Bank owned, priced right, contractors special! Fixer-upper. Needs work, but great price. Buyer to verify square footage and lot size. NO FINANCING – CASH OFFERS ONLY.

Thanks to Burbed reader Michelle for this find!

You could make fun of this, or you could notice that it is already Pending Without Release. Seriously… $239,900? Some people can just charge that to their credit card!

So… guess what. It’s too late for you to buy this for your son/daughter. Boy is he/she going to be upset tomorrow when he/she finds out that Santa couldn’t deliver his/her dream play house.

You just failed as a parent.

    Unbelieveable this POS sold for $650k in 2006.

    I really love the photos on this one. #2 looks like a nook for a refrigerator, so they’re admitting the last FB took it when he left the keys. #3 and #6 show there’s some copper you could harvest. And what’s with #7, looks like the fireplace was condemned.

    Thing is, this is on a decent sized lot (7000 sf) but the cul de sac it’s on is right off Santa Teresa del Fuego, a six-lane thoroughfare. From the aerial view, it looks like the other houses are in acceptable shape while this one is not. I’d think about buying it for $200K, burning it down and starting over.

    For some reason, looking at the photos of this half-completed (?) reno reminds me of one of my favorite shows of the recent past – TLC’s “Property Ladder”. More succinctly, the third (last?) season of PL where the flippers had the collective brains of a single frozen green pea, and would go way over their non-budget and STILL end up with a half-finished POS. With the current market, I doubt that we will be seeing a 4th season of Property Ladder anytime soon, but at least I have my memories…
