We swear we looked at every single picture and couldn’t find any sign of that traditional stile. And while Trulia won’t tell us which neighborhood of Mountain View is the quiet,family oriented one, we did find it on a map.


They definitely meant it about easy access to freeway. Why didn’t they tell us they meant easy access to freeways? Two is twice as good. Are they part of the family fun?

    Nice virtual tour showing all the rubbish in the back.

    I love seeing the ‘fill in’ houses built in places that nobody would build a house 30+ years ago because nobody would buy a house in that location back then. This is the RBA! Lower your standards!

    Tile counters, Oak Cabinets, White Appliances!

    They did have my family in mind in 2002, my 1992 family!

    Watching that virtual tour with the sad waiting-room soft jazz brought a tear of nostalgia to my eye. It was like watching a really depressing home movie.

  5. SEA Says:

    The wall ends at near the property line, so a traditional stile is unnecessary.

    Real Estater, I haven’t been on the site since the crash. have the mea culpas been issued? Looks as though you were right — 2009 WAS the time to buy. I didn’t and as I entered my sixth year of renting, I wonder what could have been. There used to be a guy went by Willow Glenner on this who said he was picking up properties too at that time, he sounded credible. Oh well, I’m priced out forever. I never criticized you but I guess I’ll go ahead and apologize on behalf of madhaus, pralay and Bob from Fremont.

    That’s stupid. Real Estater said EVERY time was the time to buy. Stock market up? Time to buy. Stock market down? Time to buy. Rates up? Time to buy. Rates down? Uh huh. Market collapse? Time to buy. Massive foreclosures everywhere? Time to buy. Overbidding with cash? You know the answer.

    You know when the time to buy was? 2011. Otherwise, forget it.

    There’s a washer and dryer next to the table in the kitchen.

    I always found RE to be quite credible. He was not afraid to say things people either didn’t want to hear, or simply couldn’t see at the time. I’ve seen his advice tested enough to be a believer. He also acted on his own advice. Some might say he was making things up, but then again during his search he didn’t claim he bought something even when poked hard by his opponents.

    yikes!! A million bucks to live right by the freeway?? I briefly lived a few blocks from 101 in San Mateo back in the ’90’s and it was NASTY…it is not just the air and the noise, everything outdoors was covered by a fine black grit, maybe diesel soot, tire dust, brake pad material etc…never again at any price.

  11. Real Estater Says:

    Ah…the good old days. To #7, it was indeed a great time to buy in 2009, in 2010, in 2011, and even in 2012. That’s why I said it EVERY time and yet the fools disregarded it every time as opportunities flew by one after after. I said I was trying to help and I meant it!

    Same thing happened a short while back when I stated that FB is a solid company and the stock price offered a great buying opportunity. I reiterated my call a few times, and the same short-sighted persons mocked the call.

    In any case, I reiterate my statement to our good friend nomadic: Ignore my guidance at your own cost.
