And what a find from nomadic, today’s Guest Blogger, has for us at over at San Jose del Norte del Muy Norte. No real estate orgy, but a very generous serving of suggestive numbers, both in the address and the price. That ought to be worth something!
Enjoy, and everyone please give a warm, Real Bay Area welcome to nomadic.

This fabulous 2,600 sf home feels like a brand new home. 4 BR/3 BA, with basement offer ample space for all your needs. Truly, the best home in area. You’ll love all the luxury upgrades incl. custom décor, solar elec. panels and granite chef’s kitchen. Outside, fabulous deck and hot tub.
In any case, that’s what caught my eye in this listing, besides the bubblicious price of $699,000. The owner is a realtard and he bought it last summer for $680,000 (no doubt eying the prospect of $130k in instant equity). Maybe he’s not being quite so ridiculous, given the next door neighbor’s house is pending at a $688k list price. He ought to take a closer look at his listing though; the lot square footage actually belongs to the house.
I’ll give him props for having faith in modern technology: do you suppose he’s got the solar panels as back up to keep the sump pumps going in case of power loss? A basement in Alviso seems to be an act of hubris.
I’m trying to puzzle out the listing history too. It says it was sold August 18,2010, yet it’s been on the market for 245 days. The listing also has this note:
- Listing Date: Tuesday, July 20, 2010
- Status Date: Thursday, July 29, 2010
Can anyone solve this mystery nomadic has dug up in the slough? Or are you too busy writing up your overbids so you can unlock that instant equity?
