MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (KRON) — A single-family home in the Silicon Valley swiftly sold for nearly $1 million over the asking price in just under a week.
The home at 593 Sleeper Ave in Mountain View was listed at $4,498,000 on April 22, according to Compass.
It sold for $5,477,000.
Zillow reports that home values in the same 94040 zip code have increased by 2.8% just in the last year.
The pandemic turned into a hot seller’s market as people rushed to buy their dream homes and more space.
The two-story Sleeper Ave house has a total of seven bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms – two of those bedrooms and one bath inside a new accessory dwelling unit on the property.
It was built in 1964 and renovated in 2018 – adding oak floors, crown moldings, wainscot, ship-lap paneled ceilings, and a new kitchen. There is also a well-lit dedicated office space for those work-from-home days.
Take a look inside and out:
The last time it sold was in 2003, for just above one million dollars.
The huge sale isn’t unheard of in the Bay Area. In March, a house in Berkeley also sold for $1 million over the asking price with 29 total offers.
Not too far north, a home in Citrus Heights received 122 offers in one weekend on the market.
