It looks like the art of writing great real estate copy has been lost in this new decade. Just look at the primary photo! Doesn’t this call for some reference to the enormous parking opportunities that this house has to offer? Just look at all the vans and suv’s that can fit in that driveway.

You know what this house really is right? It’s a safe house. Yep. Part of the CIA’s “black site” network. (Or CTU – you never know.) Those vans and suvs in the driveway? Disguised.

Let me show you where they use enhanced interrogation techniques:

This house is what’s keeping freedom and liberty alive in America. You’re welcome, citizens.

    Looks like you’re sharing a driveway here with a smallish apartment or condo complex (Unless that’s a monster house next door). Also not sure why the listing copy is so excited about a non-permitted addition, although I guess that makes the 970sqft sting less.

    Also, $670K in 2006. :-( Still makes me sad when I see people losing their, uh, butts like that, makes me wonder if I could be next.

    That’s not a bad price on the house if all 14 of those cars are included in the deal.

    Oh hell, who am I kidding. What a rip off!

    Your own house was featured on burbed. But considering you bought recently, it can only mean instant equity.

    #1 – Relax, it won’t happen to you. RE always goes up, remember? They’re not making any more land and all that. And besides, you’re a special, unique snowflake, bad things like that don’t happen to good people. All those people losing their asses brought it on themselves somehow. They probably sinned somehow. Spanked it, that’s probably what they did. Don’t ever spank your poor, innocent, monkey.

    Just got the final bill for the lightbulbs and draino required to replace the retaining walls. I know our contractor is having a Merry Christmas. (Hint, it was more than 1% of the purchase price.)

    Madhaus,
    This is the funniest entry of 2011.
    That Tuffshed is an interrogation hut? I thought someone was just livng there for $700/month, plus more DHO in the converted garage for $800, which would explain the DHO-like vehicles in the shared driveway.
    I just have no imagination.
