Mawbul Kawlumz + Palo Alto + Short Sale + ??? = PROFIT!

Here’s a Palo Alto property that will be selling shortly. At least it would be if the agent hadn’t used such teeny tiny little listing photos.  Our thanks to Burbed reader Petsmart Groomer for alerting us to this winner. And you know by winner we actually mean something that rhymes with “snoozer.”

I can’t believe this wasn’t featured already. Or did it become a short sale recently?

Recently? Sure, if “newly constructed” can mean a six year old house, why the heck not?  At least there are mawbul kawlumz on the inside too.  (Sorry no red arrows, the pictures are so small we’re worried they’d break.)

Also check out the listing history!


Price cuts, price increases, pending, relisted, this place has it all!  Even a bargain basement $720 back in 2011 during the slowdown!  All we can say for sure is based on this comment, whoever owns it was dealing with three other foreclosures a couple of years ago – ALL of them in Palo Alto.

    Someone had a good payday buying that Coleridge foreclosure and fixing it up a bit.

    For a real laugh, read the listing copy on the flipper’s listing. Perfect burbed material.

    Off topic:

    In case anyone has not been to the new Fresh Market in Palo Alto, I highly recommended paying a visit. The merchandise is eclectic,and the shopping experience is first rate (think Whole Foods 2.0). Being a new store on the peninsula, it’s still somewhat of a best kept secret to out of town folks, so you won’t need to contend with a crowd there. That might not last long when the new Edgewood Plaza is fully built out with new stores and housing. More tips:
    1. If you sign up for their mailing list, you can get coupons that make the price lower than your regular super markets.
    2. Bring your own shopping bag and drive your electric vehicle to charge there while you shop. Be like Palo Alto!

    Yes, because Palo Altans need yet another place to go grocery shopping! Is the chicken local?

    The good news for all the new Palo Alto home debtors is that Grocery Outlet is coming to town.

    Electric vehicle? Didn’t you drive a Boxster? Has RE morphed into a tree-hugging dude with a ponytail?

    Grocery coupons? What has PA become?

    Remember Groupon is based on Palo Alto, not that it has anything to do with the Fresh Market.

    #5- Likely a “tree-hugging dude with a ponytail” and a few unpaid jaywalking tickets.
