What could be more awesome than a house in Mountain View?

The median Home Value in Mountain View, according to Zillow, is $877,900.  So what could you get for that amount, if you looked for a house in some other part of the country?  If you were willing to look in Maryland, you could get this nice painting of a house.  Plus HOA fees every month!

Holy crap, that’s a lot of CAPITAL LETTERS for the same price you’d pay in Mountain View.  Plus you get a house that hasn’t even been built yet, so you have no idea of the build quality or the feng shui.  And just think of how much work it’s going to be mowing an entire acre or dusting 4500 sf of house.

For this much money in Mountain View, you’d be looking at a vintage one bedroom from 1948,on a 6969 sf foot lot (we’re just reporting the listing, we’re not making innuendos). It boasts a spacious 914 foot floor plan.  Plus the comparable Maryland place, while near such cosmopolitan confluences like Laytonsville,is 2831 miles from Google (we checked).  In current traffic that’s a whizzy 41 hour commute.  One way.

Also, no HOA fees for vintage homes in Mountain View.

Bunus: The home in Maryland was never featured on Burbed, either.  And homes in Maryland, whether or not they’re built, don’t go up $125K in just five months.  Or down $50K at the exact same time

    Did you check out the pic of that agent? He looks like he narrowly made the cast of Jersey Shore or something. Seriously, agents aren’t allowed to look like that in the RBA, the geeks would all be scared off by them – there’s more product in his hair than most Googlers have used in a year!

  2. Raleigh New Homes Says:

    These are amazing. A home with perfect feng shui is really great to have. Feng shui is a view that is thought as helpful for the home owner. So the home is really great.

    These are amazing too. A spam with perfect feng shui is really great to have. Feng shui is a view that is thought as helpful for the spam sender. So the spam is really great. But, it doesn’t have helpful feng shui in its link. Also, very poor feng shui in Raleigh. Too far from Google. Insufficiently Special feng shui. You appreciate the value of perfect feng shui, so be amazed. –ed.
