YOU can afford Woodside! Yes, YOU! (Outbuilding garage is currently not usable)

Ah, Woodside, home of the record-breaking property sale.  Also home of Larry Ellison (well, one of of homes, because he sold the other one).  Point is, Woodside is for CEOs and Venture Capitalists, not worker bees.  WRONG!  Today’s featured property, courtesy of Burbed reader holyzoo, shows that Entry Level in Woodside is welcoming you to Executive Acres!  Read on and find out why!

Brother to another… etc. . you know the cliche… I have been tracking your website for a LONG time, saving untold sums avoiding therapist bills.

I’ll keep on keeping on, and probably begin to send you more crap than you want, but this busted me up today. We were looking at Mid-Peninsula Skyline properties today – one was a granny shack for $650k. As dated as 1930 can provide.. be prepared for major dryrot repair, complete remodel, or better yet, tear it down and rebuild.

W00t! Teardown! Value is in the land, which is why they’re making more of it. Two parcels, no waiting.  And yes, the granny shack was built in 1930, which means it qualifies for the old house tag!


And so convenient!

    “It is ideal for a contractor or handyman.”

    Ideal for handyman who has access to more than “not a lot of money.” Most handymen are like that, right?

    ooo! knotty pine kitchen cabs & fake wood formica. what’s not to love?

    there are 101 diff shades of wood-like things. or maybe it’s only 50 shades of wood. torture comes in all forms these days.

    Just wondering about the “80-year old house” theme I keep seeing on the site. Do some sort of teardown restrictions come into play after 80 years?

    Something must encumber the property at that price. I was rubbing my chinny-chin-chin thinking, “hmmmm … almost an acre for under $3m!?” I have lived in the RBA too long.

    It’s an unincorporated, remote area without sewer service. They’re lucky to even have power.

    That’s right! It isn’t “Real Woodside!”

    Oops! Seems those clumsy Customs agents must have stamped that URL a little too brusquely when you sent it from Indirapuram. Now it’s broken beyond repair. We’ll take it to the e-waste dump, no charge (this time)! –ed.
