Sometimes a home comes to market that offers so much, you really wonder if it might not be a fun gig to take bets on how long it will last on the market. Can we do that here, or is it illegal?

Because I want to place a bet on 7339 La Vista in Lakewood Hills, one of the most sought-after neighborhoods east of Central. The home is a fairly new Tudor, looks like it’s never been lived in, and boasts almost 3,000 square feet on pier and beam (2737) on 0.17 of an acre.

Why am I in such a betting mood?

Because this one won’t last. In fact, it’s open Sunday from two to four p.m.,  says the agent, Allie Beth Allman’s Maribeth Peters. And it’s the best price per square foot in town for an updated four bedroom in Lakewood Elementary!

Why is Lakewood Hills so darn hot?
