This is one of those properties that makes me proud to be in the Bay Area. $800k…. $715 per square foot.

No interior pictures.

It’s the kind of property that knows who is the boss… who is in control. It’s the seller. And the seller saying to you, the buyer, “You’re my bitch.”

Nice. I love it.

I also love the look of this semi-attached house. I like the bold clean lines that says “I’m a Costco – but with windows.” I like the plethora of cables that allow you to tie your tennis shoes together, and throw them onto the wires.

But most importantly, I love the art deco trim of this house.

Now, I know that a lot of snobby east coast know nothings would probably say that this is art deco:

But hey… this is New Art Deco, if you know what I mean. And, isn’t that trim between the first and second floors kind of like the trim above?

Like or leave it. Welcome to the Bay Area.

    Nice how many of the other homes around it for sale ( looks like half the damned neighborhood is for sale) are a lot cheaper than this thing.

  3. nomadic Says:

    But bob, the seller “needs” to price at $799k to have room to bargain down a bit and still cover the 6% commission.

    It’s better every year!

    Hey look! More trash.

    Anyone wanna buy and old snicker’s candybar wrapper for $200,000? I’m taking bids.

    Somebody needs to show this crap shack to folks that live in the art deco district of South Beach. They would probably get a hell of a laugh. 🙂

  8. nomadic Says:

    They could have been more accurate calling this style “cubist” but it would be insulting to another group.

    This house is a real challenging for my math skills. I still can’t figure this part out:

    # of Baths: 1

    1 Bath on Main Level
    1 Bath on Lower Level

    How is 1 + 1 = 1

    I guess this house really makes you think outside the box and let’s you live in one 🙂

  10. nomadic Says:

    It’s easy of the lower level IS the main level! A new realtard trick, I guess.

  11. A. Lewis Says:

    The upper level toilet just drops through a hole in the ceiling to the lower level one. You can only flush downstairs. It conserves water!

  12. Joe Says:

    Thanks for the visual #11 🙂

  13. Bob The Realtor Says:

    It’s got a new kitchen. I bet it has granite. If it has granite it is way underpriced. Gleaming hardwoods as well, tack on another 100k.

    Better get in now, and get out quickly before the next wave of equity locusts come.

    They should change the label from “art deco” to “rustic”. That is more conducive to an internal outhouse. 🙂

  15. bob Says:

    Hey- you know what? People used to be able to sell their crap to “Soil men” who came and cleaned out the outhouse. They use it to manufacture gunpowder. So if this house has such a feature, it would be an instant moneymaker for the new , proud owners! The RE agent should mention this.

  16. anon Says:

    Fascinating story, bob. I suppose this generation of bagholders is the modern day equivalant of “soil men” – they buy people’s shit (homes) and try to clean em up.
