Four years ago in June the asking price on 3214 S Canal St was $2.8 million. The home has been on and off the market since that time and the list price has slowly edged down to $2,287,000. At that price it’s still by far the most expensive home on the market in Bridgeport.
The 5-year old 4-level home boasts 5 bedrooms, 5 full and 2 half baths, 5 fireplaces, an elevator and a 3-car garage. It spans a reported 9,000 square feet of living area on a 50 x 125 lot within shouting distance of US Cellular Field.
According to Redfin, only one Bridgeport home, 3433 S Parnell, has sold for more than $1 million in the last 3 years.
Bridgeport is one of those communities with a surprising amount of quiet wealth where homes often trade outside the Multiple Listing Service, making it extremely important to work with a broker who’s knowledgeable about the market there, lives in the community and is wired into its distinctive culture. And no, I’m not going to name any of those people.
