This 3 bdrm 1 ba is a must see! Remod kit w/ custom cabinets, tile counter tops, ceramic floors w/ new lighting fixtures. Remodeled bathroom. Wood floors refurnished. Fireplace in living room. Buyers are responsible for $75 doc fee due @ close of escrow. Any offers or counter offers by Indymac bank are not binding unless entire aggrmnt is ratified by partners. Offers to be submitted by 5pm on 6/12.

All the time you hear people demand greater transparency. Well this house offers it. Now, you as the buyer won’t be left wondering “Gosh, who will be paying the $75 doc fee.”

Yes, I know. This could be a potential deal breaker. Sure it is 1.82e-4 of the purchase price, but still – money is money!

So cheers to the listing agent for making this clear. Cheers to the fact that the bank it mentions doesn’t really exist. Cheers to this gerat opportunity to live in a house in Daly City that looks a lot like a shipping container.

Cheers all around!

    Take your time – offers aren’t due until June 12. Must be 2010, right?

    Just to make his case, Burbed should have shown satellite images. This is Port of Oakland. And This is Port of Daly City.

  3. Pralay Says:

    Cut-and-paste problem in #2.

    This is Port of Daly City.

  4. BobbyS Says:

    The song, “Little Boxes”, written by Malvina Reynolds and made famous by Pete Singer, was a reference to the homes “made of ticky tacky” in Daly City.

  5. BobbyS Says:

    Pralay, that’s hilarious. I guess one draw of those shipping container homes is its kitsch appeal.

    BobbyS – what is your avatar??

    pralay, the sat photos are genius.

    bobbys, great factoid.

    That steal of a deal is pending! We all missed our chance to get on the property ladder! NOOOOOOOO!

    Let there be no doubt that I am the worst admin ever. Thanks to nomadic for pointing out the server was hosed.

    I spent all weekend securing the site (or so I thought) but I think something bad happened.

  10. DreamT Says:

    didn’t you set up paging if the server goes down?… 🙂

  11. nomadic Says:

    Sheesh – all the regulars are a bunch of apathetic losers (myself included). LOL. The site was down for at least six hours… an NO ONE let the emperor know??

  12. DreamT Says:

    I figured he was letting his site take some time off… to avoid comment burnout…

  13. Pralay Says:

    You guys are delusional. Can there be real server down in RBA? Impossible! It was just inaccessible to certain visitors for certain duration….intentionally. Burbed.com server is like RBA property – always up and never down.

  14. DreamT Says:

    BTW nomadic, nowhere does it say we don’t have an empress. That could explain the fixation on pink houses wouldn’t it?

  15. nomadic Says:

    Are you calling John Mellencamp a sissy, DreamT?

  16. R Says:

    Slightly off topic, but probably no one symbolizes the hysteria of the bubble years, in which truly anybody could “make” money and pretend to be rich, better than Lenny Dykstra, who Jim Kramer now (in)famously touted as “one of the great ones” during the height of the insanity. Check out this clip from the Daily Show from a few ago. Illustrates the insanity pretty well.

    I have a friend who lives on Skyline. that area is ALWAYS foggy. it is really, really depressing. and I *like* fog. the last time I was up there – about a year ago – there were loads of houses with for-sale signs on Skyline. they’ve probably all gone into foreclosure, now.

    5% is “huge?”
    Now $389,000 – the bank has taken possession.
