What are you doing this weekend? Oh, right! Buying a Gables End house!

This weekend only folks! THIS WEEKEND ONLY!

No mortgage payments for 6 months. $50k off.

What else could you possibly ask for?

Just like how people go to Costco to buy a 2000 pack of toilet paper and and cans of spam, you should be out scooping up an armload of these townhouses!

You’re going to slacking off this weekend once the economy recovers. And, when it does, traffic on 101 will come roaring back, giving your house an even more dynamic view.

Plan ahead… act now!

    Burbed out to feature more mundane examples of over-pricing. Take this property in Santa Clara for example — What are they thinking? $870K for under 6000 sq. ft. lot next to Lawrence Expressway. If you put 20% down, you still need to borrow approximately $700K. How much does this guy think the typical SC buyer is making?

    Out, damn’d spot! out, I say!

    LOL

    Oh, come on now. Be fair. 1600 sqft townhomes sell for 630k. 240k more for 150 sqft and no homeowner fees? That’s a fantastic deal.

    Looks like somebody has forgotten how special it is here.

    This is a common trait. Someone who does not have money thinks nobody else has any money. As a reminder, not everyone squandered their down payment on a Cayenne Turbo!

    It may be hard for you to imagine, but there’s tons of money in the system due to the opportunities over the past 10 years. Some made money in stocks, some in real estate, some in the mortgage lending business, some in tech, biotech, healthcare, VC, mergers and acquisitions, IPOS, etc. .

    Post #9, moron.

    Ah hahaha – here’s another gem fact from RE:

    Guys,

    They are down to the last 4 homes. The market doesn’t agree with you.”

    RE regarding gables end on October 3, 2008.

    The market certainly doesn’t agree. Whereas they were ‘low 600s’ in October, now they’re low 700s. Market took of right under your nose. Stupid you for not paying attention.

    Obviously you don’t understand qualifiers. Let me highlight it for you:

    I know I should not tell you my plans, but starting tomorrow I will be camping at Gables End to be the first in line on Black Friday. I hear they will be giving away one free Blu-Ray player with each townhouse.

    Congratulations Burbed, you are now #3 after http://www.gablesend.com and http://www.trulia.com on a Google search for Gables End!

    Clearly.

    Obviously you don’t understand that money is not confined to a specific city and that people in the Bay Area have unlimited resources. They are also so intelligent they will find a way to pay for homes – no matter what the price – so long as they can enable a doubling every 10 years.

    Stop complaining because your broke ass is priced out forever. Take your seat with the other priced out fools and shut up.

    Price out fools? I am priced out forever on Gable’s End? I hang my head in shame, as I was so hoping to watch small yappy dogs die from the in-ground contaminants and small yappy children show healthy glow from playing on the fertile grounds.

  10. Herve Says:

    I like the fact that they still advertise Gables End as the “Best-Selling Homes in Mountain View“. That says a lot about the real estate situation in Googleville.

    Guys,

    What’re you doing here? Go out and enjoy your Sunday!
