This link should take you to Marty's index of Van Bergen homes. Several reflect the Sears home.

This is what I don't understand. If you are a Wright fan, and willing to pay a premium for the house because it is a Wright, you most likely don't care that it has a historic designation - you appreciate that it is not altered. If you are merely looking for a lot or house onto which you can add, why...

If I recall correctly, he bought the house for around $175,000. I would think that he could find a buyer that would buy it at that price, if not more. The question is, how much more?

A few responses: * Zestimates maybe foolish, but they are about as best as any out-of-towner has to understand general market values. * Location does matter for real estate values, so I think zillow does get that correct. If this house was in L.A., I'm sure it would have sold for the asking price (o...

the article explains issues with why it hasn't sold. I think part of the issue might also be the disparity between the asking price and the "ordinary" market value. I have no idea if this is close to accurate, but zillow shows a value of $275,000 (obviously, zillow doesn't factor in the home's archi...
