This isn’t a teardown. This is ART!

Today we’re headed back to Cupertino, the land of million dollar tract homes.  This may not be the least expensive house in Cupertino, but it won’t cost you a million.  Best of all, admission to the art show is completely free!

Thanks very much to Burbed reader Tracy for sharing this set of museum-quality photos!  (Although please note I did not say what kind of museum they belong in.)

imageHere’s why Tracy was kind enough to share this trip to the art museum:

Another in my “best photographers of real estate” series. House must have a bad roof line. Or the artist just likes to frame his/her pictures in the bottom ¾ again. I really like the old fashion stereo shot. Also features room corners.

imageThere are so many winners in this collection that it’s quite difficult to choose a favorite, but I would have to say mine is “Small sink next to cropped out commode completely blocking access to the shower.”

What’s your favorite image?  I’ve included a few more compositions for you to mull over, but be sure to admire the entire oeuvre over at the Redfin Gallery.

But before heading over to the photography display, why not consider checking out the house?  The Redfin agent did so… eight different times.  He must really have a thing for art shots.



Maybe nines do well in selling art photography, but if the agent wants to sell the house, they’d better start looking for some eights.  So far, only the Redfin agent found any.

    “Top Cupertino Schools.”

    Yet selling at a loss of over $100k…

    Why are the pictures so streaky/blurry? Did he forget to wipe off the vaseline after a porn shoot?

  3. Mole Man Says:

    But this and the lot next door and prepare both and it might be possible to get started for less than a million. Build a monster or do a PUD with a cluster of mini-monsters. Rinconada Gables, here we come!

    This house does not have a 4 in number. On the other hand, adding all the digits in 10160 gets you 8. Yet, the house is not selling!! What’s wrong with Cupertino?

    Where are all the Chinese buyers with bags of yuans? If you see them, just tell them that this house is just 2 minute drive from “high end place” Dynasty. Then overbidding will take the price where it needs to be.

    aha, this is your lucky day! The house went pending in February, but the sale must have fallen through. And it was relisted just this Wednesday, for just $649,900. It should be selling shortly.

  7. Sunny(vale) Kim Says:

    100 kids!!! Looks like someone found his fertile match in bay area.

  8. SEA Says:

    You need more than the standard RBA double to keep up with 100 kids. The standard overbidding divided by 100 is simply not enough.
