Alright… what’s going on in that second floor? This is not marked as a multi -unit, yet it really looks like a motel. A pink Motel 6 anyone?

Maybe that’s part of the cash flow strategy for this house – buy it and rent out rooms by the night. Hmmmmmm

    I like the pink yard to match the pink house. Pink? why do people have day glo colored houses in certain parts of the country? It is horrible – like driving a banana yellow car… MY OPINION – you do not need to agree!

    That’s the “special.” Drive up 280 north of 92 sometime and check out the giant orange mansion that looks like it was made out of Play-Doh, right at the Hillsborough border.

    Price drop to $699,950.

    Speaking of odd paint jobs, The Wall Street Journal had a story today about some shady campaign funding originating from a lime green house in Daly City.

    Much ado about nothing. Forty-five grand is pocket change when houses in your neighborhood are going for $650k to $800k.

    Why all the trouble to make it pink? Save the money and do a proper demolition.

  6. Gene Says:

    Great architecture — that second floor will be located on the first floor when the earthquake comes and the “soft story” garage collapses.

    When I saw this place the theme song for the Pink Panther just shot in my head.

    What’s up with the 777 ending price? Does that mean: it’s your lucky day? Damn, I better buy this house and head to Vegas !!!

  9. jo jo Says:

    hey price drop alert 85k buy it now its a steal. Now only 699k another 150k drop its a buy

  10. Area 51 Says:

    Burbed, you did it again. Forced a price drop of $85k!
    Hey, an idea, start profiling nice places, maybe they’ll plummet in price too!
