The original listing can be seen here: here.
Although only on the market for eleven days, the listing underwent a price reduction from the original $549,000. to $535,000. This quick improvement had its desired effect of catching the attention of presumably more than one interested buyer, sending the settled price relatively close to the original ask (at net $542,000.)
