Any real estate site, including this one, can profile high-end properties. They’re nice to look at, have plenty of goodies to ogle, and there’s so much to say about them. But what makes burbed stand apart from other sites is that we’re not afraid to feature houses that could fall over if someone knocked on the front door. Silicon Valley is amazing. They may not be making any more land, but there will always be more crapboxes that will run you over half a million dollars.

Contractor special! Great location by La Rinconada Golf Course. List price reflects condition of home. Home is in poor condition – sold "as is" only. Property has good potential – visionary Buyer can see a diamond in the rough.
Let’s have a good look at this diamond again. Don’t be fooled by the high-priced Los Gatos address; this gem has Campbell schools. Guess that’s part of the “rough” the diamond is in. Too bad the listing agent only provided one photo, so here’s what the Googlecam found on a very sunny day shooting for shady conditions.
The agent told the truth about one thing: the landscaping is also “in the rough.” But take a closer look! You get extra firewood all around the property line, and maybe if you ask really nicely you can buy the watercraft at in insider’s price. I hope this isn’t what the listing meant by “RV/Boat parking.”
And you know if you ask a real estate professional what makes a house Special, they always answer “Location, Location, Location?” Check it out!
Sure, it’s close to the golf course, but they left out the part about the condos next door. And the apartment complex next to the condos. And why would they omit the ever-popular “convenient to freeway”? As a visionary Buyer, you’re expected to do all the seeing.
This must be a very patriotic neighborhood, because of the flag lots. Make your offer before the Fourth of July!
