Earthquake proof house in Colma – just $399k!

360 2nd AVE Colma, CA 94014

Price: $399,000
Buy with Redfin and Save $7,980*
Beds: 1
Baths: 1
Sq. Ft.: 600
$/Sq. Ft.: $665
Lot Size: –
Property Type: Detached, Single-Family Home
Year Built: 1902
Stories: 1
Region: San Mateo County/Northwest
Area: Colma
County: San Mateo
MLS#: 335990

Contractor special. Small house on a big lot. Potential for new construction/addition.

$666 per square foot is pretty reasonable, given that this house isn’t in the Real Bay Area. But let’s face it, the real selling point of this house is that it is earthquake proof! Just from looking at this picture, you can already tell that this house has been stress tested and is well equipped to handle the next calamity.

Why risk the lives of you children by buying a brand new house that’s unproven? You want a house that you know has withstood the test of time. Furthermore, it’s like those $250 jeans – this house is distressed and distressed is HAWT.

It’ll also confuse robbers! “What is this? A pile of wood? A house? I’ll move on to the next place.” Safety first my friends!

So go ahead, go vintage. Go buy this house.

Now, I don’t know much about Colma… and maybe it’s just an optical illusion – but am I the only one who’s worried that everything would constantly be sliding over to the right in this house?

Gotta love that garage though – you can easily turn the top of it into a 3rd bedroom!

Burbed usually doesn’t post about Colma – but what the heck is up with that garage? And doesn’t it look like there’s one window missing from the front of that house?
