While in some ways it doesn’t really matter, it’s hard not to get hung up on the fact that this house at 250 Lefferts Avenue changed hands 18 months ago for just $495,000 and is now asking $879,000. We’re not sure how much (if any) work was done in the interim, but if it involved those kitchens, they should have saved their money; the house would show better with old run-down appliances than with these Home Depot specials. When you compare it to last Thursday’s HOTD, 181 Midwood Street, this place looks a bit overpriced, in our opinion, despite being a bit larger. While the Lefferts Avenue house was probably at one point on a par with the Midwood house, it appears to have had a tougher life. Luckily, some redeeming original elements survived and with some renovation CPR this could still be a very nice place. But it deserves a discount to the Midwood house of more than $46,000, we suspect. Agree? It would be helpful to know what the contract price was for 242 Lefferts Avenue just down the block.
