When PG sent this in, the house was simply noted as “East Palo Alto wonder.” As, we wonder why anyone would build a house in East Palo Alto to this level of finish. Let alone two houses.
Then we realized that the builder either took too long to catch the last bubble, or is positioning to catch the next one. And isn’t $750K a reasonable price to pay for 2 houses in an up-and-coming neighborhood (that is, if by up-and-coming, we really mean “last up, first down”?) Good thing the agent is pinching pennies by not wasting them on extra spaces in the listing copy.
Also, check out how well these luxe lodgings fit in with the neighborhood!
Let the gentrification begin! Again!
