7 mos on market? Repaint and raise price in East Palo Alto

So I noticed this house recently – and it really seemed familiar. Especially the car. Do you remember it?

Of course you do! This is the third time it’s been on Burbed!

Last time, it showed up on Burbed (8/21) because the price had be hiked. And this is what it looked like then:

And before then it was on Burbed (2/21/06) as one of the first entries for $506,000:

Look! It’s the same car:

So everyone, if your house doesn’t sell for 7 months, raise the price and then repaint it. Be sure to leave the security bars though – the house is a “steal”!

Does this house look familiar? It should! It was one of the first few houses featured on Burbed.com back in February (despite the list date that says 7/28):

$629,000 for a drive through house

It’s not immediately clear to me whether we’re looking at the front or the back – but I’m assuming its the front. If you’re going to live in this house, why not just go all the way and make your front patio door wider so that you can drive in! It’d be even more convenient, and then at night, you could sleep in your car with the alarm on.

$529,000 for 480 sqft house in East Palo Alto

MLSlistings Property Detail for MLS number 638455

City/Public Water Lot: 1 to 4,500 Sq Ft Free Standing Range/Oven

Wow… that’s over $1,102 per square foot in East Palo Alto. I guess the good part about this house is that when you put up the chain-link fence with
razor wire on top, you don’t have to spend so much. Plus, how much can you be burglarized when your house is only 480 square feet?

Alright, so it is actually a house – not just a garage. But the real question is – does the buyer get to keep the flag?

Bonus studio in this East Palo Alto house! $589,950

I saw this picture, and I thought there was something strange… but I couldn’t put my finger on it. Was it hte staircase that looks like it is held together with Elmer’s glue? Is it the retro gas stove?
