HERE IS THE OPORTUNITY TO OWN A NICE HOUSE IN THE DESIRED MOUNTAIN VIEW AREA, WITH PERFECT LOCATION ACROSS FROM PARK AND SUPERMARKETS, NICE 3 BED 2 BATH ONLY 14 YEARS OLD.
Between soaring incomes, and some price trims, Mountain View is getting affordable. For example, this house was featured on Burbed about a year ago as well:
Since then, things have changed a little. The market has corrected, and it has bottomed out. YES THIS IS THE BOTTOM MY FRIENDS.
Also, the other thing that changed about this house was that last year, they didn’t know when it was built – but now, they’ve concluded that it was built 14 years ago. That’s the kind of amazing research we can do only here in Silicon Valley.
$20k off. Why aren’t you jumping at buying this house? Are you really that fussy? Sheesh.

I read your blog every now and then for a good laugh. Thanks for the fine sarcastic humor!
The yellow Daly City house featured on your site was quite a hit. Well, there is a yellow house in Mountain View as well which deserves mention – 140 S Rengstorff Ave Mountain View 94040 (MLS#: 800437)
I began looking up houses on www.mlslistings.com last year in September. This house was listed on 09/27/07 (possibly much earlier) at $875,000. By 10/27/07, the price had dropped to 819,988. I stopped tracking prices for a while after that. I restarted looking at prices this month, and now I find the same house listed at $939,000! Sweet 14% appreciation in less than 6 months! It looks like the house was taken off the list and re-listed on 04/08/2008 for $939k. Impressive appreciation for a house which has been sitting on the market for more than 9 months now. Maybe because it is in zip code 94040! Or, maybe simply because it is yellow.
It’s a roller coaster ride for sure – and as we all know, roller coasters end at the top, not at the bottom. Or something like that.
