Thanks to Burbed reader Herve for this find.
Now, to be fair, the entry has since been updated to correct for this, but still its ok to have fun with this listing!
Just think, you can buy a house where all the neighbors were friends, so they’ll hate you when you move in. Because, you know, you’re not the guy.
But, you do have this dashing realtor to help you and build credibility, so I guess that’s a plus. So… just buy this house, tear it down, spend another $375k and boom you’ve got a great house in Mountain View. I wonder if you can do some sort of scheme where you leave one wall standing to preserve your purchase tax rate.
Anyone familiar with Prop 13 avoidance scams… er… techniques like that?
