Remember the house we featured yesterday, the “fixer” in San Francisco? Yes, it was in hot, hot, HOT Noe Valley, so of course all the agent had to do was take pictures and slap that puppy on the MLS to let the wild overbidding start. This low-inventory situation means less work for agents, so they can spend more time finding more excellent properties… for our front page.
Inventory isn’t low just in San Francisco. Today’s house in Saratoga, courtesy of Burbed reader hsjb, may remind you of yesterday’s. Grab your oven mitts, because you better be ready for the heat!

single family ranch style home in a quiet cul-de-sac with great potential!! 4 bedrooms, 2bathrooms, 3yr new red tiled roof, hardwood floors, copper plumbing, nice size yard with pool and jacuzzi, close to great schools and needs updating and reflected in the price.
Here’s what hsjb had to say when alerting us to this superb suburban synonym-for-“house”-that-starts-with-the-letter-S.
The agent who took these photos really knows how to make this home look attractive enough to go check out.
He certainly does! Yet after this was sent in to Burbed, the house went pending anyway! This is a signal to realtards everywhere: you needn’t bother with the light bulbs and Drano anymore. These houses really do sell themselves. All the agent needs is a camera phone. We’ve got plenty of pictures for you, so click on through to the Open House!
You can really appreciate an agent who puts in the work to take 24 pictures that all say “Now is the time to buy!” And look at the marketing to prove it!
Lower the price after accepting an offer. Any ideas what’s going on here?
