I’ve been sitting on this one for quite some time and it’s finally pending but as a short sale, I bet it will have a long luxurious escrow.  Check out the listing price history, more ups and downs than a whack-a-mole game. Bring on the Eichler lovers!

There’s so much to salute about this property, it’s hard to figure out where to start the rollout.  How about we take a look at all the attractive price points it has offered in search of the One True Buyer.

    It’s and Eichler–the very definition of “open house”. Even when the doors and windows are closed, the drafts make it feel very open.

    The best thing about Eichlers is that they burn down so fast that the fire will be completely out before the fire-truck arrives.

    Isn’t “custom built Eichler” technically impossible?

    #3: No, the Eichler company did do some custom builds in addition to the tract developments, so there are some isolated Eichlers sprinkled around the Bay Area.

    I don’t believe I’ve ever seen an Eichler with window bars before.

    The party continues in the Bay Area. Now we have even more millionaires. Check out how some people party.

    This is truly a great time to be in the Bay Area. We got the tech industry, we got the car industry, and we got the best assembly of sports teams anywhere – The 49′ers, Giants, and Warriors!

    @6 the window bars make it one of the elusive “Gangsta Eichlaz”

    The saga continues. Back on the market with yet another unexplained price bump. Walking distance from Oakland’s 55th and 57th homicides of 2013.

  12. nomadic Says:

    It’s explained on the revised listing, dollarbin. The bank said it would take $195k, but only if you can close by August 6. Buy now before they reconsider! (Or we can see if the lower the price.)
