THIS HOME HAS IT ALL…Only 6 years old, it is loaded with two balconies, one that looks over a Pond on the 5th. tee.

Professional Kitchen with cherry wood cabinets throughout, Viking 6 burner stove, Sub-Zero refridgerator, with no home on the back or side yard.

Brand new swimming pool, tennis courts, elementry school, 8 1/2″ crown moulding and wainscoteing everyware.

Hardwood floors granite kitchen and each bedroom has its own private bathroom.

Beautiful views of every room in the home.

This home would sell for $1,500,000 but we have decided to keep it for the young children when they become adults. AVAILABLE AUGUST 1st.

Call for a private showing at 408/210-7740 and ask for Pierce.

Like E.V. I thought the comment about keeping the house for the young children around kind of amusing. This is one heck of a generous gift!

Assuming you put 20% down, an Interest Only ARM would still be $5,000 a month. A 30 year fixed? $7,388 a month.

It seems to me that there are other investments that may have better returns, but that’s just me.

Oh, BTW, E.V. also found that a business seems to be based out of this house:

Business Name: First Choice Funding Mortgage
Company Type: Mortgage Brokers
Street Address: 2420 Muirfield Way
City: Gilroy
State: California
Zip: 95020
Contact Email:
Phone: (408) 987-2286

What does this all mean? I don’t know.

    It means you’re screwed if you rent it because you’ll lose your deposit when it’s foreclosed.

    Pierce,
    sell the home and hire a spelling and language tutor for you and the kids!! Is “everyware” a new type of kitchen appliance/utensil or did you mean ” everywhere”? What elementary school does this area feed into, and do the teachers know how to spell ” elementry”? I know this is a bit picky and my language and spelling skills are not perfect but come on guys, most people that can afford this kind of rent can usually spell basic English words. At least have someone proofread your ad on Craiglist.

    The rent/purchase ratio is way out of wack. But the funny thing is 4k/mo is a lot of money, I don’t even think most “average” people can afford the “below cost” rents that these homeowners are asking.
