Vaya con Vacaville

BlogAtoZ-VToday’s featured Villa is brought to you by the letter V. Yes, the danged Blogging from A to Z Challenge has not been Vanquished yet.  Verily, we have a Vague suspicion that some are Vexed that we’re skipping over the Rodney Dangerfield of the Bay Area, Vallejo. We feel Vallejo’s been Vanquished and another Village needs the Vital exposure this site gives to Bay Area real estate.

Translation: Vacaville, on Burbed for the Very first time, show us your Virtues!  We could mention the Very name means, literally, “cow town.” At least Vallejo was named after a Victorious general.

This fixer has a good size lot and tremendous potential close to public transportation schools great freeway access.

Ah, a saluting toilet! We’ve missed these.  Maybe more agents read Burbed than we thought, as open toilets are getting more difficult to find in listing photos.  And that’s a Good Thing.

Sunny yellow kitchen and space to dine.

Also this house was foreclosed on in February.  February, 2013. And that’s Vexing, as foreclosures and NODs and other housing fail are down substantially Virtually everywhere.

    Where is the “Build your dream home!“???

  2. Divasm Says:

    I think Vacaville is too far out from the RBA to be able to use that phrase…although if Vacaville is considered part of the Bay Area, we’ve spread waaay too much I think.

  3. Jb Says:

    Where is the ‘bring your contractor’….I love that when the house is over $500,000 and not even in the RBA, just the East almost RBA.

  4. very amused Says:

    If this house is in the RBA then Stockton is the new black.

  5. nomadic Says:

    #4, you should decode Jb’s post better. If I understood correctly, there was a reference to the Eastern annex of the city-that-shall-not-be-named.

    … Wastin’ away again in sh*tty Vacaville… (to a Jimmy Buffett tune)
