Garage conversion to a studio is being used as rental, Maybe illegal! No knowledge of permits. AS IS Sale only! Only showing 4/13 and 4/14 11-2pm


This is so exciting! Maybe illegal! Or immoral, or fattening. With No Notion of permits, Nothing’s impossible. So Not only is this Nice home available for Not a lot of money, it’s also Notorious!

    THAT is after a 2 year remodel? Who are they renting it too? Damian? The Three Stooges? Oscar the Grouch?

    The bathroom looks more like they stuck a toilet and sink in the corner of a bedroom.

    Oscar for sure.

    Up 86.9% in under 2 years? Very RBA! (Forget that negative 69.7%) Not bad for an illegal.

    “studio is being used as rental, Maybe illegal …!”

    This could mean a lot of things. It could mean:

    “studio is being used as rental, Maybe illegal business such a meth lab is being operated from the studio!”

    It might be fun having one of these fill in the gaps competition on burbed.
