Burbed Reader Adam had this to say:

Check out 1127 mound alameda, ca
Delusional floppers at work. I believe it’s the second higest $/sq foot in alameda @ 747 sq foot.

Looks nice huh? Those floppers did a really good job on the outside, what with all that beautiful resin lattice work ($20 a sheet from home depot). I see no reason they shouldn’t expect a 200% return on their investment in a little over a year.

Uh, Adam – Alameda is prime. The sheer fact that it’s in the Bay Area means it deserves returns like that. Now, granted, it’s not as prime as Milpitas, where some houses appreciated $1500+ per day (check back next week to see this!) – but still, it’s special here.

I predict this will double again next year. It’s inevitable especially with the strong job growth here!
