Alum Rock Adventure Awaits! Um… TOO LATE!

Burbed loves East San Jose, because some of the best properties can be found here.  That is, if by “best” we actually mean “Can you believe this?”  Thanks very much to Burbed reader Tracy Tea House for proving once more, that when it comes to housing, Alum Rocks!

120425-mtherman-concrete[4]Here’s why Tracy thought you’d love this place:

Here is a shack that proves the point, interior pictures are unnecessary anymore. Now if you can just “maintain” yourself, all rooms are converted. Even the car  has been covered, and probably converted.

These photographs have so much artistry in them, and such a unique point of view. The detail shot of the concrete is inspiring me. As a bonus, you will not be able to leave the house by car twice a day. If you want to walk however, the school has crossing guards.

Now wait, this house is Special.  It has been maintain by sellers, something one rarely finds in buying a house from them.

Bunus: the reason this house was withdrawn is that it got foreclosed on April 2nd

    Down more than $250k over ~7 years. If only the ‘owner’ would have kept up with average market losses over the years, more than $3,000 per month.

    Too often I hear things like, “There’s no loss realized until I actually sell.” Then the next claim is something like, “If I never sell, then I’ll never take any loss,” or, alternatively, “The market will return someday.”
