Listings tend to fall into certain kinds of categories here at Burbed. There’s your all around crapshack, usually sold for the land value and no pictures inside. There’s your overbuilt flip that’s wrong for the neighborhood. There’s your overbuilt “dream home” that’s wrong for any neighborhood, and its cousin, the nightmare home whose builder ran out of money. Burbed reader Tracy Tea House has found us something else entirely over in East San Jose: winner of the wtf tag.

Split level home with so much potential. Three bedrooms upstairs and two downstairs. Open floor plan with large living room. Inside laundry. Downstairs bedrooms may be locked but rest of the house is view-able. Large separate storage room outside, detached workshop. Some double-pane windows. Home needs front and back landscaping, has nice decorative stone wall. Good handyman special.
We’re not going to let a little thing like the house not being for sale stop us. Besides, Movoto’s got it for $350,000.
Here’s what Tracy had to say when sending in this Alum Rock redoubt:
Do not drink before viewing these pictures!
Oh wow. Wrong in so many ways, but the picture of the kitchen is a first for me! This house just hit the market for 350K
What, you’ve never seen green cabinets before? Oh, you mean this one.
We don’t think we’ve ever seen one of those in a kitchen before either. Guess putting it outside isn’t that good an idea.
