Do you love Instagram pictures? Do they help you make an emotional connection to the subject?

Guess what – now we can combine all the things you love! Realtor photos, soft focus, distortions, and other filters!

Just look at this photo above. What emotions does this evoke for you? Does it make you feel better about spending $765 per square foot for this house?

    It hearkens back to simpler times! I can’t tell if that picture was taken in 1960 or yesterday.

    Still, from the listing the possibilities are endless. The only thing you can’t do is keep the home as is.

    Guys, AAPL is going straight to 700 (pre-split). Buy now with confidence, and use profit as down payment for Bay Area real estate!

    Where have you been, BronyCon?

    Asking price for this “land-only” property seems a bit high, given its non-RBA location. Add to that the future costs of eviction, permits, teardown, and (re)building … hard to imagine breaking even, especially in the short term.

    Purchased in 2003 for $775k and assessed at $332k… Zestimate $342k.

    I think it’s safe to say this is overpriced. That’s for anyone who doesn’t know the area and didn’t have “OVERPRICED” already screaming in their head when they saw the map.

    This is 1.3 million bucks for 27,900 square feet of land. A typical lot in the surrounding neighborhood is about 5,500 sq ft. so by the neighborhood’s standards you’re buying the space to build five houses. That makes your “land price” $260,000 a head unless you can convince the city to let you go quite a lot denser than typical for the ‘hood. It looks like you’re lucky if you can sell a 1300-1600 sq ft. house for $400k in that area so, yeah, good luck making a profit on new construction here. Doubling the density with condo townhouses would pretty much be your only hope and I’m sure the neighbors would *love* that.

    Phone cam snap of a Polaroid. Nothing says professional better!

    I know it’s already been reported here that Palo Alto burglaries are up, but now it’s getting ridiculous.

  9. SEA Says:

    Now close is getting “too close.”

  10. CB Says:

    According to Google maps, the distance from the Realtard’s White Rd office to this house is a whopping 5.0 miles.

    Since a current picture was not included in place of this insult to the consumer and seller, I’ll have to assume one of the following:

    1. Larry Le (the Realtard) has yet to sell enough homes to afford a slightly used Infinity sedan, so he shame trains it wherever he goes.

    2. Larry Le doesn’t have to do shit to sell a home. They sell themselves.

    3. 0.03 x 1,300,000 = not worth the gas.

    4. 0.03 x [the actual selling price of this shithole] = not worth the gas.

    Why not use the street view photo as the only photo in the whole listing?

  12. madhaus Says:

    Oh Swan, you should have sent that one in! Did you notice a rather misleading entry for that house?

    Today’s entry really was losing out by not including a good street view shot.

    Or an overhead savor.

  13. SEA Says:

    #12- One DHO in that street view shot–at the bus stop.

  14. nomadic Says:

    #12, I love how the realtard moved 94087 from Sunnyvale to Cupertino. Ah, close enough – it’s practically right next to Homestead high!
