Thanks to Burbed reader LG for this find.

LG thought the phrase “pristine Belmont loc” to be very poignant.

Let’s take a look shall we:


Sure, that’ll be pristine… for about a day or two. But don’t worry, there’s a large backyard for you to set up that traffic monitoring system that you’ve always wanted. What? Didn’t you always want to be a reporter when you grew up?

Thanks LG!

What does the #1 in the Top 25 Towns To Live Well look like

Last Sunday this site feature Forbes’ list of America’s Top 25 Towns To Live Well (and have easy access to VC’s).

Of course the Bay Area took 5 spots on that list. Is it any surprise? It’s the Top 25 Towns To Live Well (and have easy access to VCs). The Bay Area is so special that it deserves to be in the list.

But sadly, #1 was taken by a non-Bay Area city. Let’s take a look at what a typical Bay Area house buys you in that #1 city…

352 Balsam Ln, Boulder, CO, 80304 – MLS ID#592543 – Single Family Home real estate – REALTOR.com®


Yeesh. I certainly wouldn’t want to live there. Would you?

(Any Boulder experts want to confirm whether this is in a top Boulder neighborhood?)
