Thanks to Burbed reader Herve for this find. It’s Herve week!

Let’s face it… all around the world, it is a well known fact that Woodside is unique in so many ways. The (future) home of Steve Jobs, many other CEOs and rich people – it’s proof that the Real Bay Area is truly magical.

Just look at the sky in this photo. It’s a combination of two things:

1. That the amazing aura of so many wealthy people can clear up clouds, and produce a perfectly blue sky. If you had just ordinary people, it wouldn’t look like that.

2. Amazing photography skills by Realtors. Only a licensed, 3-6% earning Realtor can capture a moment like this.

Looking at this photo simply brings tears to my eyes. My god is the Real Bay Area beautiful. So beautiful. Thank you Realtor for helping the world see it!

    The sky is very creepy, but it was still scarier to go to the second pic on Redfin.

    This house is in the land that time forgot (but apparently an exception was made for price increases).

  2. sfbubblebuyer Says:

    I know of a couple who are renting out their million dollar woodside shack at a loss so they can buy an even more expensive shack zoned for horses. They plan to sell when “the market comes back”.

  3. nomadic Says:

    I hope they’re young, sfbb. Gonna take awhile.

  4. anon Says:

    I can’t tell if that’s the sky or if its a lake. Either way, I want to swim in it!



  5. BuyersAreIdiots Says:

    $1200 a square foot?! Bwaaa ha ha ha!!!!

  6. anon Says:

    Oh, hush – “the value’s in the land.”


  7. sonarrat Says:

    Anyone with a “value in the land” property is going to be waiting a while to see the value return to that land. I’m renting one of them. That half-acre close to the library and schools doesn’t feel so valuable when you can’t get financing to build on it.

  8. nomadic Says:

    Who knows, on those home buying shows there are always crazy people who pick a house based on the yard for their dog and whether it’s fenced. Maybe a “horse person” will decide they have to have it!

    Yes, Realtards are jack of all trades. First of all they are financial advisers (they will tell you how much you should spend for buying home or whether some property is affordable for you). They knows CPR, as you have read in yesterday’s topic. They are good photographers too. Then they are Photoshop experts. And I heard some of the Realtards are average tech guys too, managing mega-projects.

    Well, unless they struck oil or the neighbors are the Swedish Bikini Team, then me thinks the land value may be a tad inflated. 😉

  11. nomadic Says:

    Does anyone know what happened to the site “viewfromsiliconvalley.com?” He used to post here on occasion (like here: http://tinyurl.com/kpsstn). The site appears to have died.

  12. SanMatean Says:

    nomadic- it looks like the VFSV author finally bailed on the Bay Area. VFSV is now View From Florida, according to an email sent out to VFSV newsletter subscribers.

    Hey, check it out:


    “Actor Stephen Baldwin files for bankruptcy in NY”

    Baldwin, who has appeared in films including “The Usual Suspects” in 1995 as well as more recently in U.S. celebrity and reality television shows, owes about $1.2 million on two mortgages on the New York

    If only he had bought in the Real Bay Area instead of New York. A couple of million worth of property in Palo Alto must SURELY be worth nearly five million by now! 😉

  14. sfbubblebuyer Says:

    He should have diversified and bought multiple houses in BOTH Manhattan AND the RBA. Then he could have jetted between them dumping blue ice on the flyover states!

  15. Alex Says:

    Damn. I am amazed at the blue sky!! I guess that’s a perk of living in the RBA.

    Over the weekend, I took some pictures and the sky looked washed-out. I was bitching and whining and then started shopping for some circular polarizing filters.

    Now I’ve learned the error of my way. I should just buy this property and take all my pictures under that deep blue sky!

  16. anon Says:

    I am becoming increasingly convinced that is a lake…

  17. nomadic Says:

    Thanks, SanMatean. I was wondering about the latest VC investment in the bay area and noticed vfsv was gone.

    anon, do you suppose it’s a lake hanging there, just waiting to put all of the mid-to-high-end owners underwater when the latest foreclosure moratoriums end? 😉

  18. anon Says:

    I don’t know if that lake is big enough to put ALL them underwater…

    Certainly its large enough to get anyone whose stupid enough to SIGN UP TO PAY 1.6 mil for this trash.

  19. anon Says:

    One more thing: I love the “solid older home”

    Older. Built in 1939. It’s 2009. Now, they didn’t teach me to subtract very well in community college, but 2009-1939=70. This home is 70 years old. That’s “older”? So many fools.

    Imagine the maintenance nightmare this POS brings…

  20. Woody Guthrie Says:

    What do you get when you mix Prop 13, restrictive zoning laws, and too many rich morons?

    Answer: Horse manure for sale at $1,222 per square foot.

    There is a great article on CA’s budget crisis in today’s NY Times. Apparently CA still ain’t got the do-re-mi.


  21. nomadic Says:

    This home is 70 years old. That’s “older”?

    Sure. Older than me. Older than my house. But not quite older than dirt. It’s all relative!

  22. nomadic Says:

    Woody – you might find this review interesting:

  23. Woody Guthrie Says:

    Yes, that book looks like good summer reading for me. My grandfather came to CA during WWII as a carpenter. He was able to buy house, car and send my mother to a state college on a carpenter’s salary.

    Of course today we have modern conveniences like the internet. Thanks to the internet, we can buy stuff and view pornography at lightning speed in the comfort of our homes. My grandfather only had Sears catalogs and magazine pinups – how quaint!

  24. bob Says:

    absolute crack-smoking price. Then again, you just know this thing is going to sell. The Bay Area needs a new designation: Bay full of idiots.

  25. anon Says:

    No, bob.

    The bay area is full of smart people.

    Smart people who know real estate always goes up here.

  26. no estater Says:

    damn straight, anon. falling home values are for the little people with their subprime loans and pickup trucks.

  27. cardinal2007 Says:

    This house is now featured on the San Francisco Chronicle, or at least the picture is:


  28. DreamT Says:

    and the article links to the burbed site. kuddos to Herve!

  29. Herve Estater Says:

    Patrick.net also links to the San Francisco Chronicle article.
