Gem nestled in the Quaint town of Campbell

Still not convinced that we’ve entered Bay Area Bubble 4.0?  Burbed reader wahnny has another entry trying to support our hypothesis.  Let’s take a good look at this cavernous castle in Campbell!

Another Gem by Gaurdian Home Brokers, nestled in the Quaint town of Campbell. Located a short walk from starbucks and the Famous Pruneyard Shopping Center. This Bugalow features all new kitchen with granite counters, stainless appliances, paint int/ext, landscape, new windows and more. Top-rated schools.

Another [example of bubble pricing] is a flipped 1900s bungalow in (non-RBA) Campbell,

Not quite as cozy, and on a much smaller lot, but near top-rated schools / starbucks /shopping centers, and currently selling for "not a lot of money".

130117-everett-preflipThis is much better, wahnny, this is a flipped 1900s “bugalow.”  Another Gem by Gaurdian Home Brokers. (If the realtard meant this agency in Folsom, then we must admit this is the first time we’ve caught one who couldn’t properly spell the name of their own broker.)

If you’re interested, the before pictures and listing are available here (photo right).  Here’s the older listing copy:

Amazing potential! Southern-facing FIiXER UPPER w/ sunny fenced yard! In a sweet architecturally eclectic neighborhood a block to the heart of Campbell & restaurants, cafes, boutiques, & Sun. Farmer’s Market. Master br w/ walk-in closet & access to private patio. Eat-in kitchen w/ breakfast nook/laundry closet has French doors to the large yard. Fully fenced & low maint. yard.

Look at that!  For $180K less than the current asking price, you could have done business with an agent who could not only spell, but also use words like “eclectic.”

    15 pictures for 784 square feet? 50 square feet a picture?

    Really, though, it would make a decent in-law quarters.

    “The housing market “is becoming more of a speculative asset,” says Robert Shiller, co-creator of the S&P/Case-Shiller Index and a professor of economics and finance at Yale University.”

    Is it just me, or did they make the backyard WORSE. There was a worn but big enough to actually walk on deck out there, before and now there’s a pair of rickety looking stairs? Great flippin’ job there, idgits!

  4. SEA Says:

    The height of that sliding door must be just below the level where a railing is needed. We all know that flippers would never miss a detail like that. Beyond that, what do you expect for little more than ‘not a lot of money?’

  5. nomadic Says:

    That deck looked really old. It was probably rotted.

  6. SEA Says:

    Too bad this isn’t in the RBA–we’d be asking how many price doubles that old deck has experienced since being built.
