Guess what everyone! Burlingame is now officially affordable! You heard it here first.

That stuff in the roof? Probably just some dirt that needs to be painted away. I mean, it’s located a little close to a few cars:

So… it’s probably just a little soot. Nothing some paint can’t fix.

Hey… Is that a Hidden Mickey?

I think there’s a lot of potential here. And just think of all the opportunities with that funky interior, and the nifty triangular lot on the outside! The Burlingame Mystery Mansion perhaps?
