Wow… that’s certainly a unique house. According to Movoto, the Realtor notes read:

SFGate: Bay Area is too Expensive. Burbed:Bay Area is too Affordable [Burbed.com]

The other day, a commenter named Martin posted this (edited) comment:

SFGate: Bay Area is too Expensive. Burbed:Bay Area is too Affordable [Burbed.com]
Look at this house:
http://www.movoto.com/real-estate/homes-for-sale/CA/Daly-City/1125-Hanover-St-100_728944.htm

I selected a decent house in Daly City. It costs $514,900. Other houses before this one I consider a junk.
Sorted by price from low to high. So, it’s 9th, out from 339.

[snip]

A tiny amount has a household income above 150k.

So, what can justify this kind of house pricing???!
Why it costs so much and who can afford it???!
Daly City is a dirty neighborhood with a worst weather on a peninsula.

I wouldn’t buy this house even for 100k!

Let’s look at the house he found:

Hey that looks familiar!

Why, it’s from the famous “Yellow house that had me at hello” post from back in August…

And the original post back in January:

Wow! What a wild year it’s been!

Come on Martin – this house has already been reduced 39%. Buy it! It was meant for you!

Yellow house that had me at hello – price cut!

Does this house look familiar? It should – it was featured previously on this site:

Wow… a 25% price cut. Well, that doesn’t really mean anything – I hear that Daly City isn’t part of the Bay Area anymore – just like how Gilroy was recently removed.

Wait a minute… according to Zillow:

05/30/2006:     $815,000

Ok… I’m super mega confused. What’s going on here?

This $579,000 house needs ointment

Dear House – you might want to ask your doctor if ointment is right for you. You’ve got some wacky peeling problems on the front. Sunburn in Daly City perhaps? Mold? Best to get that checked out. At least you’re only $579,000!

You go house, you go.

$770,000 house – perfect for vampires

Welcome to Day 4 of Burbed’s Daly City Week!

First, a fact about Daly City: Population (year 2000): 103,621. Estimated population in July 2005: 100,339 (-3.2% change)
And now, a fine Daly City house:

So you pay the Realtor(TM) a 3% fee usually. Do they charge less if you use them at night? Maybe that’s why this photo is the way it is.

But wait, let’s look at the other photos!

368winchesterb.jpg

There’s only one conclusion: this house was meant for vampires.

$599,000 – includes "Street art" on street sign

Welcome to Day 3 of Burbed’s Daly City Week!

First, a fact about Daly City: Median house value: $335,000 (year 2000)
And now, a fine Daly City house:

This Single Family Residence has the following features:

Detached Single Family 1 Story Contemporary

Now some would call that graffiti. But I would have to call it Street Art. It really does add character to this $599,000 house in Fogville.

Let’s have a peek inside shall we?

70eastb.jpg

Are they working in the second photo to add more street art? I guess it’s a plus that the PG&E meter is easy to access. Oh wait… to use Realtor(TM) speak: “EASY ACCESS TO METERS!!!! BUY NOW!!!”

Did I see this at SF MOMA? Or on Pee Wee's Playhouse?

Welcome to Day 2 of Burbed’s Daly City Week!

First, a fact about Daly City: Daly City and neighboring Colma have emerged as a shopping mecca for San Francisco residents. The combination of plentiful free parking space (compared to the constrained and expensive parking options in San Francisco) and San Mateo County’s historically slightly lower state sales tax rate have contributed to this trend.
And now, a fine Daly City house:

So far… nothing out of the ordinary. (Well… except for the fact that it’s sunny in this photo of Daly City – how did they do that?) Until this photo:

372glen-b.jpg

SPROING!!!!!!!! What the heck?? I swear I saw this in the permanent collection at SF MOMA. Burbed reader John thinks its from Pee Wee’s Playhouse.

What do you think? Does that help make this place worth $699,000 or take away?

I don’t know about you – but maybe it’s best that bathroom stays out of focus!
