So much potential nestled on the hill

Yesterday we had a place in hot, hot, HOT Mountain View that has been on the market for more than a hundred days.  That was a fun game, so let’s play Why Won’t This House Sell yet again.  Today we move to San Mateo County and the delightful breezy bivouac of Brisbane!

So much potential nestled on the hill, great floor plan. SF Bay views from almost every room, kitchen breakfast bar, living room with fireplace, 2 car garage, deck in front, back yard has stairs leading up to tiered gardens of peach, lemon and Japanese plum trees, absolutely gorgeous when in bloom. Yellow roses, and room for your gardening dreams. Inside open stairway with wall of colored/obscure glass that could be replaced with windows with more SF Bay views. Low E Dual pane windows only 4 years old, Furnace only 7 years old and new water heater. Broken window and minor wall repairs will be done by sellers. House is dated and needs some TLC for sure.

130521-sierra-windowsIs this the wall of colored/obscure glass on the left? Better not break any of it, as it’s going to be a long look through lots of old, musty catalogs finding where to replace that.  And really, who cares about the house anyway? Value is in the land, because what you’re paying for is this view of the Bay.

And of the power lines.

    A Broken Window isn’t really a minor repair when the house is sloping to the left.

    Only a few more years and you won’t have to pay to tear it down, it will have fallen down the hill!

    Smart people know that buying this property is a risk-free strategy, and that “broken window and minor wall repairs” will be done to buyer’s satisfaction, I am sure.

    I think the key can be found in the tour insights.. “No bathroom in Master bedroom”.

    The Redfin agent comment mentions the “shallow driveway.” Is that why the car is parked sideways? Not much usable land to have value here.
