Great Belmont Hills Neighborhood * Bargain Priced $230,000 Below Last Sale of Same Model Type on Same Bay and City Lights View Side of Street
This is a beautiful view home with bay, city lights, canyon and mountain views. Lovers of nature will enjoy the daily deer sightings just off the spacious back deck or from the private balcony of the huge master suite. This is a fantastic neighborhood with a little tike park located just up the street from the home. The current schools are the finest in Belmont with 2006 API Test Scores of 915 for Fox Elementary, 858 for Ralston Intermediate and 791 for Carlmont High School. This compares favorably with the statewide average of 721 and the San Carlos Elementary School District’s 873 average. This luxurious home has just been painted and also has new carpet to go along with the hardwood floors. Customize the home by changing out the original appliances in the kitchen. The yardwork is minimal aside from mowing the front lawn. A private enclosed courtyard is ideal for a fountain, garden, child’s play or pets and the backyard is nearly maintenance-free. This home is priced $230,000 less than the last sale price (September, 2007) of $1,260,000 for the same model home type on the same side of the street in pristine shape. This is an opportunity to create well over $100,000 of instant equity in your new home. Call Robert today to take advantage of this special opportunity.

Burbed reader Edward sent this in… apparently he feels that I give too much love to Redwood City and San Jose. I suppose so.

In particular, Edward was amazed that you could buy 3 deer for $1 million – he forgets that they’re very special deer. Probably the most open minded, Web 2.0 savvy deer there is.

Personally, I’m a bit surprised at the ad: look at that instant equity! How can any one resist. Buy it, refi it, and boom – suddenly you’ve got enough money to invest in assets like a nice car to go with your new millionaire status!

How can any one resist!

Thanks Edward!

    I lived in a very similar area for many years. There’s nothing quite like never knowing if a deer is going to dash out in front of you and destroy your car, or finding a fresh roadkill someone left on your lawn, or eating dinner while they mosey around and pee on your lawn outside.

    minimal landscaping… because the deer eat everything you plant!

    Built-in equity – free meat!

    How is deer going to live on a 3000 sq. ft. lot?

  5. Renter Says:

    The 3 deers will mate and double its population every year. Within 10 years, you will have 3000 deers. And commodity (beef, pork, deer meat) price will skyrocket in 10 years. Those 3000 deers will be worth more than $1M.
