Contemporary Condo in Campbell!

BlogAtoZ-CWelcome to day #3 of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge! That means we’ve Crept up to letter C for Challenge.  C is also for County, as in Check County records (Cuz they’re Cocked up).  C is for California, where most all the real estate we look it Comes from.  C is for Committed, which you must be to purchase any kind of property in a bubble market. (Yes, C is also for Crazy.) And C is for suit Cases full of Cash!  Which you will need, as C is for what happens after B for Bubble: C is for housing Crash.

Living at its best… in Downtown Campbell

130128-rincon-soupMmmm Good!  That’s what Campbell’s Soup is… but how about Campbell’s Real Estate?  Campbell doesn’t tend to get a lot of respect when people talk about where they want to buy, but let’s look at its positive qualities.  It’s equally inconvenient to most freeways, so no location fail on that score! It’s definitely got varied housing stock, which means there should be something for everyone (provided by “everyone” we do not mean people looking in the Real Bay Area). And it’s got so many crapboxen, we find ourselves dipping into the Campbell well again and again for featured homes! 

Let’s look at today’s proud property listing, sent in by Burbed reader Lefty Lucy.

Don’t miss this charmer in Downtown Campbell! This 2 bedroom & 1 Bath bungalow is living at its best. Located on a corner lot, features include cherry hardwood floors, updated bath, wrap around rear deck, indoor laundry, living / dining room combo and so much more! Cozy yard with fruit trees. A must see!

130128-rincon-entryOkay, Double L, tell us about this house you’ve picked.

Irregular but frequent reader, first time sender (though you must have gotten this from others as well!). 

I guess the bubble really is back. $961/square foot bungalow in oh-so-desirable Campbell: Ouch!  First time buyers like me are priced out forever, I guess (not that I’m shopping in Campbell, but it’s beyond crazy in my Santa Clara neighborhood as well).

$961? Who do they think they are, Mountain View?

Also note that this half a million dollar house is a pre-war bungalow.  That’s pre-World War I.
