Happy Birthday to Us!

Did you know that Burbed turned six last week?  Our very first post was on February 4th, 2006.  Here’s a peek:

What’s really great about the very first house on Burbed is it’s a castle on Buckingham Avenue!  That’s like finding a ski chalet on Zermatt Street, or a tilt-up industrial building on Technology Drive!

If you look up the listing history on Redfin, we can see just how good a job the agent did with that $555K asking price.

What do you think this house would sell for in today’s fever-pitched market?  Close to Facebook… I would say $888K FTW!

Any suggestions for celebrating six years of Burbed content?  This is an open thread.

1 Year of Burbed! Let’s follow up on 96 Buckingham Ave, Redwood City, CA 94063

Wow! Can you believe that it’s been one year already since the first post on Burbed?

Here’s the house from the first post:

$555k – “Great Potential” in Redwood City — Burbed.com: Your Silicon Valley Home and Mortgage Insanity Blog

Whatever happened to this fine Bay Area house?

Palo Alto Online Palo Alto Weekly: HOME SALES (May 5, 2006)

96 Buckingham Ave. Fong Trust to P for $585,000

Okay. Good to know. So what’s the current zEstimate?

$637,615

Sweet!

Mr. P, I think you deserve to buy a new 5-series BMW using this hard earned equity that you can extract. You’ve lived in the house – hard work – and now it’s time to reap the rewards!

Congrats!
