Lovely ranch style home with CUPERTINO SCHOOLS! Garage converted to one-bedroom, full bath, kitchen apartment, currently tenant-occupied. Private yet convenient location to ever popular Stevens Creek shopping. Fruit trees galore–White & Yellow Peach, Avocado, Asian Prunes, Apricot, Nectarine, and many more! New roof & hardwood floors. Sunroom & apartment non-conforming and not included in sq ft.

Hey it’s a lovely ranch style home with Cupertino Schools and a lucky price.

Did I mention CUPERTINO SCHOOLS? What about CUPERTINO SCHOOLS?

Even better, it comes with an apartment… can you say cashflow? You could easily rent it out to someone who is looking to spend big for CUPERTINO SCHOOLS.

But what really caught my attention was the idea of a tree growing Asian Prunes. Um… Just how do you grow prunes? Any agricultural experts here who can help resolve this mystery?

    Oh, my, an error in an MLS listing; I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a mistake in a realtor-written entry before! I wonder if the realtor will lose their license?

    There’s no such thing as an asian prune. It’s either an asian pear tree (apple-like), or it’s a prune tree. Prune/french prunes are a variety of plum that have a high sugar content. The 1930’s Santa Clara Valley tradition is you wait for the plums to fall from the tree, then force the kids out into the orchards with buckets to pick them all up off the ground. You dip them in lye to soften the skin and kill bugs, put them out in the sun to dry, then profit!

    My money’s on asian pear, though. Much less trouble, and easier to get at Orchard Supply.

    CUPERTINO SCHOOLS! YAAAAY! Send your children to robot factories where they’re taught that if they disagree with authority swift and severe consequences await. You children will grow up to be loyal, unquestioning cubicle dwelling mortgagors.

    Change the price to $869,888 and Alex may go to the open house.

    If you like that MLS-error, how about this lovely (ahem) home in Los Altos with a “Marble Fourier?” I actually had to pause after that one to translate into what the realtard meant.

    Do you suppose whoever wrote that was a math major, or left engineering for a lucrative career pushing houses?

    http://www.redfin.com/CA/Los-Altos/1320-Carvo-Ct-94024/home/1355017

    I momentarily forgot that not everyone here is a geek. To know what I mean about the transformation of this foyer, reference here.

  6. Harvay Estater Says:

    I like this reference better.

    LOL – nice!

    That’s a perfect property for Faux Estater. It’s in the price range. And he does not need to report rent checks from the “apartment” for tax purposes.

    The price may be a lucky number, but the street number starts with “4”, a big no-no in Chinese Numerology.

  10. mrbogue Says:

    Why not just price it at $888,888. It’ll be even +LUCKIER!+

    Yahoo takes down signs on 101
    By Mike Swift
    Posted: 03/22/2010 01:51:42 PM PDT

    Yahoo’s prominent signs may have disappeared from Highway 101 in Santa Clara, but the company says the change does not reflect anything different about Yahoo’s workforce or operations.

    The huge signs disappeared after the company relocated workers to other sites in Sunnyvale and Santa Clara, said Dana Lengkeek, a Yahoo spokeswoman.

    The signs along 101 near Mission College were taken down in December, as Yahoo vacated 385,000 square feet of space in buildings where the company’s lease was expiring, Lengkeek said. Yahoo workers were reassigned to buildings Yahoo owns in Sunnyvale, or leases along Great America Parkway in Santa Clara.

    I don’t understand why everyone is dissing this house. It’s got CUPERTINO SCHOOLS (which are even better than Cupertino Schools) AND an Asian Prune tree! All they need is to change the house number to 8881 Mirimar, or even better yet, 8888 Prosperity, and stock the non-conforming sunroom with the 10,000 kilos of white rice. And the Asian prunes, which I guess are dried plums wrapped in rice. What, you didn’t know rice was a dessicant?

    Okay, in all seriousness, I thought this was a good article about CUPERTINO SCHOOLS.

    Change the price to $869,888 and Alex may go to the open house.

    Harvay, are you hanging out with my kids or something? Get your mind out of the gutter. And thanks for that link. I cannot tell you how relieved I am to know who is and who is not into redheads.

    nomadic, I like the marble Fourier. I am wondering where to get a granite oscilloscope to go with.

    Big deal! I don’t understand what is that anxiety all about. The hint (and hope) is spelled out right in the article: “this K-8 Silicon Valley district, home of Apple Computer“.

    I am pretty sure CEO/CFO/CTO parents are already lined up for giving donations. Does Cupertino schools have drive-thru donation box? If so, that might speed up the donation process.

    Will the cute redhead and Asian chicks be there? I certainly hope they’re not prunes.

    Marble Fourier.

    The realtard was trying to impress geeks like me with Fourier transforms and K-space. But alas, it’s way over my head. I only speak in terms of blondes, brunettes, redheads and Asians. LOL

  15. Harvey Estayter Says:

    Not only the price was reduced to $799,999 but Asian prunes, apricots and nectarines are gone.

  16. Pralay Says:

    but Asian prunes, apricots and nectarines are gone.
    —-

    Well, the agent is not stupid. He/she knows that this is still winter. You have to wait till summer when prunes, apricots and nectarines come back.

  17. Real Estater Says:

    If you live in Santa Clara, your house probably looks something like this.

  18. nomadic Says:

    Shucks – the price isn’t lucky anymore!

  19. Tuno Says:

    Eat enough asian prunes and you will end up with the Sewage House.

    look again at the garage door – is this in fact a house of cards?

    Shout out to Cupertino Schools (Lynbrook High) from Thomas Friedman in the NY Times!

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/21/opinion/21friedman.html

    The column is about the Intel science competition. And included this nugget:

    “Local San Jose realtors are running ads in newspapers in China and India telling potential immigrants to “buy a home” in her Lynbrook school district because it produced “two Intel science winners.””

    4881 Miramar is in Lynbrook High attendance area.

  21. Alex Says:

    I just took a dump and unloaded “two Intel Science winners.”

    Dow Jones closing at 10,888. Now that’s a lucky number!

  23. anon Says:

    Hey – nice work Alex. Way to do your part to make sure the “best and brightest” stay around here.

    That sure is a lucky number, petsmart groomer harvey dent. It’s almost as if it was chosen before the day even began!

  24. Alex Says:

    Glad to see my 2 floaters maintain the intelligence pool of Silicon Valley.
