Cozy and efficient home. Need some TLC and updating to make this home really shine again. Large lot with potential for home expansion/addition. Excellent open floor plan with hard wood flooring and wood burning fire place. Convenient location. Close to shopping and restaurants. Easy access to highways.

Easy access to highways indeed!

Huh. Notice the barred windows, the carefully concealed crawl space.

But wait… there’s more!

Do you spy what I spy? Let’s go in for a closer look!

Whoa. What is this! Is there buried treasure underneath? Is that what makes this home so special? What could possibly be under there? Pre-ipo shares of GOOG? AAPL?

I think you had better buy this house soon before Nicholas Cage does!

    Is that a bomb shelter?

    HAHAHA I think its a getaway tunnel. When the wife cooks something you don’t like, just sneak away.

    It’s a back up toilet for business continuity purposes. When workers need to tear up the bathroom for TLC, life goes on in the back.

    Fed is warning about persistent housing slowdown. Even though Bay Area has its own economy, many parts of non-RBA are certainly not immune. There are just too many signs of bubble and risk right now.

    Oh no, this nation is really going to the toilet now.

    @RE: I was reading on an European financial magazine that US is now at the lowest rate of “house property” (sorry, I do not know the correct word) in history: the lowest percentage of people actually owning a house. something like 63%…
    Is it true?

    Q1 2014 home ownership rate is lowest in almost 20 years.
