    Okay in most parts of the country that would be called a SHACK, no? For $440k! EEEEE… that is pure insanity!! The Realtor has the balls to call it a low priced HOUSE!!! My goodness ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Burbed, why speechless?

    You’ve never seen people raising horses in Redwood city? That’s close to the horse race track, they sure need a barn.

    Looks like a barn.

    Up the road from here a couple of miles I can show you some people living in a railroad caboose.


    Actually it’s kind of cool. Small, but hey, it’s a piece of RR history. They have looks like at least an acre of land, animals, etc. They probably bought the land, caboose etc for $10k tops. Maybe less than that, if they bought 10+ years ago.

    Haha out in Chino Valley AZ we’re still too close to CA, the RE bubble has been in full swing here too. The place I’m in was bought for $80k, went up to about $300k, now it’s back down around $160k. It will be back to $80k soon, as if we care, it’s paid for.

    This crap is bought for $540K with 100% financing from Long Beach Mortgage in 11/2005. Another short sell. Deutsche Bank estimated that lenders would eventually lose $400B from mortgage crisis, now they loss only a bit more than $100B, still long way to go.

    How do you know it was Long Beach Mortgage?

    And about the railroad caboose, didn’t you see Harrold and Maude?
