Very nice and clean starter home. Remodeled kitchen w/ granite countertop. Living/Dining combination. Newer roof. Location, Location, Location. Not a short sale. Not an REO. Will close in time for someone looking for tax credit. In very good move-in condition.
Frankly, I’m a little perplexed as to what’s going on here. Now, sure… I’ll believe that this is remodeled and its in very good move-in condition… after all, the realtor said so, so it must be true. Unlike others, I don’t need to trust, but verify when it comes to dealing with a C.A.R.
But what’s going on with that fence. Is that little green plot of land yours? Is it the neighbor’s? Did they blitzkrieg the property to take over that portion? And why do the photos emphasize this mystery more than anything else?
Let’s face it… it’s a great deal. And just $532 per square foot to boot. But the fence thing is strange strange strange.
The mind boggles.

    The fence continues along the sidewalk to the side of the neighbor’s house. Hilarious, but with a 2,325 square foot lot, every inch counts!

    65 Randolph next door sold for $275,000 in December, and it’s bigger. I suppose the $8000 tax credit has a multiplier effect!

    It’s a beautifully landscaped yard and you want to keep the pit bulls from peeing on the expensive shrubbery.

    “Very nice and clean starter home. Remodeled kitchen w/ granite countertop.”

    Starter home with granite countertop? Granite countertop inside, but the laundry is in the garage.

    “Not a short sale. Not an REO.”

    How much extra is that worth? I’m not really sure, but is this a secret message that this place is supposedly located in the RBA?

    “Will close in time for someone looking for tax credit.”

    Backdate documents, maybe?

    Even more amazingly affordable now: $378K.

    I was thinking along the same lines as maryjane, except I figured the fence was to keep the pit bulls in the front yard where they can intimidate anyone thinking about ringing the doorbell. That might even explain why the realtard didn’t go inside to take any pictures.

  6. DreamT Says:

    so, the front year isn’t an outdoor day care after all?

  7. DreamT Says:

    lol – correction: the front yard.

    Daycare. With pit bulls. *Nobody* is kidnapping those kids.

    When was SSF “The Industrial City” ever in the RBA?

  9. SEA Says:

    madhaus- You buy SSF today hoping that it will be in the RBA when you sell. The worst-case is buying in the RBA and selling outside of the RBA.

    That’s assuming there’s any kid to nap after the pit bulls are done mauling them.

    I think a lot of cities are outlawing chain link fences in the zoning codes now.
