Here’s another listing from the wilds of San Jose hillbilly country, from intrepid Burbed reader Tracy!
SQ. FT.: 2,977
$/SQ. FT.: $235
LOT SIZE: 2.67 Acres
PROPERTY TYPE: Detached Single Family
YEAR BUILT: 1970
COUNTY: Santa Clara

Large 4 bedroom 3 bathroom home located on large 116,000 SF lot. Room for off street parking and detached converted garage makes this the perfect home for your large family and toys. Nice patio deck with some views of the surrounding area. Tenant in property, please make appointment to see and do not disturb occupants.
Here’s what Tracy has to say about this property:
Wow, I feel for the “tenants” AKA owners who are being foreclosed on. However, maybe they have less worries since the photography of the listing is so bad! Could the lighting be any dingier? When the main selling point is “room for off street parking,” and there are only pictures of the lot, temporary buildings and cars, I wonder how they got the kitchen shot.
On the plus side, I think the picture of the four Cypress trees is very artistic. I guess the agent imagines that a detached garage makes a house perfect for a large family… but I wonder what lurks behind those bushes!
Artistic? I guess it takes a certain kind of talent to use a modern camera and manage to overexpose the yard but leave the flash off inside. At least the date is still readable in both shots.
And props to the agent for having the date set correctly. Remember that listing where all the pictures were from 2003? I think it cost a few thousand more than this place, too.
Okay, do any Burbed readers know what this is all about:
- Tenant Rights
What tenant rights are involved in San Jose house rentals? Is this like Berkeley where you’re obligated to let the tenant stay 40 years or until they die in your house, whichever comes last? Is that why the price went down 90% in six months back in 2003?
Tenant in property. Sounds like removal is going to be painful.
