured below — sold faster than others at truly eyepopping premiums. What made these homes uber desirable? They’re perfectly turnkey and, more important, they have detached garages set up for the new work-from-home normal.
