Have you ever seen a fireplace that awesome? Or a curtain that awesome? Just think of all the amazing TVLand re-enactments you can do here.

Sweet!

$1 million – the average price of a Santa Clara House – WOOT!

The Silicon Valley Real Estate Report

This is the kind of stuff that I know people love to write to their friends and families in other states about.

Dear Mom and Dad – I live in a place where the average house sold for a million dollars last month. What about you? Take that, suckas!

It brings a tear to my eye. It really does.

Great work everyone. Let’s keep this up and try to break $2 million next year!

$700k house comes with red car blocking driveway

So do I get the car with purchase of the house? Or is this supposed to tell me that there’s a parking shortage problem in the neighborhood.

And what’s the deal with the front of the house. Is it just me or is the garage door really strange. Is there even a garage door? I can’t quite tell.

 DESCRIPTION –
1522 Florida Ave, San Jose
**HELP**Client needs to sell it is a lender approval*but property has new stucco*new landscape front and back of the house*clean property garage converted to studio permits unknown

That’s right! This house needs your help – but it has new stucco. Man, I hate it when new stucco gets in the way. Personally I would’ve thought it’d be the hanging lights that would get in the way of getting help – go figure.
So won’t you please help the owner? After all, it is a “lender approval”.

You’re getting quite a deal btw — according to Zillow:  Sold 08/29/2006: $650,000

Buy it today, and it’ll jump back to $650k. You heard it here first!

$420,001 price cut on this Sunny Ct house??

Originally I was going to comment on the number of cars in this picture – and how this house will help your family own 1.1 cars per person (as per Californian law.)

But then I noticed this on Zillow:  Sale History 7/28/2005:     $960,000

Youch! Is this for real? What’s the scoop here?

This San Jose house needs more windows

This Single Family Residence has the following features:
MLS#: 736053 Approx Age: Unavailable Approx Sq Ft: 1120
Detached Single Family 2 Stories Colonial
3 Bedrooms 1 Bathroom 1 Stall Shower

I’m pretty sure I can envision the dialog for when this house was built: “Yes. I want windows. Lots of windows. Lots and lots of them. I don’t really care where. Just lots of ‘em.”

And lots of windows there were.

Which is a good thing since this house is practically next to Highway 87 – you could double as a traffic reporter to supplement your income! Sweet!

Foreclosures skyrocket in the other Bay Area

Burbed Reader Brendan submitted this – sadly he was confused:

Bay Area foreclosure activity skyrockets
In the Bay Area, the number of houses scheduled to be sold on the courthouse steps quadrupled compared with a year ago, according to RealtyTrac, an Irvine company that sells foreclosure listings. In the nine-county region, 1,280 households were notified they were going on the block compared with 301 last August. By far the highest incidence of auction notices was in Contra Costa County, with 699 notices.

The number of homeowners behind on their payments hit 5,705 in the Bay Area, almost triple the 2,104 from last August.

The number of properties in the Bay Area that had reverted to the lender after foreclosure skyrocketed to 1,190 in August from 26 last year. Again, Contra Costa was most affected, with 574 bank-owned properties.

You see, that’s the other Bay Area. The Bay Area 2.0 is defined as Cupertino, Palo Alto, Los Altos and Mountain View. Places where they’re not making any more land, and where people become millionaires from stock options on a daily basis.

Nice try with your FUD tactics! Better luck next time!

New California affordable housing – easy access to freeway

Drivers Zoom by Roadside Debris – a Home

They say it was an accident – but really it was an accidental discovery for a great new way to build affordable housing in California, with easy access to freeways.

You just know that if this was on 280 or 85, it would be at least $450,000. (A little less if it were on 380.)

Tornado proof and Hurricane proof house in San Jose

MLSlistings Property Detail for MLS number 723608
1385 PEACH CT
San Jose, CA 95116
$460,000

1385peach.png

This Single Family Residence has the following features:
MLS#: 723608 Approx Age: 74 Years Approx Sq Ft: 900
Detached Single Family 1 Story Spanish
2 Bedrooms 1 Bathroom 1 Shower over Tub
1 Tub Eat in Kitchen Living Rm/Dining Rm Combo

They say that with global warming, weather patterns will be more extreme. That’s why this house is set for the future – by boarding up the windows ahead of time, that’s one less thing you’ll need to take care of when the next tornado or hurricane strikes San Jose.

Peace of mind isn’t something that you can always buy – but you can certainly try at $511 per square foot at this house!
