A little larger than county records

Yes. I would also guess that this home may be larger than county records. By just a little though.

Any thoughts on how one would go about measuring this?

    Danged guest posters. Keep forgetting to set date AND time.

    So… original house razed and new house built without permitting/inspection? Or did a giant house-pooping bird fly by overhead and encase the existing 2-1 with a fecally-green hued covering?

    Which part was built in 1933? (Driveway maybe? The “bridge”?)

    “Property Information
    * Fixer Upper
    * Subject to 1031 Tax Exchange

    Listing Information
    * Tenant Rights”

    I know what you’re thinking: Like the tax code, buying and selling real estate is very simple.

    That part with the front door that’s poking out of the right side might be the original shack. They’ve been trying to drop this deuce for over a year and a half now!

    “They’ve been trying to drop this deuce for over a year and a half now!”

    By lowering the price the seller is sending the wrong message. The price should be increasing, and a buyer should buy before he is ‘priced out forever.’

    Seller will consider some financing.

    We’re going to be seeing offers of seller financing a LOT in the future. But I like how the seller hides behind weasel words like “will consider” and “may be larger.”

    They forgot to mention the POTENTIAL of this place, though.

    Burn it down, measure ashes area, multiply by 2.

    I bought an office trailer recently and I just measured it, frankly I just counted floor tiles. I also recently, because I got curious, measured the trailer I live in, I thought it was 8′ by 25′ and it’s more like, actually inside, 7′ by 21′ or so.

    I spent too much time driving around in the Santa Cruz Mountains today and I don’t understand the appeal. Tiny twisty roads, huge trees everywhere, and everyone’s got either an eccentric hippy house or a faux country estate.

    Still for sale. Now only $650k. Anyone need a last-minute Christmas gift?

    I say on March 20th, we have a little party to celebrate 1000 days on Redfin.
