Get out your FasTrak box, we’re crossing over to the East Bay today! Thanks very much to Burbed reader J from Alameda, who reminds us that anyplace, no matter how unlike the RBA, can be Burbed-worthy. Remember, if a property is in the Bay Area, it can be Burbed too!
J sent us a Zillow link, so that’s what we’re using. And that’s because we’re still really annoyed that Redfin stopped linking to us without explanation, but still emblazons “Bloggers, have you written about this property?” on every listing. So what are we, Redfin, chopped liver?

Here’s why J sent in this Alameda amazement.
Not RBA but perhaps Burbed worthy. So, it’s a partially finished remodel – not new news that someone ran out of money.
However, the photos. It’s sort of ‘staged’ – table in dining room, cabinet in living room, bed in bedroom (did not have time to get the comforter on right). The stair photo – written on the top stair is ‘keep out’. Finally, the lovely wall mounted fire extinguisher near the window in the other bedroom. Fascinating what an agent does, or does not bother to do.
You know what that lonely table in the dining room reminds us of? Those abandoned real estate as art photos by Edgar Martins. The bedroom photos are suggestive of his work as well. Here are the two J mentioned above.
Plus this was an awesome opportunity to break out the RED ARROW toolkit.
