I chose the lopsided photo of 2718 Harris Street for a reason: the property is Bank Owned and the price on this property is askew. Let me explain further.
2718 Harris Street is located just at the beginning of New Town. It is a couple of blocks directly north of Grace Lutheran Church on Flagler Boulevard I toured this house over a year ago on Realtor caravan with about 40 other Realtors. What first struck me about this house was the asking price at that time $1,899,000. That was an awful lot of money for that block and that house at that time! Once I got inside I could see all of the love and creativity that went into the remodel that the owner was just completing. I think most of us thought the house was over-built for the area and way over-priced PERIOD! As the months passed the owner progressively dropped the asking price down to $1.1 million. Then the bank foreclosed.

There are some other larger homes in the immediate area, but most of the houses are 1960's and 1970's vintage ranches. I'm not telling you anything you can't see for yourself about this house being over built for the area. Here are some other photos I took of 2718 Harris Street this morning:
